I recently brought some of my succulents it into the summer sunshine- and then fell asleep in the sun for several hours. I not only sunburnt myself- but a few of my plants pretty badly as well. I have attached a picture of a sunburnt succulent that I need advice on saving. I have some of the leaves from this plant currently rooting but would like to save the big one too. Thanks a bunch!

Hi and Welcome!
I suggest removing all the damaged leaves so that they don't attract fungal rot. Keep the plant in a well-lit place, but out of direct sun until it has recovered. Make sure that the container you are growing it in has plenty of drainage holes, and don't let the soil get soggy.
