Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray thee Lord, my soul to keep. Angels watch me through the night, and wake me with the morning light. Amen.
In just a split second, accidents happen. Such was the case yesterday when baby Lucy reached her little hand under the treadmill belt as John was running, while the kids played in the same room. So scary. She has a pretty severe sheer/burn on 2 of her fingers and and palm of her hand. She's going to be fine...just treating it with a prescription creme, antibiotics, and watching for infection as the layers of skin try to heal. Dad, on the other hand...it will take a bit longer for the feelings of guilt to subside. Poor guy.
God Bless Lucy. God Bless her dad too.

ouch. Many prayers for Lucy and for Dad. It is awful when they hurt themselves and we think it was our fault.

How precious she looks...She'll bounce back so quickly, kids are like that. I'm sure John will heal soon too...it happens to all of us.

She looks like such an angel. They can move so quick at that age, John shouldn't feel bad, but I know how that guilt can be. I am sure she will bounce back quick and be abck into everything!
