  1. I’m glad he has hands now and is able to see. People who safed him after his accident must be happy that they kept him alive with 80% of body burn so he suffer more & more… this makes me cry. He is very strong….

  2. So happy they finally operated on someone who didn’t botch their suicide attempt or get shot in the face during an armed robbery! He looks great and deserves the opportunity more than the other two.
