OLI AFTER BURNON SATURDAY MORNING, OUR 9 MONTH OLD GRANDSON, OLIVER HAD AN ENCOUNTER WITH THE GAS FIREPLACE AND BURNED THE PALM OF HIS LEFT HAND… ONCE THE FAMILY HYSTERIA SUBSIDED, OLIVER WAS TAKEN TO THE ER FOR INSPECTION AND TREATMENT… BOY…. THINGS HAVE CHANGED SINCE WE HAD LITTLE ONES…. OF COURSE…. THE FAMILY HYSTERIA WAS THERE BUT THE TREATMENT IN THOSE DAYS WAS DIFFERENT….. OUR CHILDREN’S BURNS WERE TREATED WITH COLD WATER….. A FEW DROPS OF ALOE VERA JUICE FROM THE PLANT GROWING ON OUR KITCHEN WINDOW AND THEN WE WRAPPED THE BURN WITH SOME GAUZE AND GAVE OUR BABY HALF OF AN ADULT ASPIRIN….. THESES DAY’S ARE DIFFERENT……ONCE THE ER BANDAGED THE FIRST AND SECOND DEGREE BURN THEY ARRANGED A MONDAY MORNING APPOINTMENT WITH A SPECIAL BURN THERAPY UNIT…. EVENTUALLY…… OUR SWEET LITTLE GRANDSON WAS SENT HOME WITH A SPECIAL KIND OF BLUE COLOURED CAST PROTECTING HIS LEFT HAND…..  CLICK ON THE PICTURE FOR A BETTER VIEW…… ISN’T HE A CUTIE…..
