Well, Patrick is doing better. I had to change the bandages and clean the burn last night. Notice the pink wrap. Maggie had this for her knee injury, so it was what we used. Thank goodness for 3/4 length sleeves. :) It was harder for me than him. As I was washing the area with soap and gauze, I kept asking him if I was hurting him. He was so good and told me, "I'm fine, Mom." We got it all cleaned up and put new bandages on. I am so thankful that most of the water landed on the counter top and not on him. This is so difficult to deal with. My own child doing this horrible thing to his own brother. I need to comfort the one and want to strangle the other!! I woke up yesterday and couldn't turn my head at all to the right. Went to see my chiropractor and got some eletric stim on the area and a nice adjustment. I go back today and tomorrow for more of the same. I can move my head now without too much pain. It is amazing how stress affects your body. I couldn't even knit yesterday. I am going to go now and try to work on a sock. Happy knitting.

I'm so proud of how courageous and brave Patrick has been. And I agree, stress is a terrible thing for our bodies. Take care of yourself - and I hope you are both feeling much better soon.
