Wal- Mart Scare

Today I saw one of the scariest things. (I don't know every detail of what happened so here is the short version.) I walked into wal-mart and there lying on the ground was a little girl not moving. She was about Olivia's age. My heart sank and I could feel my eyes starting to fill up with tears. There were a group of people around trying to help out the mom who was panicking and trying everything to make her daughter breath. They had called 911 so paramedics were on their way. I thought maybe she was choking on something since they kept saying she couldn't breath. Others were saying she was having a seizure. Some said they think she fell out of the cart because she was bleeding, but I don't know exactly what happened. My heart just kept sinking deeper. It was so scary to think I couldn't do anything to help, especially being a mom now I just kept thinking of Olivia. I just prayed the whole time I was at Wal-Mart that she would be okay. The paramedics did get there and they did resuscitate her. She started crying and her mom carried her out to the ambulance. So that did bring some relief to my heart, but I can't imagine how that mom is feeling.
I just remember how I felt when I was at Roberts Craft with Olivia and how she choked on a balloon string, and she started shaking since she couldn't breath and I panicked because I couldn't get it out of her.Luckily Olivia was alright.Things like that just really hit you especially when its children because they are so helpless when they are that small. I keep praying that, that mom will feel alright and that her child will be fine too. I guess seeing that happen you just realize even more how important family is.
