‘Mommy, I’m scared!’ Her eyes rolled to the back of her head. I was terrified to turn around.’: Little girl survives freak accident on family Go Kart, mom claims she’s a ‘walking miracle’

“The engine shut off. My world stopped. Time stopped. Lani is on the floor, not moving. My mother is holding her scalp to her head. ‘Baby girl! Please wake up!’ Hearing the words ‘your daughter may not make it’ is the most frightening statement you can hear as a parent. I’m sure of it.”

“All my life, even now, I have never been around them when they weren’t holding each other’s hand. The pure love in his eyes when he looks at her is the kind of love everyone dreams of experiencing. For some people, a nursing home is the best option for their loved one with Alzheimer’s, but there’s no way my grandma would ever let that happen. She’s determined to take care of her best friend.”
