Copied from the gofundme page, .....

Update 3: 

Steve was in surgery Monday to clean burnt skin off areas. He has 2nd degree burns on arms, chest, face, back, neck, scalp and right foot. Approximately 38% of the second degree burns are transforming into 3rd degree which is not uncommon we are told.
He has developed a lung infection (which is expected after something like this) and it's turning into pneumonia.

They are hoping the antibiotics will take over and help this.

The plan is back into surgery today and start skin grafting for the hands.

He is heavily sedated so they ask that only immediate family visit for now, less chance of infection spreading that way.

Ongoing updates will be provided and can be found on Steve's CaringBridge site: 

https://www.caringbridge.org/public/stevethompson57

Please note that the tributes made on the caringbridge site help maintain the website as a free resource for Steve and his family as well as many others; they do not go directly to Steve or his family. I have had a few people reach out and ask about this so I wanted to clarify!

Also, as you can see from the update, Steve has a long road of procedures ahead of him and is still facing complications rather than truly even beginning his road to recovery. The family continues to prepare for extensive medical costs and we will continue campaign for the support they need! Thank you everyone for all you have already done, and I encourage all of us to continue praying, funding and supporting this cause!

 

Today's update sounds like they are holding off on some grafting, possibly to get hold of the lung injection?
