It was a pretty normal start to our Sunday , I woke & had a good jump on the day. I went over to the laundry room at our apartment complex to start some laundry. All the washers were in use so I brought back the laundry & put it behind the couch. I usually keep the laundry packs below in picture in the storage closet outside. This morning I put the last two in the pack w/ my clothes.
I cooked breakfast & got the girls a bath. Thaniqua was waiting for her ride to church. I had a headache so wasn't going today. I went to the bathroom & came back out to the kitchen & next thing Carly is telling me Mommy I'm sick. I look at her & blue stuff running down her lips. My husband grabbed her as she was so sick. Here she got into my laundry soap & bit into one of the laundry cubes. So we called poison control which I have never had to do before. She was very ill & we called them back because she was having trouble breathing.
Here is where we spent the rest of the day.
The first picture is when we first got to the hospital which was around 9:30am. She looked so terrible.
Her first popsicle at about noon. Sorta happy but doing good. She had to have a chest X-Ray but she did well & things looked good.
Last picture just before she was released at 3:30pm. Popsicle & happy again.
As soon as we got home she was eating some potato chips & drinking some Kool-aid , laughing. You would never know how she started her day. I'm so thankful God was watching over her. I'm thankful everyday he there for us always. I'm also thankful my husband was there to help me it was such a fast moving ordeal but we made it.
I still felt like the worst Mom of all. The hospital told me these things happen all the time & Carly was very lucky we moved as fast as we did. It's so very hard to see your child in trouble. I'm so thankful for so many people today. As I close my daughter is sleeping in her bed tonight safe & sound.
P.S. Carly also said Mommy's laundry soap makes you sick.
It will never be left again where she can touch it.
