Humpty Dumpty had a GREAT fall!!

This is going to be one of the most memorable birthdays I ever had!

Gabriel fell off from the day-bed!!
Mark quickly carried him to the room while I was in the shower.

He shouted," DEAR, HE FELL!!" My heart stopped.

Wrapped in a towel, ran out of the bathroom and first thing in mind is to cuddle him to confort him. I've never seen him cried so hard before. It was heart-wrenching. My hands, my voice was shaking. tried to sing him to comfort him, but to no avail. It must have been a very scary experience for him.

Mark quickly checked his head and found a swell at the back of his head. We did a cold compress despite Gabriel yelling his head off. We simply have to do it.
It was such a scary experience.
The crying lasted for about an hour. Mark and I were both freaking out!!
Finally, when he was more settled, gave him milk, then started distracting him with some play.
Mark did a basic check on his reflexes. thank GOD, he responded. Played with us and could even smile!!

We quickly pack up and head for KK Hospital (Children's Emergency).

It is really at such times, that we know that we are not in control of the situation. We just have to commit everything into GOD's hands! I really thank God for his faithfulness and continuous and countless blessings upon us.
Gabriel is fine now. Milk intake increased from 3 Oz to 5 Oz!!
