Re: wreck while pregnant, baby with "issues"

My family was in a car accident September 16th, 2011. My youngest (3 at the time) went unconscious and had impact seizures. We were sitting still, and the drunk guy hit us from behind at 60mph. Our car was totaled. I have permanent back problems, and an unhealed whiplash that has caused cervical spine problems as well.

My 3 year old was in PICU for 6 days, had two brain surgeries, was intubated and in a medical coma for 6 days. He was then moved to intermediate care for another 6 days. He's made a full recovery, but had to learn how to walk/eat/talk again. He couldn't even sit up when he first woke, after the accident. He had physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy.

Looking at him now, he's 100% better. Same old kid he was before. We're one of the lucky ones, but I'll be darned if that wasn't the hardest thing I've ever gone through in my life.

My point?
