Chloe has 2nd degree burns...
on her right hand and arm....all the way to her little elbow. I feel just horrible. I asked my DD, Christine if she wanted to cook supper or fold laundry. She chose to cook supper. Everything was done...corn muffins were sitting on the back burner cooling. the front burner was hot from mashed potatoes...Christine went to the laundry room, Chloe came in the kitchen and pulled her a chair up to the stove and decided she wanted a muffin. She burnt her arm on the hot eye.
I know I can't go back and fix it, but I just wish I had been in the kitchen. Her cry was tragic, she hurt so bad...all the way to the emergency room she was just shaking. She cried "it's just not fair" over and over.
Tylenol with Codeine must be really good pain medicine, her voice is almost gone from talking SO much. She is high as a kite now. We have to keep her bandaged for 5 days. She has little blisters on her finger tips two places on her palm and all along the underside of her arm.
Pray for my little baby. I hope she isn't going to be hurting to bad tomorrow.
