How I wish I had skipped The Bump today. Then I would not have read the post about a toddler who died yesterday after having a fever of 105. He had been fine the day before-and now he’s dead. I feel completely depressed and heartbroken. I cannot imagine the pain that these parents are going through-I’m crying and I’m close to vomiting I am THAT upset. His mom described him as a kid who knew over 50 signs and found everything funny.
For Thanksgiving this year, I will meditate on how thankful I am that Sophie is healthy. She’s smart, she’s perfect, she has not been sick a day in her short life. At least for now, she is healthy and safe.
I pray I never know that type of pain.
