The day before I had to take Mabel to the doctors because she had a rash around the burn on her tummy. They said it was fine and just an allergic reaction to something.
When we took her to Broomfield’s the doctors had a look at her burns, but it was the rash that was concerning them. They admitted her into the hospital that night and it was the scariest heart-wrenching thing ever. I stayed at the hospital with her but hardly got any sleep.

In the morning we were told that she will have to stay in for another 24 hours, but at lunchtime when they checked her burns and rash we were told she could go home. Her rash had gone down and it was the perfect outline of the dressing she had on. It was an allergic reaction to something in the glue of the dressing. Her thigh also seemed to be healing well but her arm had got worse and we just had to wait it out to see if surgery is needed.
Since then we have had more appointments but the good news is on Thursday 9th April Mabel was left with only a little tiny bandage on her arm. Everything is healing so well and fingers crossed this last little bit is doing the same.
I also had good news in that the deep burns have now started to heal and I can feel some pain. I will be left with a scar but as long as my little girl is ok, I am happy.
