Ouch!

I called the doctor this morning to make sure we didn't need to put anything on Ella's blisters since a couple of them popped over night, but they wanted us to go ahead and bring her in to make sure that they weren't infected. So, David took her in at 4:15 this afternoon and Dr. Shori said that they look OK right now, but she wants us to clean her hand several times a day and apply an ointment...and she wants to see her again next week because one of the blisters (between her ring finger and her middle finger) is on a joint and apparently that is the worst place for kids to get burned because if the skin heals the wrong way they can have all sorts of issues down the road.

Ella is handling the situation like a trooper, but I still hate the fact that I wasn't there in time to prevent this whole situation from happening in the first place!


Luckily she did not burn the palm of her hand, but if you look closely you can see the three blisters on the tips of her fingers (middle, ring and pinky) and then the big nasty one at the bottom of her ring finger.

  5. I want everyone to know that I do NOT think it is Kaylane's fault! Ella and Eden are going to get scratched up, banged up, and (apparently) burnt while growing up. Just part of it. (Also not my fault that Ella tripped and scratched both of her knees on Friday when I was watching her. Just sayin.) :)

    I figure the emotional scars that come from growing up will far out weigh the physical ones. LOL JK

  6. Poor sweet girl...Growing up can be hard! Accidents are no fun, but that's why they call them accidents.

  7. Oh my, poor thing! I think that as painful as it is to injure yourself like that it has got to be even more painful to be a mom/dad seeing your little girl injured. The good news is that it will heal, and she probably won't even remember this when she grows up!
