Default Bad day yesterday.

Got scared out of my wits yesterday. I had all the kids over for dinner and my little 2 year old grand daughter old went into a seisure (spell)?. This was a bad one in that I ended up doing CPR through her nose to get her breathing again. She had started to turn blue and the need for the CPR prior to the rescue unit getting here. Our local fire dept isn't real big big, but at least 8 responders showed up and several vehicles. The hospital said it was a fever induced seisure, however, we never saw a number over 100*. Hospital said it could have spiked just long enough to trigger the event. She had be running a very low grade fever for 2 days. She was not dehydrated either! Watching a 2 year old fade away like that as you are doing CPR is something that will be forever etched into my mind. This could be a one time event or something that could happen again with a fever. Hug your kids and grand kids today and I pray that nothing ever happens like this to any child!

Thanks TG, right now she is at the DR's getting a check up. I think she has a nasty flu at the very minimum. Only thing weird is a bit of staring off that she is doing, hopefully just because she is not feeling well??? Should know more later tonight. I get to watch her tomorrow for a few hours so I can get a good look at her. I just hope there is no repeat or lasting health issue! Still a bit concerned......

HM Sorry to hear that HM. I pray all ends up OK
I was a firefighter/EMS for 21 years & have numerous CPR calls
it always hit the hardest when a call came in for a child
even with all my years of doing it I can't emagine having to do it to my own. so Glad you know CPR I think everyone should know it. 1 day out of your year to learn it & you could save a life.
