I walked over to him touched his puffy purple hand & began to cry. I quickly got myself together as I had to for Atticus and drove to Children's Mercy Emergency room. I chocked up again when we arrived. However, they were very helpful and kept Atticus (me) calm. This was the first time I had seen him hurt, not a scrapped knee or an ear infection but actually hurting. It was awful, knotted my stomach and made me sweat literally, my armpits were watering. The worst part of the hospital visit was when they came in a few hours later to place this splint on his arm. It took Danon, myself and 4 nurses yes four said they had never seen a kid fight like him. He was crying and kicking so hard he passed out in my arms. Nigh night atti. After he woke up he was amazing about it - very tough.
Having a child is like having your heart walk around outside your body.
It's the most amazing amount of love when you fall in love with them.
However, I found out today that that comes with the most amazing
amount of pain when you cannot heal their pain.
