I have been trying to get Jadon out in the stroller as much as possible since we got it. We started out by just having him sit in the stroller while we were inside. Then we would hang out on the front porch in the mornings. Then we started walking. We would go literally a couple hundred feet one way and then come back and go a couple hundred feet the other way. Always being careful not to get too far from the house, just in case he needed something.
Today Daddy was feeling a little “cocked diesel” and thought that we would push the envelope and stretch the distance. We went further than we had ever gone before. We were almost beyond Thunderdome when I stopped just to check him and decided to do a quick suction. I think I must have hit his gums or the back of his throat because he was not happy after that. He started to change color and we were on a straight sprint back to the house. I left the stroller on the porch, snatched him up and got him started on a round of coughs.
We did a couple sets of coughs and then I held the bi-pap mask on his face for a minute and he was practically asleep. I laid him in his crib and attached his mask. He slept peacefully for the next hour and a half while I tried to catch my breath. I was sweating like crazy and sat in front of the fan as I gave thanks. It was truly a blessing that I didn’t pull something on the sprint back.
He is up watching Veggie Tales and yelling at the TV right now. All is good…
