A few years ago I bought two first aide gel packs to keep in the freezer for injuries. At first, this seemed like a great idea to just keep them around. However, both have burst over time and stained clothing and furniture with the colored dye that is added to the mixture. Not fun to have a ruined couch cushion!
We’ve had several injuries in our home, teens seem to get injured often with twisted ankles, an occasional broken bone, and the incidental bruise that happens every now and then. Things like sports and just trying to get used to their growing body naturally bring some injuries.
