She was napping. I ironed then placed it backwards on the scales to cool. Twenty minutes later she wakes up Sam changes her diaper and helps get her ready to go out for lunch and do some family shopping. He puts her and down and asks did I have her. I said I did. I went into the bathroom to brush my hair and she followed. She was standing right beside me. She was right there. Then she cried. Sam said she only cried long enough for him to get from one room in the house to where we were but I cried the whole rest of the day. I cry almost every time I change her wound dressing, diaper, clothes, when I give her a bath...almost every time I see it. I have apogolized to her over and over. When I'm changing her bandages and when she looks at it she says, "Uh-Oh" and continues playing with whatever is nearby until I finish. I think she's forgotten about it.
We immediatley took her to her peditrician where she put silvadene creme on it and wrapped it with codan. She then gave us instructions on how to care for her leg at home and promised that she'd be okay.
Her leg is healing nicely and I can't wait for the bandages to be gone for good. We had a follow up appointment last week and we have another one this week so that we can get cleared for going to the beach (which by the way will be her very first beach trip!).
Her leg hasn't stopped her from being the busy girl that she is and I'm so glad and very thankful that it wasn't any worse than it was. Thank you to those that prayed for little Caroline's healing! We are on the mend!
I can say that I defintely have learned my lesson and that our iron has a new spot for cooling.
Her boo boo leg.
