Thanks to those of you've who've noticed us missing and wondered if we are ok. The answer is yes and no. The biggest reason that we've been missing is that we just went on a two week vacation, but let's rewind to the day before we were supposed to leave. I was talking to a friend on the phone. I picked up Ollie when he was getting fussy. I was holding him, trying to calm him when he had a seizure.
My world stopped.
One moment he was fine, and the next his body jerked to a weird angle and went rigid. His eyes rolled back, and he stopped breathing. I screamed for Larry while Ollie turned purple. I know it sounds dramatic, but I had no idea what was going on, and I felt like I was watching his life slip away and there was nothing that I could do. After about what felt like an eternity, but was probably a minute, Ollie started breathing again, but went limp and would not respond to anything.
Larry called 911, but then we decided we could probably get the the hospital faster if we drove ourselves rather than wait for an ambulance. We dropped a poor, bewildered Creed off at Tai & Kersten's down the street (thanks for running out to meet us at our car to get him).
At the hospital Ollie finally started acting a little more like himself. They decided to do a scan to make sure he didn't have a brain injury. This was the saddest scene that I have seen in a very long while.
So far, so good!
