News: Noah's Injury

This weekend we took part in the Turnberry garage sale at our friends house. They were selling cups of coffee, tea, and bottled water. On Saturday Noah happened to see a cup and decided to help himself, which to his horror was scolding hot coffee! He accidentally poured it down his chest and belly, and got burned pretty bad. We were able to cool the burn, and eventually get him to calm down. But there were blisters forming in places, and that made us and a few nurses that were there worried. We took him in to the ER and they looked at him. They prescribed him some stronger pain killers and a burn cream. They assured us that he would be okay, and that we did everything right. The doctor defined the burn as: superficial partial thickness.

On Monday Noah was looking great! You never would have guessed what had happened the day before seeing him running and jumping on things. We thought we would be up all night with him, but he slept pretty soundly throughout the night. You can keep his burns in your prayers though, as it still does cause him pain occasionally. You can also pray for us because his pain medication is making him super hyper active! He's just bouncing off the walls constantly!
