But when I woke up on that first morning, I was simply known as one of the most badly burned children the good folks at that hospital had ever seen. If you’ve spent any time at all on a burn ward, you know that no matter how fine a facility or competent and caring a staff, it’s not an easy place for a kid to be. The Shriners Hospital undoubtedly saved my life, but the hospital stay itself was incredibly difficult. You see, I was in an environment populated by children who were in unimaginable pain and horribly disfigured.
In that first full glimpse of my injuries, I’m sure I didn’t even appear human to my mother and father, much less look like their child. BECAUSE SO MUCH OF MY SKIN had been burned away, one of the first things the doctors had to do was graft new skin onto the raw muscle, meat, and tendon left exposed. Fortunately, those doctors would be able to use skin from the roughly 20 percent of my body that hadn’t been burned to graft onto the parts where the skin had come off entirely. That was a blessing, because by using the few patches of good skin I had on my stomach, the back of my head, and the diaper-protected area, they’d avoid the problems of tissue rejection that occur when an organ (and skin is the body’s largest organ) from one person is transplanted in another.
