My husband was burned on both of his arms from a kitchen fire 3 years ago, July, 2010. He was out of work for 5 months. I took off of work for 3 months, to take care of him. It was a trying time for us both, but we made it. When he first came home from the hospital, it would take us 4 hours to get him bathed and wrapped up. We had to have a chair in the bathtub, since he couldn't stand up that easily. He lived in our room for 4 months, before he was able to go downstairs. He was able to join us for Thanksgiving. I am so thankful it wasn't worse than it was and that he is ok today. He has complete movement in his arms, hands, and fingers. Here's just a couple pictures of him bandaged up.
Things like this will make you really appreciate what you have. I was fearful to drive for awhile and much more careful about things. That part is behind us and I am just thankful to have him with me.
