Hero of the Month Girl

Five-year-old Brookelynn fell into a hot coal campfire and suffered burns to her left hand and fingers, legs, thighs, and calves. She has been very brave, enduring painful dressing changes, debridements, and skin grafts (from her torso area). Brookelynn reacted and coped with many tears, but did a great job holding still and did her best to cooperate with the hospital staff. She remained playful even after having to adapt her play around her bandages. Brookelynn will have more follow-up appointments and occupational therapy to regain the use of her hand.
