The Day I Nearly Lost My Boy...

Was today. You can see the diagnosis on the discharge sheet from the ER. In black and white.

I will relay the story.
But not today.
I can't today.
I'm still shaking.
And I'm going to hold him and Gracie so close.

19 ripples in the pond:

Oh no Tabba. Please, please take care of all of you. I can't imagine.

And please don't hesitate to utilize 911 if you have even the littlest concern for Connor - that is what they are there for and believe me, they'd much rather show up and have everything be okay than not be called at all.

You are in my thoughts.

(((((((Hug)))))))

Jen Magnuson said...

My God I am so, SO sorry. I don't know you but I am saying a prayer of thanks that your boy is alive and in your arms.

Take care.

Erika, Plain Jane Mom said...

Oh! What a horrible ordeal for you all. I am immeasurably happy that the outcome was OK.

Mary-LUE said...

Ditto what everyone else is saying. I can't imagine what that was all like. Give them some extra hugs and kissed from the stranger blog lady in California!

jen said...

oh god, tabba. oh my god. am emailing you now.

thailandchani said...

Startled me to read this. Thank goodness ... all is right.


Peace,

Glad to see you took his personal info off the post. My daughter would be so proud of you. Take care sweetie.

Kevin Charnas said...

Oh man...I'm sending you my best...

Kevin Charnas said...

And HOW DID I MISS THE TITLE???

I can't even begin to imagine...but am still sending you my best, most loving thoughts...

Christine said...

What a terrible scare! As a mom myself I can just image the horror of it all. Glad all is ok.

maigh said...

Oh jeez! Saying a prayer for you and yours...

Tabba said...

Carrie: we are all doing well. Connor is great. Rav is holding me together with the bits that he can gingerly hold together....I'm not making it easy.
Thanks for all of your positive, caring thoughts.

Jen M: Thank you for your prayers and well wishes. It means so much.

Erika: Thank you. And we are all laying low, huddling together picking ourselves up off of the floor :)

Mary-LUE: You don't know how much the kindness and well-wishes of "strangers" is welcome and so comforting. Thank you!

Jen: I can't thank you enough. The miles and "stranger-ness" really don't seem that vast....if that makes any sense. Thank you.

Chani: Thank you for your thoughts....and again, he's doing great.

Deb: yeah.....we weren't thinking clearly AT ALL yesterday. Rav took care of that bit in the wee hours of the morning. Thanks for your kind thoughts and concern.


Kevin: No worries, mate. Ever since I changed up the blog, the font is smaller and the titles are hard to see. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts.

Christine: Yeah. This was the biggest kick in the gut (I hope) I've ever received. Thank you for your thoughts.

Maigh: thanks so much for the prayers. It means so much to us all.

Karen Forest said...

I just came here through jens blog. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know if it were me I would need all the help I could get to help me recover from the trauma of the situation and the "what ifs..." that are sure to follow.

So sorry.

Beck said...

I'm here from Jen's blog - and this is SO scary. I'm so glad your boy is all right.

Deezee said...

This on the heels of your last post...takes away the words. Glad it has a 'positive' outcome, but still...

Words to us all to remember the blessing of our kids...

Seattle Mamacita said...

I'm so glad to hear that everyone is well...so scary. on this very same day my 2.5 year old son had drank so much pool water that he started projectile vomiting water and it scared me to death...

Tabba said...

Karen: Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. And yeah, as happy and thankful for the outcome that we had, I'm struggling with the other stuff too. And I hate admitting that.

Beck: Thank you so much for stopping by and sending your well-wishes. It really does mean so much.

deezee: I know it....I thought about that fact over and over. I remember thinking as we paid the copayment upon being discharged..."what a stupid, whiney post..."
It certainly brought me back to center.

Seattle Mamacita: I'm so sorry. It is so scary, isn't it? I hope your son is OK.
And same to you...thanks for stopping by and wishing us well. I have found so much comfort from such friendly, warm "strangers".

Deezee said...

oops. let me clarify that in my previous comment, I meant to say the previous post about your boy...which wasn't the previous post, but was very poignant about being parents, etc. (and I don't think any of the posts are whiney...we're all just deciphering life, one gulp at a time...)

Magpie said...

Oh how scary - glad he's okay.
