Update on Jeremiah’s skull fracture

I wanted to post a quick update on our sweet Jeremiah.  For those who don’t already know he fell down a few stairs last week and fractured his skull.  As you can imagine it was a rough week.  I paniced to say the least and my body has been feeling the effects for the past several days.  It is unbelieveble how emotional trauma can effect your body!  But the good news is that we got a report late yesterday that it was a non depressed fracture which is such wonderful news because now we just let it heal.  The only thing we have to do is return in 6 months for another set of xrays to make sure it is mending properly.  I can’t tell you how thankful to the Lord I am for taking care of my precious boy.  Although this was one of the toughest weeks I have ever had, it could have been so much worse, and Miah is doing great.  We would not have even known he had fractured his skull if it wasn’t for the 4 in pillow like pouch on his head!  He is playing like crazy which you know means climbing and falling.  The toughest part is just keeping that head safe from another blow.  I have been holding him A LOT since that seems to be the only safe place possible for my little adventurer.  Also the stair gate has been fixed so that only Caleb can open it, and I have pretty much camped at the bottom of those stairs this week making it impossible for anyone to leave the thing open. So that is our praise report!  Just wanted to share.  Blessings to you all!
