Guess where we spent our day today? Yeah. It was a helluva day.
Rhett had a seizure this morning. He scared the living bejeebers out of me. I have seen nothing scarier, other than when he was overdosed and coded.
He was fine last night, he was running around everywhere. Then he slept for like 12 hours, and he woke up and started acting weird. He threw up, then glazed over, and was totally unresponsive. He was lying there making a clicking sound in the back of his throat, with his eyes wide open and staring right through me.
It felt like it lasted forever, but I don't think it was more than a minute or two. But during that time his right leg was twitching and he lost control of all of his bowels. It was so scary.
Just as I was going to call 911 he came out of it, but was really agitated. He ripped his oxygen off of his face and his feeding tube out, and clawed at his face like crazy. He acted like he didn't even know who I was.
Then it was like everything just clicked and he started sobbing and holding onto my neck saying "Mommy."
I called Andy and he came home to watch the other kids...(We have an extra one this week.) and I took Rhett up to PCMC. Drove 90 the whole way there.
We ended up spending about 10 hrs up there, and put Rhett through a battery of tests.
He has a UTI, and a viral infection as well as a fever. That combined caused the seizure. They had a really hard time getting the catheter in and he ended up bleeding like a son of a gun from his little pee pee. Now every time he pees he grabs his diaper and screams. Poor Baby.
He slept basically all day, and now is ready for bed again. I can't belive how much it took out of him.
I am ready for bed too.
Hopefully this doesn't set us back for his surgery.
