It only took a second…

Hi everyone,

First of all, I want to thank all of you who have sent beautiful heartwarming messages to me and all the get well wishes for my boy, I read him all the messages when we where at the hospital but to be honest it helped me more than him.

They say that children get into accidents all the time and no matter how careful we are with them, it happens.  It is never our fault and no matter how much we try to prevent certain things from happening, they happen.

Since my son was born, I have been one of those overprotective mothers who are absolutely afraid of EVERYTHING…  Even before, when I was pregnant I had borrowed my cousins Doppler so I would be able to hear my sons heart beat every day.  When he was born, I would check his breathing (I am not joking) every 5 minutes.  For the first 3 months he slept on my chest just so I could feel him breathing.  I still till this day, will wake up in the middle of the night to check his breathing. If he gets sick, I fear the worst and I immediately have him checked for everything.  When the time came for RG to start solid food I thought I was going to drive my self crazy with all the scenarios that went through my head.  I was so scared he would choke that I would cut his food in such small pieces, poor thing probably couldn’t taste anything.  (I am laughing now, but back then it was a big fear of mine)  When he first started walking I was sure he would fall on his face that I found my self holding my breath every time.  I worry so much about him getting hurt, that I have no idea how this accident happened and it breaks my heart when I think of his pain that horrible day…

    I always say that being a Mum is like having constant guilt – especially when anything happens to our little ones. Wishing your little guy a speedy recovery – sounds like he’s doing super well already! I had severe burns like that down my entire side as a child (from boiling water) and made a full recovery, if that helps at all – young skin is magical in it’s healing capabilities! Hope you’re managing to put it all past you now and enjoying some special Mama and Son time together. Thinking of you xxx

    Thank you so much! We actually had a visit with the surgeon today to remove the gauze from his hand and body but RG decided to scratch his side and so they decided to leave it on for another week! they only removed the gauze from his hand and it does honestly look like he got a sun burn… I am truly amazed by how different it looks in just a couple of weeks! the progress is fantastic and I am sure the stuff we will use on him now will work towards him not having any scars. The blog was really hard for me to write because I did honestly write down how I felt and even though I cried through the entire thing it helped… It’s one of the reasons I love my Blog so much, it is really my own personal diary!!! 🙂 Thanks mamas for all your love and support xxx
