    Jay Leno’s Doctor Gives Status Update; Comedian’s Kind Gesture Catches the Attention of Staff

    Published on

    The doctor who is treating comedian Jay Leno says that Leno will recover fully from the severe burns he sustained Saturday while tinkering in his garage in Burbank, California, despite having “elements of nerve damage.”

    According to TMZ, Leno, 72, told the publication that he was repairing a clogged fuel line in his 1907 White Steam Car. First, a fuel leak caused gasoline to spray on his face and hands. Then there was a spark, a tiny explosion, and Leno caught fire.

    Leno, the former host of “The Tonight Show” on NBC, was taken by the Burbank Fire Department authorities to the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital in Los Angeles on Saturday.

    According to Dr. Peter Grossman on Wednesday, Leno had “significant burns to his face and hands” in addition to his chest. He has also undergone one operation and has another one planned, according to Fox News.

    According to Grossman, Leno’s first procedure was “surgical excision and grafting.”

    According to Inside Edition, the doctor stated, “He’s had skin grafts that are not his own, meaning the skin we have from a skin bank or a donor; that’s what we do as a first stage.”

    “He did well with that surgery. He is in good spirits today,” Grossman said, according to Fox News, noting that the burns were “deep second degree” and possibly third degree.”

    “Burn injuries are progressive and dynamic,” the doctor said. “It’s hard to predict what the final outcome will be at this stage in the game. Currently, there’s elements of nerve damage.”

    But Grossman added, “I do anticipate him making a full recovery. Whether there will be remnants of this injury is still way too early to tell.”

    According to Yahoo, Grossman described Leno as a patient who is “remarkably kind and engaging.” According to the doctor, Leno gave out cookies to kids receiving treatment at the hospital on Wednesday.

    “He’s walking around and he’s cracking jokes. I can tell you that he’s incredibly kind to our nursing staff. He’s very compliant. He’s very appreciative of everybody here and really an ideal patient,” Grossman said.

    “We’re very happy to have him as part of our team,” the doctor said, according to Fox News.

    Grossman called Leno “a gentleman who really doesn’t want to make a big deal of this. He wants to get back to work; that’s what he does. I had to tell him that he needs to step back a bit and that these things take time.” CONTINUE READING…
