It was 12 midnight, way pass Ethan’s usual bedtime at 9pm yet he is still unable to sleep. Strangely, Ayden was still wide awake too.
During my confinement, I sleep with my mom and Ayden in a room while Darling remained with Ethan in another room.
Ayden was still unable to sleep; drinking milk and crying in frustration in between. At 2am he showed signs of hunger again so I let him latch on. As I was feeding him (though sleepy to the max I still kept my eyes on him), I noticed milk squirting out of his nostril. I was wiping it away when I realised he was motionless. That was when I knew he was choking! I slapped him hard on his back while crying out loud, “Choke! Choke!” My mom quickly took him away from me and continued slapping his back further until he started to breathe again.
All that happened in just a split second. That was however the longest second of my life. My heart skipped a beat and I broke into cold sweat. It was the scariest moment that I never want to be repeated, ever!
Ayden finally slept at 2.45am but I am unable to close my eyes anymore. I kept looking at him making sure he is breathing nicely. I don’t think I can sleep tonight…
