First E.R. Visit

Early in the morning on the 2nd of January, I woke up to me sister in law saying "He stopped breathing". I had no clue who she was talking about. I could just hear some conversation going on down stairs. So, I hurry up and get downstairs to come to find out that Emerson had been running and slipped and hit his head pretty hard. He immediately started crying but then seconds later went to get some air and stopped breathing and started to go blue. That is when we called the doctor's office and then 9-1-1. They sent an ambulance up the mountain to take a look. The whole time that they were on their way Emerson was super groggy and cuddly. He was having cold sweats and his lips were blue for a while. It was really a scary moment in our lives.
Once the paramedics got there, he was starting to liven up and be happy. They did a quick check and recommended that we go to the hospital. They assured us that it is probably nothing, but since we were 30 minutes from the hospital on freshly snow cover mountain roads, it was safer to just be sure that everthing was alright. So, we decided to go down. Emerson and Jason rode in the back on the ambulance, since I would get motion sick going down.

Once we were at the hospital, Emerson was back to his normal self. He was happy as can be and wanting ro run and visit all the other paticents there. He got his check up and they said he looks good. They just wanted us to keep an eye on him and if he did something out of the normal we needed to come back. So we went home. The rest of the day we just took it easy and watched Emerson. He never did anything else to make us think something was wrong, but it sure was a scary day!
