Never a dull moment around here...
Cameron was jumping on the couch this afternoon and we aren't sure if he fell off(He said he didn't) but he suddenly started crying and saying his neck hurt. He was laying on the floor and couldn't/wouldn't move it. He wouldn't stop crying and when we tried to move him, it got worse, so we made the dreaded call to 911. They came very quickly and suddenly there was a fire truck outside our door and Fire fighters and paramedics stomping through our house, over the toys and couch cushions to where Cameron was laying. To be on the safe side, they strapped him to one of those boards you always see on E.R., and took him in his first (mine too) ambulance ride to the hospital. They did some tests and took X-rays, which were hard to do because it hurt him to move at all. They concluded that they "don't know" what it is. Great. It could just be a pulled muscle or spasm. So after much crying and a neck brace, we are home again. He is medicated and we will see how he is in the morning. He was a trooper throughout. Here is an actual conversation in the ambulance.
Paramedic"hey, buddy, do you want to be a firefighter when you grow up?"
Cameron "No, I want to be Batman"
paramedic"OHHH, can I be Robin?"
Cameron "No, My Daddy is going to be Robin!"
Cute, even strapped to a board...
