Freak me out!!

So last night Chad & I just got done watching The Happening (which is a totally weird movie) and I decided to wake Amaiya up, change her and feed her some before we went to bed for the night. Well, I got everything ready and next thing I know I was looking a blood stained onesie and diaper! I immiatiatley freaked out! I changed her diaper and cleaned up the blood on her belly. The imbilical cord was soft instead of it being hard..freaking out even more then. I know that it supposed to bleed a little bit when it's coming off but this was I'd say the size of a quarter. Which is not normal. So I called the doctor and they told me to bring her to ACH (arkansas children's hospital), so I did. At 2am we finally got there and she was crashed out asleep in my arms as we waited for the doctor. She finally go in there at 2:58 and started checking her over. I felt so bad cause the woman kept on poking her and looked like it was painful. The doctor said it looks like she may have ripped it some how from the belly button but, she'll be fine because her blood count isn't low and her color is great and no swelling in the belly. So thank goodness she's fine!

I think the reason I freaked out so much is because of how Ethan bleed to death. I seen the blood and it brought me back. Back to that dark depressing days. But, I know Ethan's watching over his brother and sister's and wouldn't let anything happen to them.
