Last Thursday my cousin's little boy had a fall at his daycare. He suffered head trauma and is currently in the hospital. We are all optimistic that he will recover, but it is very hard for the family to see their little boy in so much pain. This is especially hard because Christmas is comming right up, and I don't think he will be going home before then.


They are living my worst nightmere, I feel soo bad for them

Oh that is horrible news! I am so, so sorry hun. I will absolutely say a prayer for them.

I used to work at childrens rehab hospital that specialized in head injury, you would be amazed at the recovery stories we saw everyday. Don't give up hope, no matter what.

Oh my! That is all of our worst nightmare, I think. It would be hard to have a parent, sibling, or spouse have a major health crisis.....but it would be absolutely torturous to experience that with a child. My heart goes out to them!

Oh Sam, I'm sorry I'm just now reading this. They are in my t&p. I can't believe anyone could ever do that to a child. How terrible. Please kup on how he's doing. I hope the brain can "repair" itself and he won't be blind.

Oh my goodness, that poor little one!! I'm not usually an aggressive person, but I'm with Tina.....if someone did that to my baby they would have to lock her up....before I could get to her. Praying that his young age allows him to "repair" and make a full recovery.

That is just horrible .I looked at Kaetlin and just thought to my self how can anyone want to hurt a little baby.. I know I get frusterated but come on.... It just at horrible thing for a parent to go through especially around Christmas time.. I hope she gets put away for the rest of her life for harming a child.... I pray for you are your cousin's family that in time he will heal himself....

OMG I am welling up at work. That is MY worst fear, someone hurting my angel while I am not there. My heart is breaking for this poor, poor family. My prayers are with them that he will be okay and make a huge recovery. Please update us as you know more. This is just heartbreaking.

I just feel sick thinking about how ANYONE could do that to a baby. My prayers go out to the family. Words don't even describe how this makes me feel.

I told my husband about this last night and he was LIVID. He says that would be the hardest call, by far, to have to take as an officer and he'd probably have to call in someone else to do it. I'm so glad they got to hold him.....maybe the comfort of knowing his parents are there will help comfort him and ultimately help him heal.

Thanks for keeping us updated, Sam. I just can't stop thinking about this whole situation.

I'm glad he was able to go off the c-pap. That is a good thing. And even better that your cousin got to hold him. I'm sure that was one emotional event. Kaileb has been on my mind a lot and I keep praying for him. I hope he heals well and his sight can be restored.

That's a good attitude to have, Sam. I'm sure Kaileb's parents are pretty numb right now, but that they will ultimately be very thankful for the support they are receiving from family and friends during their darkest hour.

I'm so glad to hear they got to hold him and he is off the C-PAP. He is healing already. That is must be very comforting to his Mom and Dad.
