JOURNALTrip to the ER
posted on 07/24/2008
So, Alexander and I had quite a morning yesterday. He'd been running a fever overnight and around 6:30am, he had a febrile seizure. It was quite scary for me especially since I was home alone with him. (Dan had left early that morning for a 6am flight.) I called 911 and we had great response (3 police officers, 4 paramedics, and the 2 EMTs). They quickly got us to the hospital and Alexander was treated right away. Turns out he had a viral infection that we didn't know about. We thought the fever was related to the mosquito bite he had on his forehead (based on the previous mosquito bite on his face).
All is well now. The whole thing was definitely harder on me than on Alexander.
