A year ago on this Sunday morning, Josh and I were about to get ready for church when our sweet baby boy fell and cut his forehead so badly that we had to take him to the ER. I wrote all about it and how I felt here.
Today I'm sharing pictures I never posted before. Not even on facebook. I'm not really sure why I didn't use them with my post or put them in an album on facebook. I guess my emotions were still pretty raw, and I didn't like looking at them.
They still can bring up that emotion.
"In that moment when I was holding him, I began to shake. I'm not sure why, I think I just couldn't believe that this was happening to one of my children. He was hurting, so badly, the bleeding not slowing at all, the cut looked like something I've only seen in movies."
And this was the picture I took the first night we took off the bandage:
But now, a year later, he looks like this:
I usually brush his hair forward, but for the sake of writing about it, I thought I'd show what his scar looks like. For both of my boys, I like to have them with a bit of hair, but even more so with Gabriel since he has that scar (which is the other reason I was really sad when he had this hair cut). But it's amazing how the body can heal - I often don't notice his scar.
Just a memory I was thinking of this morning. I can't believe it's been a year ago.
