The guilt of a mother….

My little boy had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital because he was having so much trouble breathing. I knew he was sick. I should have taken him to the doctor earlier.

I barely saw my other 2 children while he was in the hospital. My 5 year old son sent over a truck for him. He was very worried. I was not there to comfort him.

I had to leave this little guy while he was sleeping so that I could get some sleep myself. He never should have been alone in the hospital.

I drove through McDonald’s and got one of these on my way to the hospital. Don’t even tell me how bad they are for you. I feel guilty enough as it is.


Taylor is home and is continuing to recover. He’ll be on several medications for the next few days and a couple of them all the way until school is out in May. Thank you for your prayers and warm wishes. It is appreciated. I feel guilty that I cannot take time to thank each of you individually.

    Don’t feel guilty, Melanie. You did take Taylor to the Doctor and you did spend time with him in the hospital and Kyle and Haley were well taken care of while you were away. You did the best you could and that’s all any of us can do. You are an excellent mother so don’t berate yourself. We’re just thankful for doctors and hospitals and that Taylor is on the road to recovery.
    Love to you all,

    You silly little pickle….

    Don’t even go there.

    Were the breakfast cinnamon things at least good?

    This is by the way why we have family — we can’t do it all on our own.

    The cinnamon melts were yummy. 🙂 I KNOW I should not feel bad about these things. But sometimes what you know and what you feel are different things.

  4. 4 Me again... veggie quoting without an actual quote this time because it is getting late! February 12, 2008 at 3:28 am


    Tomorrow will be a new day and a better day.

    Live out of what you KNOW. 🙂 God is still in control and He took good care of Taylor and Kyle and Haley and you and Luke…and you get the idea. 🙂

    Guilt is the most useless emotion, and one of the most damaging!! Feel good that you took care of your son, and that he is so much better. By the way, he is so adorable, even with the tube up his nose!!
