Ugh, what a morning.
Jax had a weird puking/convulsing episode when I was taking him out of his car seat to go to the YMCA for his PT gymnastics. He went BANANAS and was shaking with vomit coming out his mouth and nose and then he was convulsing so hard he ripped right out of his seat and hit the seat in front of him. A man walking by saw it and yelled that he was calling 911. The Y staff came out to help and said they heard a child was seizing.
The fire trucks and paramedics got there and Jax was just crying and clenching to me. They checked him over and he was hysterical in the ambulance so they said I had the choice of driving him myself to the ER or them taking him.
Since he was stable, I took him myself to keep him calm. All the fire fighters and Y staff were playing with Brady and trying to clean up the truck from the puke. They're so nice. A fire fighter was *thisclose* to driving my truck because I was shaking and crying. I pulled it together and it was fine.
The ER counseled with our pediatrician and a neurologist and believed that he was stable enough to go home and see a Neuro for an EEG in the next week or so to check for seizure activity. That was a fun 3.5 hrs in the ER with two 2 yr olds by myself. Thank goodness I always have toys, snacks and the nurses provided a Blues Clues DVD!
I personally think he was choking on vomit and panicked, but obviously I have to let a Neuro prove that. I think that since someone saw this episode, it scared them. I know it's hard for other people to see these sorts of vomiting episodes that get violent, but I will admit, this one was quite severe.
Jax has been having more frequent morning vomits lately, but the "episode" type of vomits haven't been around too much. I hope they don't continue.
I'm ready to let this day end!
