Bloody Nose in Middle of the Night... made me grateful...

There is nothing more disturbing for me then my son coming to my bedside at 2 am and telling me he has a bloody nose... After grabbing my glasses and sitting up, I realized that he said bloody nose, but there seemed to be some sort of bloody geyser happening...

Barely awake and able to process what's going on, I see my 9 year old strong and mature in dealing with it... He already had a tissue and was pinching as I taught him.. his shirt covered in blood and it streaming down is arms...

it's so hard not to panic in this kind of situation.. I don't love blood... or nose goo in any way... But it's truly awesome how a mom can rally and handle and deal with whatever they got.. and I feel blessed that THAT was what I got... I think of all the moms and parents out there that have and manage their children's serious medical conditions daily and nightly...

I don't know what his nose bled... was he picking? Most likely.. lol.. it stopped and we changes his clothes and all is well this morning..

My son is a bit of a worrier... SO, to see him handle it and THEN come get me and NOT freak out made me so proud and so grateful for what a dude he is becoming...

He even remembered to pinch and NOT put his head back...

Props to all those moms out there dealing with issues that I can't even imagine... I honor you today!!!

How scary for you...
I was proud that he handled but still needed me.. He can freak out a little over things so this was awesome.. He did what he needed to do first and then got me... Of course of he yelled out I would have been there for a second, but he's 9 and it's interesting to watch him sort of handle himself.. as I've taught him too (hopefully)... :)
