Ok, so my son was acting weird on Monday and Tuesday, and on Tuesday his daycare took his temp and it was 101.6 in his ear. They called me and told me I shoudl take him to the ped - so I called and made appointment, and left. We got to the ped (after walking 1.5miles in HOT weather), and DS had a seizure (OMG scariest thing EVER!). I freaked out, couldn't call my ex - since he was taking the NYS bar exam Tuesday and Wednesday this week. I called his brother instead, so that if Ex called his brother, he would know that he needed to call me ASAP.
So we were transferred by ambulance to childrens hospital, and as soon as we got there, I was still on the stretcher holding ds, he had another seizure. Again, scariest thing in the entire world. I was being wheeled through the ER very fast and there were tears just streaming down my face. I looked like a mess - and I was one! Then of course they took ds and surrounded him with people to try and get an IV in him, and I couldn't see him and had no idea what was going on - it was awful. I was crying, and thank god, the EMT from the ambulance was telling me what was going on, and told me when his seizure stopped. It was terrible. Then they took his temp and it was 105. OMG!
Anyway, so then I was on the phone talking to ex's sister and brother telling them where I was so they could relay the message once Ex got out of the bar exam. Ugh. BAD timing!!
So then we spent the night - they thought it was most likely a fibroid seizure (fever related and normal in his age group - but still absolutely terrifying), but since he had 2 they wanted neurology to see him the next morning. DS of course felt like crap and so he didn't sleep at all that night, and therefore neither did I. I couldn't even lay next to him since I didn't fit in the crib and there wasn't a bed that we could lay in together.
So I thought that as soon as the Bar exam was over, ex would get back to his house (he couldn't take his phone with him since its against the rules - so he didn't have a phone all day) and call me, and then come relieve me for a while so that I could nap. WRONG! He went out and GOT A DRINK! Umm....wait - your CHILD is in the HOSPITAL and you go our for a DRINK without CALLING!! Don't even start to make excuses for him either - you can't convince me EVER that all of Manhattan is void of pay-phones and people with phones he could use. Seriously. Thats just not true. Ugh. So then I finally talk to him, AFTER we'd been discharged, and told him that I needed him to come get us so that we could leave (I didn't have a carseat since we left directly from the Dr's office, and I didn't get home at all to get one, and all my friends with babies don't have seats that fit DS).
Ex said that he'd be right there, and he got there pretty quick. Then I was telling him what was going on, and he was like, "Oh, I'm glad I got that drink since its not like you got discharged hours ago and were just waiting for me. I would have just been here waiting around until we got the papers."
Umm...NO! You could have come to SEE YOU BABY!! Who had 2 SEIZURES the day before. AAARRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT cool! I'm so mad.
Ok, I'm done.
