Grammies, you're going to want to quit reading now.
Today we had an accident =( Our first one that required an emergency trip to the doctor's office (not the hospital, THANKFULLY). Before today, I would have bet you a good amount of money that our first disaster would have involved Amos...but it didn't.
This afternoon Audrey learned that fire is hot. The hard way. Sweetie baby pulled up on our gas fireplace, which unfortunately, was on. =( She cried and cried. She cried so long I couldn't help but join her. I held it together while I called Eric and asked him to call the doctor for me, but I lost it when I called a friend to watch the kids while we went to the doctor. I don't think I have ever called a friend crying before. It was horrible.
During all of this crying, I knew she was fine, but to see her in so much pain was really hard. Blisters quickly formed on each of her finger tips and the palm of her hand. Second degree burns. The doctor said that they were shallow, and none of them opened, so she should heal just fine. We just need to be very careful to prevent infection.
By tonight Audrey was back to her normal self, happy and silly, plus a trendsetting "mitten." Amos and Maggie were so lucky to get to hang out with Stephanie and Sydney during all of this, and they thought it was a fun adventure. They were pretty worried about their little sister though. They couldn't wait to see her when they got home.
