Well me and Greg always knew that Sean would have many trips to the ER but I was hoping it wouldn't be for awhile. Well before I start the story I admit that it is all my fault I thought Sean could not get into a Thermos but I was wrong. So we were over at our friends house for FHE and Greg and BJ were drinking this south American drink that you slowly add a little more hot water to this mug and sip on it. So the Thermos was sitting in the middle of the room when Sean got a hold of it. I looked back to see Sean trying to get out of the chair and throwing the Thermos up over his shoulder and low and behold he starts screaming. So luckily Greg was there and picked him while we took off his shirt and starting running cold water over his shoulder and Sean is screaming and crying. Well of course he started to get blisters and we could tell right away this was serious, so we packed up the kids and drove straight to the ER. We got into the ER right away where we sat for a couple of hours. Sean was fine as long as you did not touch his burn but if you came close he started to cry. I must say this boy has a high pain tolerance. I would of been screaming the whole time. So because we love drugs we got him some Morphine which was a shot and I think that hurt more than them cleaning up his burn and putting a dressing on it. So we went and saw the burn doctor the next day where she proceeded to tell me I have to now be my child's own burn nurse, which entails 1-soaking his shoulder for 10 mins 2- scrubbing his shoulder 3-putting medicine on it 4- re bandage the burn. Or my other choice was to have him go to surgery and be put under and they would clean it and put cavader skin over his burn. Well luckily for me Sean has an amazing pain tolerance and did really well on the first day of me and Greg trying to be burn nurses. So we will continue this for the next week and then hopefully go back and have the doctor tell us it looks great and healing well. So keep Sean in your prayers. The burn is from his right nipple up to the top of his shoulder. Sean got a bear at the ER which has helped us to show him what were going to be doing to him, so now its his best friend. We call Sean's bandages his batman shield which is a life saver when were trying to put the bandages back on. I hope you enjoy the pictures of his shield.
