Poor Carla - 2nd degree burns
Our poor little Carla. A pot of near boiling water near head level on an outdoor BBQ, fell on Carla (she didn't grab it). Maria rushed off to the hospital in a taxi for emergency treatment. They put her to sleep and cleaned her. Second degree burns, which shouldn't leave any scaring. She was in hospital for two nights. I found out the next morning, when I came down from climbing Cayambe. She is doing just fine at home as I write this.
After discussing our virtue of the week in class, Compassion, the kids related all their past accidents: falling down stairs, fingers caught in doors, banging heads on something, and falling into windows!
