ER visit

My kids love to freak me out.  These kids never go to the pediatrician for any reason other than vaccinations.  They aren't ever sick or hurt.  It's pretty amazing.  But we just made our third ambulance trip last night.

First was Paisley's trip in Vegas after having a seizure.  Next was Graham's transfer to the children's hospital from another hospital with meningitis.  Now last night....

Graham was sitting on a cute kid's chair in our living room.  He stood to scoot it behind him and tipped forward, hitting his head on our wood floor.  He stood up immediately but couldn't get a sound out and then passed out.  Aaron yells for my help and hands me an unconscious, non-breathing baby.  He is now stiff and blue and non responsive.  

I tell Aaron to call 911 and thump Graham on the chest a few times.  (It's the beginning of CPR).  I haven't checked for a pulse yet but I know he isn't breathing.  So, after what seemed like 30 minutes but was about 30 seconds- he took a breath.  He remained lethargic for the next 20 minutes but was almost completely normal by the time we got to the hospital.

We avoided a head CT because we did observation and he didn't vomit or have any clear indication to do one so that was a relief.  I sure didn't sleep much though!!!!
