Gregory suffered burns to his back and the back of his arms when he fell into a grilling pit at an outdoor barbeque. Gregory was only hospitalized as an inpatient for a short period of time but he had numerous outpatient visits to our burn clinic. He has to undergo at least twice weekly painful dressing changes at home and at the clinic. These dressing are difficult for anyone, especially a three year old. Gregory has shown great bravery during his clinic visits and as time has progressed, he has begun to heal more and more. Gregory has gotten to the point where he now walks out of the clinic with a smile on his face.
