The ER


Last night Brien got out of school early so we thought for dinner we would have a BBQ. Brien fired up the grill and all was going well. The kids were outside playing and having fun. Then it happened, Ian decided to ride his bike. He was trying to get on it when he feel off and hit the grill with his arm. At first we thought he hit his head on the grill, but there was no marks to be found as we brought him in side we saw that his arm had gotten burned. We ran it under cold water and skin started to blister. And as he screamed and cried he would rub off the skin. We knew it was a second degree burn so we went to the ER to make sure that it would be okay. We got there about 6:30 and left about 9:00, and this whole time Ian screamed and cried. I thought this would have speeded things up but it didn't. So now we just have to keep it clean and change his dressing often and in about a week we will go back for a follow up. This could have turned out so much worse then it did, so I am very thankful.

Burns are so scary - glad it was only 2nd degree and all that is required is dressing changes . . . with silvadene?

Ohh, poor little guy. I'm glad he's OK. (Oh, and poor parents too, it is nerve wrecking seeing your babies in pain.)
