please say a prayer

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 :)

Awww!! If it's any comfort - I got HOT boiling water spilled all over my chest & tummy when I was little..in our cottage..high up the mountains....with NO electricy...and this was the kind of boiling water that you got by firing in the oven...which goes real real hot..the skin didn't look good for a while but now it's all gone...mom was so devastated...I still remember her soaking me all wet for a long long while spilling water all over the floor in our little cottage..it was our summerplace...so small..heh.. kicthen, livingroom & bedroom in one... no running water either but we had water from a well..ohwell...sorry for spilling all this, the memories just rushed back to me...anyways..I was fine and the skin slowly went back to normal after a year or so so I don't think it was THAT bad..just a very scary memory...hope your little one will be well soon!! :)

Aw, that stinks. I'll certainly pray for her. Good thing you thought fast and pulled the sweater off of her, the burns could have been much bigger!

My daughter had 2nd degree burns on her hand when she was 18 months old- stuck her hand in my mother's coffee cup! If it helps, her hands healed just fine, and fairly quickly too.

Christina said...

Well, I can't use the "at least she'll have immunity" reassurance. But I hope she recovers quickly. At least the stove wasn't on.

Kasie Sallee said...

I will definitely be praying for your little Sweetie. (((Hugs))) to you both!

It's always so hard to have our little ones in pain. Praying for a speedy recovery. And cuddles ALWAYS make it better!

Poor babe...prayers for some relief and for you too...peace...accidents happen! It's amazing what little hands can reach. A couple of weeks ago my little one ended up climbing our pantry, and hanging on to the top shelf, trying to get snacks!

momy4him said...

poor baby! i pray that she heals quickly. (((BIG HUGS)))

Victoria said...

My heart goes out to your little one! I will keep her in my prayers! It sounds like you are always mindful of your childrens' safety. It hurts our hearts as moms to let anything happen. (((Hugs))) to both of you!

mel said...

poor little sweetie! she is definitely in my prayers. It just amazes me how kids always find their way around everything we do to keep them safe. my youngest, zoe, is notorious for that. i pray that she is already on the mend. I am sure she is already feeling better from the extra love. it is amazing what that can do!

katie said...

Noel said...

she looks like she's recovering nicely. this happened to my dd when she was 10 months old and pulled a full cup of hot cocoa on herself. she healed up so quickly... no marks at all now!

praying for you all... still. :)
