The responsibility of little ones' lives relies on the shoulders of those who raise them.
Wednesday was an extra hard day being a mom.
At about 11 am, Breelee bumped her mouth on an end table that she was walking along side of.
That's been the new thing. Standing. Walking along furniture. Taking 1 or 2 steps.
I mean, she's almost 1 after all!
So, when she bumped her mouth, I immediately picked her up and held her.
Breelee has a tendancy to hold her breath when she's crying. (Brennan did this too).
It usually results in her passing out, and then almost immediately afterwards she comes to...takes a deep breath, and then usually cries.
Well, that didn't happen today.
She was holding her breath, so I blew in her face. She turned blue for about 5 seconds. This has happened before. And normally she passes out and then starts breathing normally again...and she may be out for a few seconds, but then she starts crying or comes out of it.
Nothing I did was stimulating her. She was still not responding.
It is such a scary thing. I would love to never repeat that day again. It's hard enough when she passes out and comes right to, but that non-responsive state is a sickening feeling.
She's back to herself...trying to climb up the stairs in the house...pulling every piece of tupperware out of my cabinets. She did pass out again yesterday from crying, but just for a few seconds...and she was tired at that point too. Again, she's back to what I would consider normal!
It will be nice to see the neurologist and have it confirmed that she is ok. Our pediatrician said that she has sent more babies to the neurologist for these breath holding spells than most people realize...and most of the time it is a fluke thing. A phase they grow out of. (Like Brennan)
We are praying that this is a fluke thing!!! Thank you for praying with us. We believe God has given us a happy, healthy baby girl...and we will keep trusting Him through this all.
