Close call yesterday..

So I started off my day semi normal knowing that tomorrow (Friday) was the funeral of my great grandma. I am at work doing my whole Enterprise thing and i get a text message from my dad who left at 5 am that morning on a deep sea fishing trip. The message said.. "Your brother had a seizure at swim practice". He had NO reception out on the sea and got so lucky that got to me. My brother had a seizure when he was real young.. and once again last year and has been taking medicine ever since for it. This one was what is called a "grand maul" seizure which is one of the worst you can have. Well apparently he missed the day before in pills. So I call my mom who rushed over there and she said he was doing laps and had a seizure under water. Apparently a girl who was doing laps too just missed the turn at the wall and was straightening herself out when she saw my brother freaking out under the water. BY the time they had dragged him out, he had been under for over a minute. THANK it was a SWIM TEAM practice with good swimmers and people who knew CPR. they had to revive him until the paramedics came. Anyway, he is ok now and is out of the hospital after being in there for 24 hours. I left work as sooon as I heard to go see him in the hospital and at first he didnt even know who his mom was. He didnt recognize her. It was scary. It took longer to come out of it than the other time and that worried alot of people. But he is ok now. I just felt so bad for my dad because he didnt know whether his son was dead or alive the whole day because he had no reception. I can't even begin to imaginwe what that felt like. Kids are not supposed to go before their parents.

Just live life to the fullest guys and girls. Don't take life for granted and sure as dont be stupid about it. can take you away from this world in a heartbeat or someone you love. Leave no relationships frayed or broken, always tell the people you care about that you love them, and never forget that we are only human. We got EXTREMELY lucky this happened when it did and not while he was driving or worst yet, riding his motorcycle.

Anyway.. just needed to vent and share what I was feeling. Have a great day... and be safe.

that is very scary! i've been through several overdoses with my dad. He had a stroke because of it and it is a scary thing to witness. I'm very glad your brother is ok, make sure he takes his medicine like he is supposed to. That is part of the reason my mom is dead today. you never know what you have until it's gone. treasure your loved ones

Sorry to hear about that dude... glad everything turned out ok in the end.

One of my best friends was killed at work on Memorial Da about 2 1/2 weeks ago... I've worked with his wife for about 3 years now. He left behind his wife and 7 year old daughter. RIP Carl...

Gotta live life... never leave angry... and always take the chance to tell someone you care... never know when the last time you'll see them is.

man, I hope your bro gets well. Thank goodness for that girl. Did she pull him out or did she call for help? I nearly drowned when I was a kid and had to be revived. I still hate deep waters :eh:

She saw him.. the swim coach tried to pull him out, but she couldnt lift him because he was so heavy from the water he swallowed. So 2 guys from the swimteam rushed over to help. One Had jsut joined swimteam and the other was a big guy so they got him up fast. but he was under about 30-45 sec before anyone ever knew.

Man glad to hear he was able to recover and big shout out to those who helped him. So true on letting those who are close to you that you love them because there is always that one day when you're gonna wish you had.

Good thing someone knew CPR. I would recommend that everyone learn CPR. It could save someones life. We have recieved Army certification here at the DFAC where I work. Good stuff, glad your bro is going to be ok.

I'm so sorry to hear that had to happen, as a mother of a child that gets febrile seizures (when a fever gets too high too quickly) I can only imagine what your mother was going through. Thank goodness that he is OK, and hopefully won't skip a day of his meds anymore.
Scary thing.
