hi there, I just wanted to pop in here and ask all you praying folks out there to offer one up for our little Kaiella.
I ran downstairs Friday to get the phone, and she decided to be a "big girl" and get her bag of goldfish crackers from the back of the counter all by herself, I had just poured myself a hot cup of tea and placed it back there where I thought it was safe from little hands. She ended up with hot tea dumped all over her little arm and chest. Luckily it didn't have time to soak through the chest part of her sweater before I got it off of her but her little arm wasn't as fortunate and she has some 2nd degree burns between her wrist and shoulder. The doctors at children's hospital say she should heal well and we just have to go back every second day to get the dressings changed this week. But she is pretty "ouchie" and Tylenol seems to just barely take the edge off. My heart is so sad for her, all I an do is give lots of extra love and lots of my time. and it is one of those times that I can't even beat myself up about, because I am not sure what I could have done any different... other than putting my cup inside the cupboard! no, seriously though, We are reeally careful, we don't let anyone sit with the kids or hold them while drinking coffee or tea, we keep them out of the kitchen when we are cooking and always boil on the back burners. Please please please take extra caution around your babies when it comes to hot stuff, you just can't be too careful.
Thanks for listening and thanks for your prayers, I will hopefully get back to work and returning my emails after this weekend. For now my attentions are all here at home. take care all :)
