Kids Will Always Keep You on Your Toes

We had a few scares the last few weeks.  Ziggy was at camp and they called us to tell us he chipped his tooth on a ramp and that they would send us a picture of it.  They said he was ok but if we wanted to send him to a dentist nearby they would.  We were on the way to Zion for a mini camping trip and were not sure what to do.  Hid normal dentist said he should be ok if he's not feeling any pain and sensitivity by the end of the day, he can stay but if he isn't feeling ok that we could bring him in the next day.  We spoke with Z and he said he was ok but it was sore but he was ok.  So the dentist said we can wait til end of day and decide.  We were on the way to Zion so we kept driving.  When we arrived to the campsite, it was just before 5pwhen the dentist was about to close and he called us to tell us he was in pain and wasn't sure if he should stay or go.  He didn't want to leave but he was not doing well because he couldn't eat anything all day.  So I spent the next half hour on the phone between him and the dentist and finally just decided to be on the safe side and take him in the next morning.  So we turned right back around and drove another 8 hours to pick him up.  By the time we arrived, it was 1a and we had been driving since 9a the day before.  We were so exhausted and had to drive another 3 hours home!

We took him to the dentist the next morning and they attached the piece that was broken.  He felt a little better and we took him back to camp.  There went out camping trip.. we lost our campsite and would have been the first time we did something just the two of us on our own and had so many plans to hike and go further than last time because we would be without the kiddos LOL.  Oh well, it wasn't meant to be =)

Then a few nights ago, we were at Etnies skatepark with friends and just when we were wrapping up the night, we saw Rocket crying at the bottom of the bowl..he had somehow fallen and no one had seen him fall.  He just lay there crying but he got up and was fine.  We all went to the car and he was normal packing up.  We went to In-N-Out to meet their friends and when we got there, he was out of it and breathing heavy and freaking out.  We had no idea what was wrong.  I think he had an anxiety attack but he suddenly said he couldn't see anything.  We swung our hands in front of his face and he didn't flinch!  We got so scared we packed up and headed straight to the emergency room.  He started throwing up in the car and we got so scared.  He kept saying he was scared and couldn't see anything.  We found some hole in the wall little hospital was all we could find nearby but they took him in quick.  By the time we went in, he was able to see.  The doctor checked him out and said he showed no signs of neurological symptoms and he was going to be ok but just to observe him for concussion or some other head injury symptoms.  He scared the heck out of us!  He didn't answer questions correctly on the way home and just kept wanting to sleep and we started getting worried but I think he was just tired from a long day outside and it was not 1am.  By the time we got home, he seemed to be a little better..I helped him shower and once he was out he was normal.  What a relief!!!

Anyway, just a random post about how kids have you on your toes always.  Never a dull moment and some crazy scares they put us through hahahhaa. Super glad they were both ok.
