Early this morning, my nephew’s father D was feeding him his bottle on the couch, when he fell asleep holding his son. At some point, the baby fell off his father’s lap and hit his head on the coffee table.
My sister G (yeah, the same one who screamed at me a few days ago), woke up upon hearing the noise and her husband tried to cover it up as the sound of the noise she heard as a bottle falling. She didn’t think anything of it until he put the baby to bed and she checked the video monitor from her room, looking at her husband touching the baby’s head to check if he was okay. She got up, scared and livid, saw the bumps/scrape on the baby’s head and face, and called 911.
Baby C (about 7 months) got a concussion. After a cat scan and some amount of time, they determined he was okay enough to go home.
What’s worse, is that her husband had gone out drinking earlier that night. He was trying to be a good husband by feeding the baby, and made a grave mistake. He’d been crying ever since my sister called the paramedics.
Child protective services will probably (and rightfully) will be called to investigate.
I think (and hope and pray) the baby will be fine.
I am not so sure about the relationship between my sister and her husband.
Just please say a prayer for them. No matter how badly my family mistreats me, I don’t wish harm to come to them. I don’t want their family to be torn apart by a mistake like this.
