Amanda Franklin April 14 Update - 2

Amanda's surgery today went well but she is at a critical juncture in her recovery. The doctors took off all of the old cadaver skin and bleached out her open wounds. They did not completely clean her back side because they didn't want to hurt her facial grafts. They will work on that in tomorrow's surgery.

The crisis is the condition of her infections. They are getting bad - doctors are seeing signs of colonization. According to Kyle, the doctor frankly told him that if they don't get the infection under control, she might not make it.

Understandably it has been a hard day for the family. Please continue to pray for Amanda, Kyle and their family. She has already been through so much in the last month.

Kyle's post included the following:

Today was the first time since the day of the accident that I felt like I might actually lose her. Even as strong as she is, after all her body has already been through, I don't know if it can fight off this bad of an infection. I have always been a fix-it person, I can fix anything, but God help me I can't find a way to fix this. I would give my life in a heartbeat to get her out of this.
