Julia

Update on the Face

Img_8248_1_2For those of you following along, here’s the latest picture (taken this morning) of Julia’s face (you can read about the initial event here and the update I did 3 days later here).

She’s healed up pretty well – you can see some thin, shallow pink scars that I think will fade out over time, and I am applying Eucerin healing ointment (or whatever it’s called) a few times a day as well. 

She is none the worse for wear.

In fact, on Sunday, my husband – who has recently become a born-again skiier (yes), took both kids to a local ski area, got them both outfitted in rental equipment, bought Julia a cute pair of goggles (pink), and the kids had an hour lesson while Bill hit the slopes.

Apparently the instructor told Bill he was really impressed with Julia – for one thing, that she didn’t lose interest halfway through the lesson (because of her age) and also because she is a very determined little soul and did not give up.  If she fell, she got back up and tried again.  And again.  And again.  She was completely wiped out by the end of the lesson, but she had a great time and wants to ski again.

Which is fine with me, as long as she wears a full helmet of some kind to protect her face.  I don’t think that’s asking for much.
