Where do I even being?! We moved out of Az and to CO about a week ago. We have moved/lived his once before when my oldest was 1. At that time we had never head of something called altitude sickness. We went camping the first day or two once we got to CO. We went on something called pikes peak and its a big one. Aiden was breastfeeding at the time, so I knew something was wrong when he would feed and then it would all come right back out. Needless to say we got him off the mountain and called a urgent care and they told us all about altitude sickness. Aiden was find within a few hours of being off the big mountain.
Any how we knew that this might happen again when we moved again. Not like we where going to go up that mountain again but it is still a higher altitude then what they where used to. So Noah was acting a little sick we thought it was just that. Then a few days later he would wake up crying…. well that was when we saw the molars. We just kinda brushed it off and gave him some meds to help with the pain. Then the scare started. Thursday he slept all day and would not play peekaboo. If you knew my son you would know his all time favorite game is peekaboo. He would also sleep all day long. He woke up only to cry and then back to sleep again. Once again I thought it was from him teething. He did have a little cough but my kids drool to the back of their mouth. I decided that if he was like this one more day then I would take him to a dr/urgent care. So here I am Friday morning, my mother in law is here and Noah still acting sick. So we fine out where we can take him and off we go. My 3 kids, my mother in law and me, off to the urgent care. Once we got there they took his pulse ox and it was at 70. In case you don’t know, you should be at 90-100. And his heart rate was at 200! Again that should be at 100.
So they walked out of the room, came back and told me they called an ambulance! He need to go to the hospital right now! Lets just say I held it together until the paramedics, then the tears came. Worst off all I could not ride with him. I had to take my mother in law and my boys back to the house.
