Despite suffering third-degree burns on his head, arm, foot and back, the boy was in remarkably good spirits Thursday.

“That’s him, that’s his personality, he is by far the happiest baby ever,” said Sheila Chase, Easton’s grandmother.

“We’re hoping that the surgery goes well and we can finally get on the good road to recovery,” said Andrew Rosen, Easton’s father.

The family was cooking funnel cakes when the oil exploded onto Easton.

Andrew grabbed the flaming pan and tossed it out the door, but not before his arm was burned as well.

“I’m thankful he didn’t get any in his eye or we’d be dealing with a whole different situation right now,” he said.

Easton visited with his family Thursday through a window at the hospital, just hours before he was due to undergo surgery.

“To see him today now, it makes me see good, look at him, look at him blowing kisses,” said Vivian Rosen, Easton’s grandmother.

“Going through everything that he’s been through, so far to have him be smiling and waving, it’s nice to see him like that,” Andrew said.

Doctors are confident they can prevent major scaring and his hair will grow back. His first surgery is scheduled for Friday morning.

Easton’s father said the family will no longer cook with the boy in the kitchen. The family said it hopes others can learn from their experience.

Custom Auto Interior – 3 Reasons to Consider Seat Re-Covering

Having your car’s seats re-done/re-covered is a fairly large custom auto interior project, but even so, it is generally reasonably price and well worth doing. There are three primary reasons for having your car’s seats re-done/re-covered, and we’ll cover them in brief, below:

1 – If you want to update your vehicle and give it a fresh look, the seats are generally the biggest, most eye catching part of the interior of the car. If you can only afford to have one thing done, this will make the biggest visible difference for the money spent.

2 – If you’re restoring a classic car and want to return it to original “off the showroom floor” condition, you’ll almost certainly need the services of a specialist. That’s a big, intricately detailed job, and not one that many people can do on the fly. Again, the seats are a major part of the restoration of the interior, and as such, should be a priority.

3 – If you’re taking advantage of existing damage to effect a change. Maybe you’re not looking to drastically alter the look of your car’s interior, or maybe you don’t want to change a thing, but if you’ve got damage and want to fix the vehicle up and extend its useful life, then re-padding and re-covering the seats will certainly help you accomplish your goal!

Remember that re-padding and re-covering your seats is NOT the same thing as having seat covers installed. Seat covers merely go over what’s already there. What we’re talking about is having the old upholstery removed and replaced/updated with new. Totally different thing!

This is but one of a great number of services that a good custom auto interior specialist can perform for you.…
