Rachel shared a photo of Skyler (whom she affectionately calls Sky) in the emergency room, lying in a hospital bed.
She wrote on the photo that she shared to her stories, “So I don’t typically share like this but I’m posting this to remind everyone how fragile life is and how it can turn in a minute…”
“This is Sky yesterday in the ER and I will share what happened when I feel more ready,” Rachel continued.
“The outcome is Sky is doing great and the bravest boy I’ve ever known but @rbermanus and I are shattered and numb but woke up today with gratitude for a miracle that Sky is safe and OK.”

Rachel then explained, “Sky fell 40 feet from a ski lift yesterday which could have been easily prevented if the operator had stopped the lift when he saw sky wasn’t on from the start and @rbermanus screaming to stop the lift.”
“Needless to say by a miracle and the Ski patrol heroes who quickly put a mat under where they thought he would fall ultimately saved his life or from what could have happened.”
Pretty scary, right? Thank goodness her son is ok! She then shared an update video of Sky smiling and tumbling on a couch.
“And just like that after experiencing an actual miracle..#Sky is almost 💯 percent back to himself after falling 40 feet from a ski-lift less than 48 hours ago,” Rachel said.

She finished her post with, “He wanted me to share this video today because he felt bad so many people were so worried about him.”
“To all the parents, please please hug your babies of any age extra tight from us today. Thank you again for your love we truly feel it so deeply.”
