Family member Christian Power says Henry’s mother Kate is staying nearby. “She visits the hospital every day but, Kate is not allowed direct access to Henry due to the massive risk of infection,” says Christian. “She has a speaker set up in the room so she can play him music and talk to him, but she can’t go in.”
Christian says the recovery will be a long one. “Henry is undergoing numerous surgeries to repair the damage,” he says. “Sometimes a couple a week. Only his face and his feet have been spared the burns.
“At this stage it looks like he will be in a coma throughout the Christmas season. We are all taking things day to day and hoping that at some point he will be well enough to come out of the coma and begin his physical and emotional recovery.”
