Amanda Franklin April 9 Update

Kyle reported that the last two days have been good for Amanda. She's been working hard in physical therapy - when they sat her up in bed, she held herself up about ten minutes. When they put her on her feet, she stood on her own about fifteen seconds. Each of these are great advances for her.

Monday the doctors plan to graft skin from her scalp to her face. Later in the week, they plan to graft some of her cell-grown skin onto her arms, legs and stomach. It has taken this long to grow her skin. Since this skin is extremely fragile, she will be heavily sedated to keep her from moving.

Kyle said:

She is doing so well and being so strong. None of this is easy for her I can see the pain in her face but I can't tell you how proud I am of her.
