Dwight_Yeast: TommyymmoT: From Wiki:Barker spent more than 11 weeks in hospitals and burn centers. Addled by medications, Barker asked how Baker and Still were doing for two months, never remembering the answer. Barker had 16 surgeries: blood transfusions that lasted 4-8 hours and numerous skin grafts. "There were times when they were talking about amputating my foot because I didn't have enough skin on my body for my grafts," he said. Barker also developed, made worse by the intense guilt he felt knowing Still wasn't supposed to be on the plane. On September 21, Dr. Fred Mullins, medical director of the Burn Center reported that Barker sustained second and third degree burns on his lower body and torso and was expected to fully recover within a year.DJ AM, who survived that flight with fewer injuries than Barker ended up falling off the wagon and OD'ing less than a year later.And Barker was convinced that he had to stop being a vegetarian to help his body bulk up and recover.So, yeah, if I were him I'd never consider getting on an airplane again./they could always Mr. T him.
