In life we have so many different types of moments that forever touch us in some way. Some are those happy moments that you remember with a smile on your face. And then there are those that when you look back bring tears to your eyes. You couldn’t stop the tears if you tried.
I have a friend. Her sister’s little girl over a year ago ingested toxic soda, or better known here in the US as a dry powder crystal type Draino. When I found out, I of course hoped that somehow the little 2-year-old girl would make. Her poor mom had only turned her back for like 30-seconds and that’s all it took.
But as I sit here typing this I can’t help but think of the mom. I know how she feels. Her hands are tied. All she can do is stand back and watch what is happening to her precious little girl. She would give anything to make her better but she can’t. You feel helpless. This is your baby.
The day I watched my daughter’s heart rate pummel downward right in front of my eyes on the monitor is a day I will never forget. The words the nurse spoke forever etched upon my mind. “Get a crash cart. She’s coding.” Something like this only happens in movies. It’s not supposed to happen to me. And yet there I was being pushed out of my daughter‘s room while so many medical personnel swarmed into her room and I fell to a heap on the floor just outside her room. I would have given my life for my daughter if I could have. In that moment, yes they were able to save her but in the end God called her to be home.
It’s been over five-years for me and I can now look back at all the blessings God has put in my life. But this mom, all she can do is stand by and pray that somehow, someway her daughter will be able to make it. I know that right now she is being rushed off to a special children hospital due to more complications. My heart is there with the mom. Please pray for them both. Thank you.
