Guardian Angel

Bug has a Guardian Angel, and her name is Taylor.

He had one event. One very bad, very scary event last night. And he was in the bathtub.

I had left the room for a minute when Tay started screaming Seizure. I didn't hear her, Glenn didn't hear her. She tried to get his head above the water and because he was in full T/C, she couldn't.

The second time she screamed louder and Glenn got Bug out of the water. He was still in seizure and not breathing. When he is in full T/C, he will go blue. It's been a while since we have seen that, but coupled with the fact that he was underwater for, who knows, how long (not more than a minute we think) we weren't sure what to think.

I got to Bug as he was starting to come out of it. He took small, short breaths and then, when he was fully out of it, he coughed and began breathing more regularly. I expected he would cough up water but he didn't. That meant, he didn't get any in his lungs.

When a person is submerged, their throat closes off to prevent water from entering, if you couple that response with his seizure then he wasn't getting much of anything in.

Tay was very upset. She thought she should have done more. But what she did, was save her brother. When Glenn told her that she was a Hero, and she beamed.

His Anisocoria was bad after the seizure but he was fine. Mom and Dad aged ten years but you wouldn't know he had a close call at all. He is active and energetic, eating and soiling diapers like crazy. Playing with anything and everything and aside from the runny nose, perfectly Bug.

Oh my goodness; Tay is a major hero.

Love and hugs to all!
