Today has been the worst day of my life.
I left Riley with mum (who we are staying with for Christmas) and was just about to jump in the shower when I heard him screaming. I ran out of the bathroom and find him with mum, leg red and blistering cos he pulled a kettle of water over himself.
I ran him into the shower and mum got Matt, we kept the cold water running and I rang the ambulance who were here quickly, and took us to Canberra Hospital.
My poor little man. As soon as we took him out of the shower he started screaming and he was in so much pain.
He was given painkillers nasally, which did nothing, them the doctor had to try to find a vein to put a drip in so more drugs could be given.
The surgeon came to look and thankfully the burns are not severe, and it helped that we got him into the shower so quickly. Silver dressing got applied and we have to take him to get the dressings changed in 3 days, which we will do in Brisbane.
I've never felt so upset, and angry and helpless in my life.
He is so lucky that it was only his leg, nothing on his stomach or hands or genitals. It could have been so much worse.
He's eating and drinking, but we don't know how much of that is due to the painkillers. We have just given him some Nurofen and bought some PainStop which has codeine in it if he is really bad overnight.
My poor, brave little guy. I don't ever want to hear him in so much pain, ever again.

That's so terrible the poor little guy.. Accidents happen, don't be angry with yourself. It's horrible to feel so helpless when your child is in so much pain.. I hope he has an ok night and isn't up too much with the pain.
