I know some of you want to know the story as to what happened to little Deacon. The last post I just really wanted to thank everyone and let you know that he was okay. I was still very emotional and didn't want to re-live the accident. However, I'm still struggling but as the days go by it is getting better.
Sunday at church I took Deacon out of his car seat to go change a messy diaper. When I returned to class he was a little fussy so I continued to hold and comfort him. Afterwards he was so content and bundled up that I just laid him back in his car seat without buckling it thinking I would remember to do it before we left the church. I proceeded to round up all the other kiddos. Jarron serves in the library and when I got there Bentley wanted me and was fussy and ready to go home for her nap. Jarron told me to take all the kids out to the car and he would bring Deacon and be out in a sec. So, after we got home Jarron was on the side to get Deacon out and because our cars are in the garage pretty tight and the boys get out Deacon's door Jarron lifted him up over the door slanting the car seat down and Deacon slid right out. He fell and hit just a piece of carpet on the concrete floor of the garage from about 5 1/2 ft. high. The moment I heard the hit flashbacks of not buckling him in shot through my mind and I knew the thump was his head. We got home from church about noon and were being admitted to the ER by 12:30. This was such an awful scary mommy moment that I can tell you that not buckling one of my kids into a car seat will never happen again. Again, thanks for all your prayers and cares! Deacon is still doing great and being a tough little trooper!
