The day after we got home from the hospital after The Kid’s accident, I started to write down all my thoughts and feelings of the first 24 hours. You know, while they were still fresh in my mind. I will never forget how I felt, but I knew those deep, intense feelings would dissipate over time.
So, before that happened, I wrote them all down. I composed a post and submitted it to a large blogging site called “Scary Mommy.” They have over a million followers. I wanted to share my experience and what I went through in the hopes of letting other mothers, who may have experienced that same fear, know that they are not alone.
