An Update, Tagged and Bing!


1. So, first the update:

Gabriella (and therefore mommy) is doing really well! Her face is looking great. Just in the last 2 days, it seems to have really healed up and we are ready to start putting the Mederma on it to make sure no scarring occurs. Her chest is going to take longer since it was worse. I also think having to keep it bandaged up is making it take longer. Her face was exposed to the air and that really seems to have sped it along. But, we will follow doctor's orders. I don't want it rubbing on her clothes anyway since it's still pretty raw. Saturday was the last day we had to take her in for cleaning,etc so we are very happy that is behind us.

Thanks again for everyone who's been checking in on her(and me!).

It does not seem to get her down at all, kids are just so resilient.

I am so relieved. Glad to hear your good news. Rich says she will be fine and heal well with 2nd degree burns.

You are totally right--she is acting like nothing is wrong. She is going along her merry way in the diaper box and all. Some ol' beautiful and wonderful Gabriella!

Keep your chin up Mom--she is doing great!
