We can't even begin to imagine going through this!
Back in October 2016, Eva Amurri Martino gave birth to her second child, a baby boy named Major James. But it has not been smooth sailing as Eva experienced what has to be one of the scariest incidents one could go through as a parent.
Susan Sarandon's daughter revealed in a new blog on her website that her son suffered a cracked skull just after Thanksgiving when her night nurse dropped him. Apparently, the nurse was holding him and fell asleep, leading to the fall which caused Major to suffer a fractured skull and bleeding on his brain.

Eva, 31, wrote that she and her husband, Kyle, were asleep at the time, but were woken up by the 'hysterical piercing screams':
"[He] was transported by ambulance to Yale Medical Center 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."
While Major is now 'completely fine' and moving along well at three months old, Eva has not fully recovered from the horrible accident. She revealed that she feels as though she is suffering from some sort of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that might be linked to Postpartum Depression:
"The guilt I bore in the days and weeks after this accident was more intense and more damaging than anything I would wish upon my worst enemy … And even though I finally made peace with the fact that this freak accident could not have been avoided by me, it has continued to effect me to my core and in all aspects of my daily life … Hearing Major cry hard immediately triggers my memories of the moments after the accident and instigates an immediate panic attack– my heart races and tears spring to my eyes."
Eva has also struggled with nausea, dizzy spells, panic attacks, and sleeplessness.
Now the actress is no longer employing a night nurse — instead choosing to care for her two children by herself alongside her husband.
We're sure it's not easy after that trauma to not worry about Major and the couple's daughter, Marlowe Mae. But we hope Eva is able to put her mind at ease and get any help she may need as her children continue to grow and flourish.
