MY RUIN Frontwoman To Undergo Fourth Surgery

Guitarist Mick Murphy of MY RUIN — boyfriend of the group's lead vocalist, Tairrie B., who was "seriously injured" in a car accident in late September — has issued the following update on Tairrie's condition:

"Tairrie asked me to post a blog here with an update on her operation yesterday since so many of you have been writing in with positive messages and concerns.

"While we thought this Friday the 13th was going to be the third and final surgery, the doctor felt that she was not ready for the graft as planned so instead she took Tairrie into surgery and pulled together a good portion of the skin on her arm and sewed what she could which reduced the size of the open wound quite a bit. She explained to us that she would like to try and save as much of the skin on B's arm as possible and wanted the grafted area to be as small as it can be. While this is great news, it also extends the process and it is now even more painful than it was before. Tairrie is set for her 4th and final surgery (hopefully) this Wednesday, October 18th. In the meantime, I did my first dressing on her arm today with the new stitches which make her look a little like Sally from 'A Nightmare Before Christmas' which is oddly fitting considering Halloween is coming up. It's pretty crazy seeing the transformation of the wound as we go through this together. Tonight she is resting as comfortably as can be expected.

"We are documenting everything so that when she is healed she can write about the whole process and include photos from start to finish which she feels will be therapeutic. She has been going through all of this physically and mentally but visually she still has not seen the actual wound. I think it will be better for her to look back on it all after the hardest part has passed rather than in the moment because the wound is intense.

"Thanks again to everyone for your prayers, thoughts and kind words at this time. She feels them all and is doing her best to recover from this terrible accident. Her courage and positive attitude towards this situation are impressive, admirable and inspirational to say the least."

MY RUIN's recent U.K. and West Coast dates were in support of their latest CD, "The Brutal Language".
