Took 20 Minutes To Wake Child Up…Mom Describes Scariest Moment of Her Life


THIS was my evening, this was the scariest moment I’ve had to imagine, THIS is severe heatstroke.

There is nothing scarier than not being able to wake your baby up. THIS is clear proof a child doesn’t need to be in the sun to get heat stroke.

It took us 20 minutes to wake her up, when ambulance came, they came with investigators because they didn’t know what to expect as did I. This was proof how fast things change.

Anastasia put herself for a nap, I had no idea how hot her bedroom was until I went to wake her up soaked in sweat, red face, boiling and unable to wake her for 15 minutes, ambulance arrived faster then I could have ever imagined and took her sugars which were 1.2 and should be above 4, they administered sucrose and in minutes she started crying clearly scared.

No it is not my fault this happened to her but it is hard not to blame yourself, this is a lesson learnt & hopefully other parents can take something from this and make sure you are checking the rooms in your house because they can be as dangerous as a hot car.

Still I’m shook and I can’t imagine what would have happened if I didn’t go check on her. We definitely had god on our side yesterday and I am thankful for emergency services and Jay who came as fast as possible to keep me together. ❤️
