106/365... My hero joy

He was ready for his day-long fire training.

Although it was cold and rainy, he was fired up to fight fire.

It's amazing how quickly things can happen.

Near the end of a long training day, he was lighting a road flare when it popped in his face. The chemicals instantly went into his eyes. After flushing out his eyes, they were still burning.

A trip to the ER was necessary. He endured 15 minutes of pure misery while they flushed his eyes. My heart went out to him as I slowly watched the saline go down through the tubes, right into his eyes. When it was all done, he stuck his tongue out at me. I don't remember doing that to him after no less than 15 hours of labor with each pregnancy. Humph!

He was lucky. Very lucky. Some swelling. Minor scratches that will quickly heal.

It could have been so much worse.

God is so very, very good.

My hero joy.

The first one is a fantastic portrait! The second one has all the drama of fire. Glad to hear he is okay after the ER visit--your comment about labor made me chuckle!

Thank the Lord he is ok. I got goosebumps when I read that he will be fine. I would have been a mess. These are beautiful photos especially the first one. Great job!

I'm so glad he was ok! What a scary call that must have been to receive.
