911 Call and Major Hysteria

Well today was a day that has emotional worn me out. Brittany was sitting on my kitchen chair which is by my computer. I was standing right next to her mind you. She had my camera and took the batteries out so I was putting the batteries back in and she was moving herself. I remember her sitting against my desk and the next thing I know she is lying on her back on the floor. I have no idea what in the world happend. I picked her up and she was trying to cry but couldn’t breathe. I kept telling her to breathe. I laid her down on my bed and her eyes rolled back into her head and her little body was stiff. Dakota lightly shook her and said Brittany breathe she came back to and her eyes rolled back into her head and her body was stiff.

I frantically grabbed the phone and called 911. They said they were on their way. Well I picked her up and she was crying and then she was trying to doze off. I kept waking her up and not let her fall asleep. I kept crying and screaming where are they. It felt like a whole eternity for them to get here. In the process of my crazy hysteria my son Dakota (with autism) called 911 back to ask where they were. He was worried about his little sister.

Well the first person to arrive was the chief of police. I was so hysterically and I couldn’t breathe or calm down. He kept telling me to calm down. I couldn’t the rescue squad came in and I gave the baby to the lady and I went and showed the chief where she fell from. I cried harder and said I was standing right next to her. He yelled and yelled at me to calm down and I couldn’t. The lady that had my daughter came in and said she is doing ok. That her breathing is good and she is responding. She gave her back to me and I calmed down. The original plan was to take her to the hospital.

Well the chief left and it was just the rescue squad here. We talked more about what happened and I kept telling them that it reminded me of Dakota’s seizures. The lady said that Brittany probably knocked the wind out of herself and that is how she reacted. At the time I started calming down thinkin oh I didn’t know that’s how a little one reacts when they get scared. We decided that it was ok to let her go to sleep and wake her up in an hour. I would monitor her and if something got worse I would call and they would take her to the hospital. I was comfortable with that. They left.

Oh yeah I can’t forget that when the lady tried to grab her back she cried. When I tried to lay her down she clung to me hard.  So these were all good signs.

Shortly after I awoke her the rescue squad called me to ask how she was doing. Then at 7 PM tonight another gal on the rescue squad who knows me called and asked me how she was doing. That made me feel good that they cared and asked how she was doing.

Well she woke up and she cuddled for a while then she was her mischievous self. About 6PM she drank some water from a bottle and then threw up. I think it was the fact that she drank to much water. Well I deicded to take her temperature and she was 100.5. Then it dawned on me and I got to thinking and I kept replaying the images in my head.

Is it possible that my daughter had a seizure? Her temperature was not taken. They were out in the cold before they came in that was not a thought in any of our minds. I didn’t see her when she fell. When someone has seizures their seizure threshold is much lower when they are sick. After seizures people go to sleep. To me this is all adding up. I could be over reacting and it could all be coincidence. It could be that she knocked her breathe out. I don’t know.

I called the after hours nurse and scheduled an appointment tomorrow for her to be checked out and to talk about my concerns. At least it will give me peace of mind. I will feel better.

She had a similar episode when she was 5 1/2 weeks where she stopped breathing lips started turning blue and her body was stiff and her eyes rolled. They kept saying it was acid reflux. The eeg for a very short minute showed abnormility they tied it up to her being an infant. They did a longer eeg and it was normal. Dakota had a normal eeg a few times before it was abnormal.

So I can’t help but wonder. I am calm and thinking clearly. It just took me hours to process this for it all to click.

    Thanks Anne. I will let you know I take her in at 9:45 this morning. I am a nervous ball of wreck. LOL I know I shouldn’t be comparing Dakota and Brittany but what I saw just didn’t add up to me. I am not saying the rescue squad is wrong by no means or they didn’t do enough. I didn’t even think of her temperature. She did fall from the chair but see that’s what I didn’t see. I didn’t see what happened before that. I didn’t think to take her temperature. I am not sure they did either. But I don’t fault them for that at all. I was really happy that they called to check on her. That was really nice of them. My head is going in a million directions. Maybe I am being over cautious. I don’t know.

    It sure was a scary day Storm. I will keep you all updated on what happens. I agree it’s much better to be safe then sorry. If the Doctor rules it out I will let it rest. If it happens a third time I will demand testing. Right now I just need to ease my mind. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

    Oh wow…I’m so sorry to hear this Stacie. I hope Brittany is doing okay now but I’m glad that you have an appointment scheduled. Better to get her checked out not only for her sakes, but for you. I do hope she just got the wind knocked out of her. My thoughts are with you. Keep us posted 🙂

    Thanks Thom. I go back to when she was 5 1/2 weeks and something like this happened before. It just really makes me wonder. I have a really good family doctor who takes the time to listen so I am will be ok with her answers. I will let you all know later. Brittany is doing ok this morning. Woke up with a little low grade fever but she is watching Mikey Mouse. LOL

    You are right Thom that doesn’t happen often. I am really pleased that they called. They were all very nice and I was very pleased with them checking over Brittany. The second call the lady actually knew me so we talked a little longer. But I thought it was very nice of them to call and check on her.

    Thanks Corrie. I am sure things will be fine. I have to follow my gut feeling. I did for Dakota when he was smaller and I got answers. So it’s time for me to do it again with Brittany.

    That sounds very scary – I would be hysterical if that happened too. I hope she is ok. That is cool they checked up on her later – I never heard of that happening. Hope you can get some answers at her appointment. 🙂

    Thanks Sue. I was scared and waiting for them during a snow storm felt like enternity. LOL But it really wasn’t all that long before they came it just feels like it when your in panic. I am sure Brittany will be fine. I think this appointment is more for me and peace of mind and ruling it out ASAP.

    Thanks Grampy. I was proud of Dakota you can tell he really loves his sister and he was worried about her. I was also thankful that the dispatcher didn’t get upset with him.

    Oh my lord! What a horrible, frightening experience for all of you. Apparently Brittany forgot about it pretty quickly, yay! WTG Dakota. You’ll get to the bottom of this.

    I had come over and read this as soon as I saw it on facebook, and said prayers, and I am sorry I haven’t written until now, but I have been thinking of you. It is SO scary when something happens to your baby. We had to call 911 when my son choked, and I wasn’t even crying or hysterical, just shaking and I kept getting yelled at to calm down, too.
    I haven’t read the updated post yet, but keep an eye on her, and your instincts. Don’t settle with answers until you feel comfortable.

    When it comes down to your kids you don’t want to see them hurt so being hysterical and shaking is normal. I just am not the ones that deal well in situations like this with my kids. Always seems to happen when Earl isn’t home.
