Just Another Reason to Hate The Treadmill...

On Thursday of last week, the girls and I spent the morning at the pool with friends and then went over to one of our friend's house to have lunch. The kids played really well together and we were having a really fun time. I actually spent most of the time following Jules around because she is determined to go up everyone's stairs and she has NOT mastered coming down the stairs yet. I was worried about the wrong injury it turns out!
Around 1:00, I hear this LOUD scream coming from my friend's office. I know immediately that Jules is in some serious pain and I run in the room. I find Jules pinned underneath a running treadmill and the carpet. I am not really sure what happened after that...I am sure I threw children out of the way left and right to get to Jules and rescue her from her accident. She was hysterical and didn't calm down for a good 45 minutes of screaming...loud! The poor girl...I could not calm her and I knew she was in a lot of pain.
What had happened was that Jillian and her little friend must have gone into the office and turned it on. It wasn't going very fast, but fast enough that when Jules climbed on, it sent her to the back and then the belt just kept rubbing on her skin. I couldn't get her in to my doctor because she is out of town, so I just decided to take her in to the ER and make sure it was fine. I felt so nervous like they were going to pick me up for child abuse or something...she looked really bad! But, it just turns out that her side has 1st degree burns and a large burn on her inner knee was 2nd degree. So, here are some pics of my poor girl! We have been doing lots of cleaning of these burns and she HATES that part. Other than that, you would not know she was even hurt anymore! I am pretty sure that she will NEVER be a fan of the treadmill in her future...and who can blame her?

Her side and elbow
her side
her little knee...breaks my heart

her hospital name tag on her sweet little chubby foot

Mimi kept Jilly while we took Jules to the hospital, so Papaw came over to pick her up and give Jules some loving. Jules really knows how to milk it and get some sympathy. She had Papaw right in the palm of her hand!


We had to cover her bandages with her BabyLeggs because what 15 month old isn't going to pull that straight off? So, she is starting a new trend! And yes, she did put that necklace on herself...AND wore that bow (and only that bow) the entire time we were in the ER! We have priorities people. Just because you are in the hospital, it is no reason not to look your very best!



Finding comfort in food. Hopefully she won't get attacked by an elliptical machine because she just might need it when she is older if she keeps hauling that snack cup around 24/7!!




Her new trick...climbing onto her's and Jillian's chairs to turn off the TV.





And here is my girl at 6:15 pm fast asleep in my arms. She had such a long day with no nap and lots of screaming, that she just passed out!

Aw, poor baby! I hurt just looking at those photos! I hope she feels better soon. We had a treadmill at our house but just got rid of it since I worry about that same thing with the baby on the way. Love all the Destin pics!

Oh my word!! Poor baby! It looks like it hurts! Hope she gets better soon! :) I think I'm finally back in the blogging world!!

Bless her sweet heart! That brought tears to my eyes. I wonder if something happened to me as a child and thats why I don't like treadmills. Oh well, I guess I can use that as an excuse.

Poor girl!!! That must have hurt! She looks so cute though with her accessories!

That's so cool that y'all are going to do Audrey, too! I loved hearing your thoughts on that name! We love it, and it was also Josh's grandmother's name (who he was very close to).

I am so glad she is alright. When my daughter was about three, she got on mine and managed to turn it on high. It flung her so hard that she hit the wall and almost broke her back. It was awful. And there is nothing like mamma guilt over that. Hope you all have a better week. Take care, Kathy Reynolds

That just makes me so sad!! And how scary, you must have been paniced! I am so glad she is okay and looking adorable every step of the way to recovery!!!

Amy said...

Those pictures are heartbreaking! It's so hard for us to see our sweet babies in pain. I'm glad she's doing well and love that she still found time to accessorize....Fancy Nancy would be proud! :)

Oh no!!! Treadmills can be so dangerous! It's amazing how quickly kids rebound from something like that, though, don't you think? Those pictures are really horrible - poor thing!

Allison said...

oh my goodness...b i am so sorry...

Mindy said...

:( Boooo that looks like it hurts so bad! Poor baby! Thank goodness for babylegs right? I have no reason to purchase those things because they are just not as cute on boys as they are girls....cant figure out why I have so many pairs of them though!

Sandi said...

Oh, NOOO! That's awful! I was just thinking about buying one..!!

I hate that she got hurt. It's always sad to see or hear a baby in pain, isn't it?

Brittney I'm always last to know. Just found your blog last night. I can't believe this post poor little Jules. The Treadmill is very overrated. Once a large exercise ball got sucked up under a treadmill I was on and it sent me flying off.
