My Accident- Burn


Recently I had an accident at home. I was cooking and the pan I was using didn’t have the best of handles. I was boiling some meat and took it out. My 1 year old daughter was in there and I asked my 3 older children to get her out of there,and I would be in there in a minute. I went to drain the boiling water out of the pan and some went in the sink and most went down the front of both my legs and feet. I throw the pan in the sink and yell HOT! I then turn and look down at my legs, I was wearing jeans, they were steaming and felt like the heat was increasing. So, when realized this, I stripped out of my jeans. I looked down and only my left leg had gotten hurt. My top of my left knee and the outer side of my lower leg. The lower leg had peeled the skin off but the knee was just red and hot. At that moment the knee hurt worse than the lower leg. My husband who was in bed and was about to get up to get ready to go to work came flying in the kitchen to see what was wrong. My children looked with fear in their eyes. I explained what happen and then started to cry. It hurt! I hobbled to the couch and sat down and we looked at it. I didn’t want to go to the hospital. It was almost time for him to go to work and I just didn’t want to. But, I changed my mind and we ended up going to the ER. When we got there they temporarily wrapped it. They checked my vital signs and temp and all. Everything was normal even my blood pressure, which was amazing since now my  whole leg hurt bad, On the scale of 1-10 it was a 10. After the checking all this stuff I sat in the waiting room. I was called back to a room where it was hard to walk to but I did. My pain was a 7. We sat in there for 4 hours before anyone came in there. Not once, did I fuss or complain or yell. They got in there and asked what happened and I explained. Then  they unwrapped it and told me I had received 1st degree burns on my knee and 2nd degree on my leg said they would scar. They then gave me a shot of morphine and proceeded to cut off the loose skin. Then they put medicine on it and wrapped it. Came back with prescription  Then they said the would give us dinner vouchers since we had been in there so long and been patient and hadn’t cussed them out, which I wouldn’t do anyways, and so my husband, my baby girl , and I got to eat a free meal. It was more than enough food too. I could have been upset several times but I chose not to. I could have been mean but I chose not to. I could have blamed God and cursed Him, but I didn’t chose to. Instead I praised God for all that He had saved me from. He saved me from it being my baby or other children. He saved it from both my legs and feet. He saved it from being bad all over. I look at it like this, I went through this for a reason and it might just have been so I can relate to someone else’s hurt. But, either way I am so thankful and am praising God. You might think I’m crazy or odd but that’s your opinion. I know that God is real and He surrounds me daily and that I am thankful.
