It has been a crazy couple weeks. We are just trying to finish up with Ricky's tonsil/adenoidectomy recovery when we had another little complication.
Stas' guardian angels have to work tirelessly to keep him safe...no doubt.
Boiling water had just been poured in a cup when Stas decided to open the fridge and freezer...a favorite thing to do. When we went to tie the door closed he zipped over and pulled the mug down on to his face, neck, chest and arm. I wasn't home, got a phone call telling me he was on his way via paramedics to the Burn Center at Regions Hospital. Hysterically I traveled there to find my very sad boy who was needing all four extremities bound to keep him from trying to tear the pain off of his face.
After a while, the Fentanyl, Pat-a-Cake, and Itsy Bitsy Spider kicked in and we were good to go. We spent the night in the hospital, not knowing how he would handle it and because his eyes were swollen and they wanted to keep an eye on them.
He slept through the night. Praise God!
We will be seen in the Burn clinic in a week to change dressings. He has to keep Bacitracin on his face at all times heavily. He has dressings on his arm and chest.
It is amazing how quickly the skin is healing. He looks so much better now then he was 8 hours before now, 8 hours before that, etc....
And one other thing.....the person who was with him when the burn happened is WONDERFUL!!! I'm sure they feel awful and if ", etc.... Stas is always one step away from an accident. It seems like it is a matter of time...always. So, as they said in the burn center, "this is nothing, tell her we see it all the time and this is nothing compared to what we see." We LOVE YOU!!!
Thank you for your outpouring of prayers. You are all awesome people in our lives, and the life of Stas. I thank God for you. Keep praying.
