Tonight Guenna burned her hand on the wall heater in our bedroom. Since she has started walking she can get everywhere very quickly. We had not noticed that the heaters got that hot, but we found out the hard way. After calling the doctor they told us to take her into the emergency room. Jenni took her in and my mom (Nana Joan) met her there.
The burn is across her palm in three long stripes the width of her palm and finger is the longest one and then other burns across all her fingers and up her pinky. It has made several long blisters and one that is pretty big. They are getting her bandaged up to protect it.
I am so glad that we have access to medical care, a hospital, phones to call the doctor and family to help out.
The first doctor seemed to think we should take her to Harborview tonight to have her checked out by the burn specialists but the second thought they could take care of it there, follow up with her doc tomorrow and go from there. Please be praying with us that it will heal fast and she can be back to normal soon. We’ll keep you posted about what we hear from the doctor tomorrow, hoping we don’t have to make a special trip to another hospital tomorrow!
