What a scary, close call!
Jenny Mollen and Jason Biggs are counting their lucky stars after a horrifying accident over the weekend landed their five-year-old son, Sid, in the hospital.
The 39-year-old actress revealed she dropped her son on his head, fracturing his skull. The injury was so severe that Sid had to be admitted to an intensive care unit for treatment and observation. Mollen shared the details of what went down in the caption of her Instagram post on Wednesday.
“On Saturday evening, I dropped my son on his head causing him to fracture his skull and landing him in the ICU. I am forever grateful to Lenox hill downtown and @nyphospital for their immediate response and aid. Thank you to all of the nurses, neurologists, pediatricians, residents, cafeteria staff and brave women that keep the visitor’s bathrooms clean.”
Ugh, so crazy! It sounds like the concerned parents got the medical help they needed just in time.
The Angel alum continued with words of praise and appreciation for her husband in the wake of the accident:
“Not sure how this post turned into an Oscars acceptance speech… But @biggsjason Thank god for you! Thank god, thank god, thank god. It has been a traumatic week but Sid is home now taking things slowly and recovering nicely. He is also eating a lot of chocolate dipped ice cream cones and plans to try cherry dipped soon.”
Jenny’s post ended with a message of comfort for the moms out there who’ve been in her shoes before:
“My heart goes out to all parents who have or will ever find themselves in this kind of position. You are not alone…”
