Eva Amurri Martino says, in a recent blog post, that the night nurse caring for her son cracked the baby’s skull after dropping him. The actress recounts the hell she has been through.
The last weeks of 2016 were difficult, to say the least, for actress Eva Amurri Martino. She reveals, in a recent post on her lifestyle blog, HappilyEvaAfter.com, the anxiety and panic she has been through when her night nurse accidentally dropped her son, Major James, who was about 6 weeks-old at the time.
She starts her post, the first this year, by saying the has been “overwhelmed” lately on different levels and that she was “in an emotionally bad place”.
“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 mother-of-two begins her story. She and husband Kyle were awoken by the sound of their son’s head hitting the floor and the “piercing screams” that quickly followed. They rushed him to the hospital and found out he had “a fractured skull and bleeding on his brain”. He received emergency treatment and was kept under observation. “To say these were the most traumatic and anxious two days of my life is an understatement”, the 31-year-old added.
Eva Amurri gave birth to her son at home, on October 19. A couple of days later, she shared his birth story on her blog.
Amurri, the daughter of the more famous actress Susan Sarandon, married sports commentator Kyle Martino in November 2011, in Charleston, S.C.. The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Marlowe May, in August 2014.
Following the accident of her son, fortunately, there were no long-term medical problems. “By the grace of all of his many angels, and every God one cares to pray to, MAJOR IS FINE. Completely fine”, Amurri wrote, adding that “the (extremely upset and remorseful) nurse is no longer working” for the family, even though they “forgave her”. She says she does not trust anyone around Major but herself and reveals she believes she might be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
