Slightly Absent But Still Here!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with U.S. Cybertek, Inc.

So some of you have probably noticed that I have been totally absent from AR for a couple of days. Do you want to good news or the bad news first?

Well, it's the weekend so I'll start with the good news! ;)

The Good News:

I'm fine, and I will be back to blogging regularly very soon. I'm just taking a little down time for family.

The Bad News:

The reason I have been absent from AR is that this weekend my 4 year old little girl had a seizure. She was hopping over a couch arm slipped and bonked her head on the carpet. Paramedics were called, (You guys were fantastic, thank you!), a visit to the ER was made and a CT scan was done. The CT scan came back completely clean and she is home and doing great, but I don't remember the last time I was that scared or prayed that hard.

So the long and short of it is this: I'm taking a little down time until I'm 250% positive that my little girl is ok, but I'll be back with a vengeance once she is doing fine. ;)

Phly, Glad she's okay and definitely your priority should be where it is! 

When Miss Bad Manners came out to play and you didn't... suspected you were busy elsewhere... but just hoped you and your family had done a long weekend road trip!

Let it be know that you were absolutely missed these past few days. But also let it be known that your little girl is soooooo much more important than anything you might have missed by not being here.

Take care of that little cutie and come back soon with the good news of her full recovery.

Whew, I'm glad your little girl is OK. I did the same thing when I was 5, chasing after my brothers. I fell, hit my head and konked out. My brothers, who were babysitting me, just stood there looking at me until I woke up. I'd like to say I didn't suffer permanent damage, but I can't be too sure :)

Oh gosh what a horrifying experience. Thank goodness she's OK. I've had a few scares with my two little boys, but nothing like that. Prayers were answered.

Whew!  Wow, great news.  I totally know what that feeling would be like!  Bill and I were trying to figure out if you were ok!  In fact, we already purchased our plane tickets, and Perry Mason was called...

Thank you everyone for your support, kind words and well wishes! ;) Embry is doing fantastic! ;) She has been telling everyone that she got to play with the ambulance-para guys (the paramedics) and go to the hospital where she let the doughnut take her picture (the CT scan). She is also totally attached to the bear the hospital gave her, who's name she keeps changing . . . I believe it's Elf today.(It was Woods yesterday.)

After talking with the doctors, and doing some independent research to confirm it, the general consensus was that she had an episode of hypoxia. That is where the body rapidly becomes oxygen deprived for some reason or another and then basically hits the restart button. They think that in addition to bumping her head that she was scared enough that she simply forgot to breathe, resulting in hypoxia and the following very mild seizure. Incredibly scary, but not life threatening in the least. Thank Goodness! In fact Embry was playing ball with one of paramedics not more than 5 or 6 minutes after it happened. (They showed up in just over 3 minutes! I guess Boise is a good place to live if you have an emergency!) So things are getting back to normal here on the home front, finally!

Once again thanks! And I hope to be back posting regularly as of today. ;)

Family first - always.   They are what is important in life.  I am glad your little girl is okay.   I went through a similar experience with my niece - she actually turned blue before starting to breath again.   She did grow out of it though (thank heavens).

Diane - Thanks! ;) It's just so completely terrifying when a child is hurt or doing something that can not be readily explained. I'm so glad that your niece grew out of it! I'm hoping that Embry never does anything like it again, because once was more than enough!

Suesan - Thanks. :) I think that all the prayers have really helped because she is up and doing fantastic! Yesterday she finally decided that she was ok enough to go out shopping with MeMe' (grandma) all by herself. The fact that she feels comfortable enough to go somewhere with out Mommy, tells me that she is completely back to normal. ;)
