yesturday i had the most horriblist of shoichs and am still reeling from it.

Monday, November 30, 2009

i thought my son ayman who has just turned one was dead.thanks be to god he wasnīt but the way i felt when i thought he was i wouldnīt wish anyone to go through it.in the past there have been times when we thought he might die,which was always frightening and scary but there was still the hope he might make it.this time there was no hope.it is hard to describe what i felt unless you have gone through it yourself,it was like a numbness,a deep pit you were falling into that you couldnīt stop if you tried a sort of nothingness.like something in you had died that you would never getbback.ia part of me died yesturday forever.while all this was going on in my head there was also a panic somewhere in it a long screaming no that was going unendlessly in my head but was not actually making a sound though i was shouting at the top of my voice.there was a stillness as if time had for this second stood still.i know that all this sounds contradictory and i canīt really put in to words what i am trying to say but i just had to somehow get it out and in writting in the hope that i can try and make some sense of it for myself.i know there will be somepeople out there who know exactly what i an trying to put across but canīt seem to word it right.i wish they didnīt know but i know there will be some who do.basically what i am also trying to say is donīt take for granted what you have all the little things in life,all the little troubles as well.learn to appreciate themeven embrace the troubles because it is the trouble times that make the good times look better.i always seem to have lots of worries over my kids health,will always have.that can not be changed but i now know it is better than not having the kids at all.in that short time i was also thinging what will i do now,how can i go on with my life what life have i.it is amasing what and how many things can go through your mind all at once even though there is this numbness you feel.like what is going through your mind doesnīt effect you really.maybe it is a self mechanism,all i know i am still in shock and this deadness in side will be there forever.a part of me died yesturday.hope everyone can make sense of this blog as i have decided not to look through it as i donīt want to change anything as the object was to try and orginise my thoughts and feelings.weather i will ever do that is anouther matter.bear with me any way and i am sorry if this is a blog you would have rather not read or i should have maybe not wrote.be thankful for what we have as we never know how long we will have them for.

    ((HUGS)) Your trauma comes through with every word. Thank God Ayman is okay. Be gentle with yourself. Take one day at a time. You are a strong, incredible woman, and those boys are lucky to have you as their Mom.

    I am sure this was a horrific event in your life. I pray the fear will pass and that a renewed strength will grow from the power of the emotions you experienced.
Life is fleeting and like you stated we need to appreciate and be thankful for all we have. Maybe you can take these feelings and turn them into the strength you need to remain strong on the path of achieving good health and fitness.

    i do know what you are describing. My middle daughter died 2 days after she was born and had to be revived through CPR. It was the scariest most devastating moment of my life and it will always be with me.

It is in these our darkest moments that God shows His face and let's us know that He is here.

Sometimes in my daily stressful life I sorta push God out of it. I think it is all about me and the kids and the stress they put on me. And it takes a moment like what you described to show me how fast it could all be done. To show me that he is here watching over us, protecting our everyday. It's amazing when you really take a birds eye look at it. Just think of all the times that you thought your son was almost gone. God is with you guiding you and protecting you. I hope you can find joy in the blessing instead of focusing on the what if.

Hugs my friend,
Jen
