    Default Tom Kasper hospitalized

    For those of you that know Tom Kasper, we had terrible storms roll thru here on Monday. These storms left the greater Chicago area with out power for the last three days. Tom had set up a generator run run his kitchen appliances, for the last couple days. Well he decided to move it away from the house a little, with the help of my brother in-law it was moved. Shortly after moving it, sputtered. Just as Tom approached to see whats going on, he bent down to see whats going on, and noticed it was leaking fuel. At the very moment he did this it blew up, throwing about three gallon of gasoline into the area, which ignited Tom. He knew his arm was on fire, and was a few feet from the river, he ran to the river, in total panic. The flames went out on him, but the flames were as tall as his garage roof, he then proceed to extinguish the fire. Only to realize he was burn much more than his arm. Toms entire side was burned, leg, chest, arm, neck, face, and most all the hair on his head. He was in shock, decided to drive to the hospital him self, this was Tuesday, he was released today. Tom has 2nd and 3rd degree burns on 40% of his body. His summer is done, as a result of this, he is looking at a long recovery period that extends past August/September. He should be able to make a complete recovery except for the burn scarring. Please say a prayer for him, as this the most painful type of injury. Sleek

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"
