Here are Matt’s latest updates:
Amanda's out of surgery and everything went perfect!!! They were able to remove the majority of her burned tissue and have even started grafting procedures. This surgery was performed several days earlier than normal due to Amanda's youth and excellent physical health. She is a real fighter and is progressing ahead of schedule.
Her next surgery is scheduled for late next week at this point Kyle is recovering well and is scheduled for skin grafting surgery on Friday.
Over the day or so please consider no news good news so we will likely not post again unless something changes for the next several days. Thank you all again for the support and prayers.
