I had to give mouth to mouth to my baby today
He had a mild fever and it just spiked suddenly this morning while I was changing his diaper. He went into a seizure and started choking on his vomit. His entire head turned blue. It was the worst thing Ive ever seen! I cant get that image out of my head! I am still shaken up! DH called 911 when I was giving him breaths and he went to the hospital in an ambulance. DH stayed home because we do daycare together and had a house full of kids and waited until their parents picked up.
We just happen to have our CPR class this Saturday. BOY am I glad I have taken years of CPR! Somehow it all just came back to me. At first I did freak out. Im sure on the 911 tape you can hear me in the background.Something clicked in my head to calm down. When I was giving him breaths he vomited in my mouth and then started breathing. I then turned him to his side and he was out of it for a while. I cant believe how many things go through your head while this is happening! Its like a life flashing before your eyes thing. And I was asking myself questions like is he going to make it? Am I doing this right? Why is the ambulance taking so long? Im sure it was just a couple minutes but it seemed like he wasnt breathing FOREVER!
If any of you have experience with febrile seizures or any seizures please share! Im still trying to figure out the alternating the fever reducing meds. I started with motrin and then four hours later tylenol. Then I think im supposed to give him motrin again in four hours. The pharmasist I talked to and the nurse at the hospital told me two different things...ugh. The nurse pretty much said I could give both around the same time which didnt sound right to me.
