She scared the life out of me.......

Baby Miya that is...the little girl I babysit. She was sitting in the exersaucer and started digging at the port for her feeding tube that goes into her tummy. I said firmly, but not meanly....."NO"......She started crying that silent cry babies do sometimes when mad or hurt.....usually when you call the child's name or touch them they start using their voice and catch their breath. SHE DID NOT! She kept screaming without breathing and passed out. I picked her up during this time and laid her on the couch calling her name....her eyes rolled back and I called her name very loudly during this time.....saying "breathe Miya.....breathe"........then after what seemed like and eternity but what was probably a very short time..she caught her breath and cried! IT SCARED me SENSELESS. I am definitely asking her mom about this one!

Talk about fear.......my word......! My kids were staring and calling her name too. I am pretty sure it scared them too. I reassured them after Miya was calm and happy she was fine. She is now sleeping peacefully.

I did find out along with her liver issues she has pulmonary stenosis...I wonder if this plays a part in what happened. I think I need to take a refresher course on infant CPR. I know how to do it....but it has been a while since I updated my status.

Miya continues to need her miracle. God is able.

Here she is....beautiful Miya on a recent warm day...can't wait for these to happen daily...a little Miracle in the making:
