Oh what a fun night!! . . . NOT!


So this afternoon I went up to my parents house with Marshy-Marsh. He started getting fussy and having a fever, so we went home. When we got home, as I was taking him upstairs to go to bed I noticed that he was kind of limp and his eyes were rolling back into his head! I immediately ran downstairs with him, laid him on the living room floor, and called 9-1-1. About 5 minutes later the policeman showed up, and a few minutes after that the paramedics showed up. They gave Marshy-marsh some oxygen and loaded us up in the ambulance. Yes, that's right. We rode in an ambulance. Marshy-marsh freaked out the whole way.
Fortunately, my dear friend Lola met me at the hospital and was there to help me keep calm....sorta. Needless to say I was somewhat hysterical. She held Marshy while I gave the nurse all of our information and described what happened and what his symptoms have been for the last few days.


Luckily, we had the BEST on-call doctor at Mountain View (so I'm told...but I thought he was really nice). Turns out my dear little angel has a double ear infection which caused the fever which caused the seizure. The doctore prescribed some antibiotics for the ear infection. They kept him there for ovservation for about an hour, and then sent us home.


Thanks Lola for keeping me calm and giving us a ride home!
Here are some pics of our hospital stay:

How awful. I'm so sorry. Kids are sometimes so resiliant and then so fragile. One of mine used to hold her breath until she passed out and then had seizures. Luckily she grew out of that but I know how frightening that is. Terrifying. Terrible. Sorry.
