Twelve hours ago he didn’t even have the strength to cry… much less smile….
It all started at 10 o clock last night when we heard him coughing on the monitor. No biggie.. he does it all the time. I turned over to glance at the video monitor and saw him throwing up so much he looked like a fountain. It was just spraying straight up. Aaron jumped out of bed to get him and in the mean time it happened one more time. By the time Aaron got there, Miles wasn’t breathing, and was still trying to throw up. Aaron screamed for me and I came running. After a few shakes and hits on the back he started breathing again but didn’t stop throwing up. Just over and over again he threw up. He was so pale. His eyes were glazed over and every time he threw up he choked and couldn’t breath. The look in his eyes was terrifying. His color quickly turned from white to grayish. I pulled some stuff together so we could head to the hospital and Aaron called his parents. His dad rushed right over and helped Aaron give Miles a blessing. He sat with us for awhile and got us calmed down.
Poor Miles was so tired.. His body was exhausted and it just kept going, throwing up every couple of minutes. He whole body would convulse when he would throw up.
The hardest part was that he couldn’t even cry, just looked at us wanting us to help him.
We decided to try to let him sleep to see how he handled it. He slept and only threw up every 30 minutes to an hour. He refused to eat, so we decided if he didn’t stop throwing up for at least an hour, or if he didn’t eat within the next hour we’d head to the hospital. Thankfully he started eating right after that.. (very slowly) and slept peacefully.
Aaron held him while he slept. We both stayed awake to watch him and make sure he was okay. Wow it was a long night….
I think I slept for about 2 hours.. Aaron didn’t sleep at all..
This morning Miles was all smiles in his swing..
It was so good to see!!!
