There have been two times that I checked on Eon in the middle of the night and thought he wasn't breathing. A gentle nudge was all he needed and he'd flinch and breathe and I thought maybe I'd imagined that he wasn't. Until last night. I woke with a start and went over and laid my hand on his chest. No movement. I slid my hand lower and still didn't feel or hear anything. So I gently shook him. Nothing. Shook him side to side harder and still nothing. Panicked, I picked him up and as I lifted him from the crib, he startled and loudly inhaled.
I held him the rest of the night and didn't sleep. Took him in to see the ped today who checked him. (He looks great!) The ped called the developmental ped at the Ds clinic and they recommended admitting him today for a full work-up. Only, because it's Friday, they wouldn't really do anything until Monday. Worried about secondary infections and medical screw-ups, I talked them into a home apnea monitor for the weekend and he'll be admitted Monday morning.
Terrifying! Please pray for peace for me and safety for him.
