Emergency room vist AGAIN for Nic...Poor baby!

Oh it was a bad day yesterday...I was in the shower (getting ready for work) and Nic was out with Grandpa Artie and he was helping him move things since it was big garbage pick up the next day. We had a fire going in the yard to burn anything that could burn rather than throw it on the road. Nic was "helping" and before grandpa could see him Nic reached down to pick up a VERY hot piece of metal and burned his hand bad. All I heard was "CARRIE" grandpa was calling me telling me Nic got burned. I quick threw something on and ran out there to Nic who was just screaming. We had to force him to run it under cold water. He did NOT like that at all. Grandpa called grandma who was a nurse back in the day, and she come over. I grabbed the ice pack because he was pulling so much out of the water I thought it would break open the blisters so I just let him hold his ice pack on it. He wanted me to hold him but he once I picked him up he wanted down. We rushed out (I called work told them I would be late) and went to the emergency room. He screamed all the way (I'm lucky I didn't get picked up for speeding) once we got their they took him right in. Had a hard time looking at it since he didn't want to remove the ice pack from it. The skin was black and it was on all fingers and part of his palm :( The doc things his fingerprints will no longer be there and they won't know what degree burns until today. They wrapped it up with pain reliever and sent us home. He has to go back today to see what degree burns and than we see where we go and what we do from there. We have company coming today, I still have not cleaned, and I'm just bummed out hoping Nic will be ok. It's his left hand so he didn't have problems playing on the computer today. Here are a few pics of him (now feeling a little better) We have him on Ibuprofen/Tylenol mix so he gets meds every 2 hours for the pain...per doctors advice.

Well better get cleaning. What the heck happened to larger font? AND COLOR!? It's not on my post today! GRRR I HATE new things! well I have pics but it's not letting me add them! What's going on?

Oh Bless his little heart. It sound so horrible and I cannot imagine how badly that hurt. He looks so cute sitting at the computer. Keeping him (all of you) in my thoughts..I hope once the doctor can re-evaluate you find it isn't as bad as it sounds.
