|Ivy's left thigh|
On my way home with Chaz I get a call on my cell and Charles was calling from inside an ambulance. My heart just dropped as I anxiously waited to hear who was hurt and if they are okay. I could hear Ivy screaming in the background and I could hear she was in terrible pain. Because he couldn't get a hold of me he had to get a neighbor to watch our kids so he can ride in the ambulance with her. I felt so bad! I only had my cell phone off for 15 minutes.
Before the gym I had put food in a crockpot. Since it was gonna take awhile I just pushed it back towards the wall in a corner and told the kids to stay away from it. Ivy wasn't in the room and didn't hear me. I never boiler water on the front burners and I always push anything that's hot toward the back wall on the counter. Well, she made herself a bowl while I was gone and before Charles could see her. She sat down to eat and baby Caleb crawled up on her lap and made it spill. That's how the burn happened. Charles pulled her pants off and saw the skin boiling and peeling away so he called 911.
She was screaming for so long they finally had to put anti-anxiety meds in her I.V. and gave her lots of pain meds. She relaxed but still felt pain, just not as bad. She started getting a little goofy saying funny things. In this picture she is showing her daddy her bracelets and telling him how expensive they were. She started being so cute once she was relaxed. She doesn't remember any of it though.
She was released last night but is to come back tonight to have it all looked at again. Thankfully it only turned out to be a second degree burn but they still won't completely know the damage until it heals. Burns keep damaging for awhile. They gave her a type of bandage over her leg that falls off once the wound heals and it'll take about 3 weeks. Poor Ivy. I'm going out to buy a baby gate so if anything is cooking I can keep any kids out of the kitchen. It's just too scary with little ones.
|Ivy happy once she got medicine through her I.V.|
