I jus read the post about a mothers worst fear and was so sad and was brought to tears becuase it reminded me of my son. Hes 2 as of March 24th but I remember when he was 8 months old. My husand lost his job at Walmart Dc out of stupidity on his part and we decided to move from California all the way to Montana with my family becuase they got him a better job in the oil rigs. Before we left I heard my friends son jus died from SIDS. That was my biggest fear for my son in this story. Anyways We drove the whole 24 hours. The first 3 hours of the drive he cried non stop and wouldnt take anything to drink. He eventually slept and was fine. We got to the hotel that my parents met us at and went to bed. We woke up a few hours later because it was aleady 8am. I gave him water but he threw it all back up, luckily I was there to make sure he didnt continue to choke on it. My dad went to work and I decided to take the kids a bath with my mom. Water wakes him up yet he eventually was a limp noodle. I thought he was super tired so I finished and clothed him and my daughter. While my mom held him I heard him gasp for air and his lips turned blue. We called my dad and he told us to get him to the hospital. We woke up my husband and left. We got lost because my parents were new also. He slowly stopped breathing until my mom put her finger in his mouth and he sucked them. So we turned to go back to my dads work since he was fine. While there we made him a bed in the cart and shopped for 30 minutes. He woke up while my mom was talking to my dad and then my dad seen his face start to get red thinking he was constipated but he actually couldnt breathe at all. He yelled for me to go to the hospital but my husband was no where to be found and my moms friends husband offered to take me and as we ran to his car I seen my hubby already in the car ready to go so we hopped in with my dad in the back and drove. We were so lost and next thing I know it was like I was holding a baby doll in my arms. He completely stopped breathing. I screamed and cried and had to give him to my dad while my husand tried to calm me so we could find the hospital. My dad tried to push Jaydens tongue down jus to see if he could get him so air that way but all of a sudden 2 minutes later Jayden started sucking. They never told us what really happened to him but I didnt hold my baby for 2 weeks out of fear he would stop breathing in my arms again.
Thankfully my babyboy is big now and healthy as ever. I wish I knew what happened that day but the doctors in this small itty bitty town suck and never tell you anything. That horrible day scarred me for life to the point that ever chance I get when my kids are sleeping I check to see if they are breathing. Im thankful that he came back to us and is perfectly fine.
