I'll tell you a little about why you have not seen daddy for a while, and I'll do it without ranting. I probably need to practice that.
Yesterday, you both took your afternoon nap out in the waiting room at the Oregon Burn Center. The doctors and nurses won't let little guys like you in, so Grampa Fred stayed with you while I went in for a bit to talk to daddy. They are very careful in the burn center, and I had to get special permission to get in to see him and I had to wash my hands and wear gloves and a gown and a mask so I wouldn't give him or the other patients any bad germs that might make them sicker, and also so I don't get sick from their infections. He didn't get burned, but the burn center is the best place for the doctors and nurses to help him get better. He is sick because he made a mistake. He did not take care of his feet and he didn't ask anyone to help him either. Because daddy can't feel his feet or move very much, he has to be very careful to take care of his feet and his skin so they don't get hurt. He forgot to do this, so his feet are very sick. Everyone at the hospital is going to try and help him get better, but it may take a long time. So you may not get to see daddy for a little while.
I told daddy when I was there about you and how you made finger paintings with your carrots and I also read him the letter that I wrote below. I had a very serious talk with him about how unhappy I was that he let himself get so sick. He is sad and sorry that he forgot to take care of his feet. He misses you both very much.
I'm very upset with him right now, so I'm taking a little break and I don't know when I will go visit him again. He is getting an X-ray picture of his feet taken on Monday and then the doctors will decide what is the best way to make them better. We will go over to his house everyday and feed Scrapper and Kai. Maybe you can talk to him on the phone. I know that he loves you and me very much. I just wish that he better understood that showing someone you love them by taking care of yourself and being considerate of them is more important than just telling them. Maybe he will learn something sitting in there all day with nothing to do.
