Eva Amurri Martino has long been a voice of honesty when it comes to parenting bloggers.


From sharing her heartbreak after she had a miscarriage and being open about her struggles with depression, Eva has used her blog Happily Eva After has a platform to share her truths and struggles with her followers.


And the mum-of-two decided to start the new year off the same way.

Speaking about a rough holiday period, Eva shared her terrifying experience after her three-month-old son Major was rushed to hospital after an accident in their home.


“A couple of days after Thanksgiving, our Night Nurse fell asleep while holding Major and dropped him, and he cracked his head on the hardwood floor,” the 31-year-old said in her latest post.



Eva went on to describe the moment she and husband Kyle were woken to the sounds of their son’s screams in the heartbreaking post.


“Kyle and I were sleeping at the time and were awoken by the sound of his head hitting the floor, and then hysterical piercing screams.


“He suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on his brain, and was transported by ambulance to the hospital where I spent two harrowing days with him to receive emergency care and further testing.


“To say these were the most traumatic and anxious two days of my life is an understatement.”

Thankfully, Eva told her readers that Major is now fine but says the incident has changed her.


“But here’s the good part: by the grace of all of his many angels, and every God one cares to pray to, MAJOR IS FINE.


“He has been healing well, hitting milestones, cooing, smiling, and generally showing us that he is and will be ok as he grows and develops.”

Eva now says she finds it “impossible to trust anyone but myself to take care of Major now” and says his cries now “instigates an immediate panic attack – my heart races and tears spring to my eyes.”


However, the daughter of legendary actress, Susan Sarandon says that she is optimistic for the year ahead and finished her post with a message many could do with hearing.


“With open arms, I welcome 2017 as the year I learn to forgive a little deeper, to let go a little more easily, to accept some things I cannot change, and to love myself a lot more unconditionally.”
