i have had 2 really scary experiences. when my 3rd child, ryder, was almost 4 weeks old, he started projectile vomitting. after 3 days of this and a doctors visit, we were told to go to the er. he had what we feared most...pyloric stenosis, which is when the muscle that the food goes thru after leaving the stomach starts to thicken and eventually close. the food has no where to go but back up then. he needed emergency surgery. within about an hour or 2 of being in the er, they were prepping him for surgery. that was one of the two scariest days of my life. he was only 4 weeks old at the time. i was so afraid that the anesthesia would kill him being so young. i collapsed as they wheeled him away. but he did make it thru surgery with no problems and is a very healthy, big 2 yr old. the other scary day was this past dec 17th. we were in a serious car accident, me, my hubby and our 4 kids. we were hit head on by a car when it was rear ended by a toys r us tractor trailer, going the opposite way. we were doing about 45 to 50 mph. my minivan was totalled. everyone has some kind of injury. i have never been in an accident before so this was horrible!! my son ryder, he seems to be the troubled one, was asleep when we were hit and when i got back to him in the third row, his head was flopped over and he wasnt responding. it took a good 3-4 mins to get him to respond. i was sooooo scared that i had lost him. i never want to have such scary moments again!!!!!
