The Day From Hell

so it's 12:41 am and I'm praying that I will be able to lay down and sleep after the day I've had. At this moment, my husband and my baby Jaxon are at Primary Childrens in the Infant Unit. My son, Brennan and Steff's son are at my dear friend Leanne's for the night and Steff and I just got back to my house. You see Jaxon was diagnosed on Sunday with RSV at McKayDee hospital. Today after a very long and stressful day of trying to find the best treatment for Jaxon Steff and I were on our way to Primary Children's with Jaxon. She was sitting in the back seat watching him breathe making sure that he wasn't having too much trouble. I was driving. She said to me to watch the mile markers for her. I didn't think anything of it. The next thing I knew she said I needed to pull over. Then quickly she said that I needed to dial 911. I pulled over to the side of the road and threw my car into park... I hadn't even stopped yet. I tried to dial 911 but I somehow hit the wrong buttons and called someone else. I was shaking so bad. You see Jaxon had stopped breathing and my dear friend Stephanie was giving my precious boy CPR in the back seat of my car. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't even talk tot he operator. Steff took it from me and talked with her. A few minutes later she had him breathing again and the paramedics had arrived. They put me and Jaxon into the ambulance and rushed us to Primary. The funny thing is Jaxon started doing so much better after that. They admitted him because of his apnea episode. Ian very sternly convinced me that I needed to come home and get some rest because I hadn't slept in days and that I would be no good if J's hospital stay lasts longer than a day. He is currently sleeping in a double room on a too small bed, in his pepboys uniform. Thank GOD for the amazing people for my life. My best friend who saved my baby's life, My husband who got the scariest phone call of his life today and still made it to take care of me and my son... and friends like Leanne for making sure I didn't have to worry about my oldest in the midst of all this mess and for Nathan, Steff's boyfriend, who came to the hospital just to make sure we didn't need anything and to make sure that we were ok. I can't thank the Lord enough for having his hand in all of it. Please say a prayer for my baby that this was a one time episode and that he will be on the uphill on his way to getting better. I will update as soon as I can. Thanks!
