You get the picture, but wait; then, I am told about secondary drowning which I've never heard about. Panic! Google! Panic again! Is my kiddo gonna survive the night or drown in his sleep? I had to check him 10 times before finally going to sleep at 1 am. Did I mention, I had the monitor volume all the way UP for the first time ever? Oh, and I was up checking him every few hours throughout the night... I'm a tired mama today, who is still a little stressed out (enter Stress Away essential oil)!
#MyBoy has remained himself, showing no signs of troubled breathing, fatigue or other odd behavior, since incident one. So, here's the dilemma... am I being too confident in my parenting by avoiding a trip to the doctor? Should I be "better safe than sorry" and take him in for overnight observation even though we are safely past the 24 hour mark? What would you do, if you're a mom and in my shoes?
Use the comments to share your stories or give me feedback about what you would do in this situation. I look forward to the dialog because I'm only a mom of one, yet the eldest child of 6. I don't panic often, and I typically choose trust in my intuition.
