Scary Day

So yesterday, I had one of those days no mother ever wants to have. I had to call 911 for Mia. Before I go further, she is perfectly fine now but things were scary for a few hours. Mia and I were playing in our room when she leaped over some pillows and off the bed landing directing on her head. When I picked her up she lost consciousness and stopped breathing. I laid her down, found her pulse and called 911. Within about 10 seconds she started breathing again and came to, but those 10 seconds seemed like an eternity. She then took a fun ride in the ambulance laughing and making faces at all the EMTs and firefighters. Got 3 cat scans b/c she couldn't stop wiggling. Everything came out perfectly fine, just a minor concussion and a poor mother with shattered nervous.

She felt so good today she went shopping with me this afternoon and worked our church's clothing giveaway all morning. She really loved all the extra hugs and attention she's been receiving.

I am so glad she is ok! Your heart must have skipped a few beats.

Oh my gosh! That is a scary story. I can't imagine! Glad she is back to feeling fine.

I'm very glad Mia is OK. I'm also glad her mommy is OK! I would have been absolutely terrified, too.
