Today was crazy scary. Emily was at school, Scott was at work and it was just me and Brody at home. We were settling down after lunch and I had some watermelon so was feeding little bites to him. I'm sitting on our couch and he is standing toddling around next to me and the next thing I know he just has a look on his face, I knew something was wrong. I got on the floor and looked to see that he was breathing. I'm shaking and he is NOT breathing. I pick him up, turn him over with his chest/rib area on my knee and slap him five time of the back, hard. He took a breath when I pulled him up to look at him. I just couldn't believe what just happened. I was shaking, freaking out, but my instincts kicked in. For my job I have to be CPR certified and I'll forever be grateful for that. Who ever thinks you'll have to do something like this let alone on your own child!
I PLEASE strongly encourage everyone to take a CPR class or even research online how to perform it in the crazy event of something like this! I truly believe it saved my son's life!
