There's literally nothing worse than the thought of something bad happening to our children.

We love and care about them so much...

And if anything was to ever happen to them, we don't know what we'd do.

The world we are living in is full of hidden dangers...

And there's no denying that it can be the most dangerous of places.

While we're constantly busy making sure our kids cross the road safely or that they don't talk to strangers...

There are so many unlikely hazards out there that many of us parents don't even think about.

And sadly...

Some of these hazards are completely unpreventable, no matter how hard we try.

This was realized recently by Sally and Ian Gooderham.

The couple, who are from Essex in the U.K, share their 10-year-old daughter, Maisie.

Maisie has always been a healthy girl...

And Sally fondly described her only daughter as an animal lover who was "always smiling." "She had her own YouTube channel and did TikToks. Sometimes she would phone up the house pretending she was from a pizza delivery place with an Italian accent."

But on August 7th...

Maisie complained to her mom of a headache, with her specifically saying, "Mommy, I don't feel well."

Little Maisie then collapsed...

And paramedics rushed to the family home, where they then took the little girl to an expert unit at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

Maisie's critical condition came out of nowhere...

And doctors felt it was necessary to place her into an induced coma.

Sally and Ian were distraught.

"We had no prior warnings," Sally, 47, said to local news outlets. "It didn't make any sense because there were no signs."

2 weeks after Maisie was induced into her coma...

The grave decision was made to switch off her life support after the doctors caring for her realized nothing more could be done. She passed away in her mom's and dad's arms.

This loss is utterly tragic...

via: Facebook

And since the news of her death was released, floods of well-wishes and condolence have been coming in for the family.

Maisie's funeral was held on September 18th for a small gathering of family due to COVID restrictions...

And Sally has now spoken of what caused her daughter's sudden and shocking death.

When Maisie was first rushed into the hospital, doctors discovered a "catastrophic bleed" on her brain.

via: Getty

It was an aneurysm in the brain that caused traumatic bleeding after a breach in the blood vessel wall, and Sally described her daughter's hidden problem to Cambridgeshire Live as a "time bomb ticking in her head".

It could have happened at "any time."

via: Getty

"That could have gone off at any time, we're just truly thankful it was with us," Sally added, before describing her final moments with her daughter. "On Maisie's last day we did a memory day. They gave her as much time as possible. We painted her hands and feet and took prints. We took locks of her hair and her fingerprints. We had some professional pictures taken. The chaplain came and blessed her."

We can't imagine how difficult that must have been for Sally and Ian...

But the mourning parents are just grateful they were able to lay with their child for one last time.

Rest in Peace, Maisie.
