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.

The “Angel” TV star, who shares Sid Biggs and Lazlo Biggs, with husband, “American Pie” actor Jason Biggs, 40, said it had been a terrifying hospital visit at Lenox Hill but she thanked the medical staff for their support as her son heals.

Fans reached out to the worried mom and said they’re glad Sid is okay, the “scary” accident was just a reminder that “as parents, we try our best but things can go south in a split second,” wrote “The Office” star Angela Kinsey.

Comedian Molly Austin said:

My mom dropped us a bunch. Moms be droppin! You’re doing great! I’m so glad he’s doing ok!

Earlier this year Mollen told Page Six:

“I just feel like there’s no reason to pretend that it’s easy [being a mom] since like, we’re all you know, going through the same stuff and all have the same struggles.”
