In a touching Instagram post actress Jenny Mollen, wife of actor Jason Biggs, revealed that her five-year-old son recently fractured his skull. Even though her son, Sid, spent some time in the  ICU, Mollen assured her IG followers that the little boy is on the mend.

So how did the five-year-old fracture his skull? In what’s pretty much every parent’s waking nightmare, Mollen accidentally dropped her child on his head. Mollen described the incident on IG, “On Saturday evening I dropped my son on his head causing him to fracture his skull and landing him in the ICU.”

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. 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. My heart goes out to all parents who have or will ever find themselves in this kind of position. You are not alone…

Mollen also sent a major shout-out to other parents, writing, “My heart goes out to all parents who have or will ever find themselves in this kind of position. You are not alone.” Along with the other mamas and papas out there who’ve been in similar situations, the actress also sent some social media love to her devoted hubby, Biggs, adding, “Thank god for you! Thank god, thank god, thank god.”

Despite the fall, fracture and time in the ICU it looks like Sid is recovering well. Mollen wrote, “He is also eating a lot of chocolate dipped ice cream cones and plans to try cherry dipped soon.”

The well-wishing comments for the mama and her family poured in via Instagram. And like her IG followers, we also send our love to Mollen, Biggs and their brave little boy!
