65-year-old Bob Andres is one step closer to getting home after spending 165 days in our Paul and Carol David Foundation Burn Institute. He came to Akron Children’s after a fire in his Youngstown home, where his dog, Suzi, woke Bob and his brother up and saved their lives. Bob suffered 40% burns all over his body and had pneumonia twice during his stay.
Despite his complications, he made a big impression on his doctors and nurses who called him “Miracle Bob” and cheered him on as he headed off to the next step of his journey: rehab, where he will learn to walk again. Good luck “Miracle Bob!”
