Burn injuries continue to be a significant problem in the United States and they are second to motor vehicle accidents as the leading cause of accidental death. Learn more in this post and maybe prevent an accident.
We will try to bring you personal wellness tips to help reduce your stress and risk of injury or illness. This month we focus on the holidays: Shopping, wrapping, baking, planning, spending, hosting, cleaning, Elf-on-the Shelf-ing, decorating, donating……giving. With all of this outgoing energy, we need to manage the “fuel”. What we can miss is that no one enjoys it if it is at the sacrifice of mom’s (or dad’s) joy. All year we give of ourselves and we get to the end of the year and it seems we have one final epic push that leaves us feeling exhausted and unappreciated.
Every drop of kindness has a ripple effect.
You never know how far reaching each ripple might be.
In his years as a surgeon, Dr. Gayken has had to make difficult split second decisions that save limbs and lives of the patients in his care. He is very talented but that’s only part of his magical powers. He has the kindest heart as well. Dr. Gayken is a humble family man who experienced skin grafting himself as a patient nearly 20 years ago. He knows the pain all too well. He knows the emotional toll. We are so thankful for his partnership.
