Today I was supposed to head over to Pensacola, Florida for a few hours, but it didn’t work out so Demon cub (my 16yo son) and I took off to a nearby town to do some event shopping to include several stops.
1. Unexpected stops-
a. TLC Vapes- because you can never have enough flavor for your vape pen. Demon was trying flavors out I bought a new battery that has Alabama on it ROLL TIDE! While he was chilling with the guy who owns the place I went next door
b. A & D Apparel – adult store, more vape pen stuff, Body jewlery I could have been there a while if not for demon waiting for me.
2. Office Depot, picked up lanyards and name badges for DDAB 2014
3. Unexpected stops part 2
a. Whataburger because Demon cub was starving. We laughin having good mother/son bonding before our last stop of Walmart but then I remeber I saw a halloween store.
b. Halloween store- okay another place I could have shopped for hours, but I ran across a display of Sons of Anarchy Items and started tossing stuff in my hand basket. Didn’t care patches, ring, Tshirt… Then I began shopping corsets because well, I love wearing corsets. So I am trying them on and Demon is supposed to give his opinion, I called him around because I wasn’t fastening them all the way just enough to makesure they would fit. He didn’t answer, but I saw him through a crack and called his name again and next thing I know he drops the hand basket and takes off sprinting in front of the store…being a mom all I think is WTF and take off aftter him. IN that time I hear shouting there is a child choking. Outside the front of the store in the parking lot this woman is in a panic trying to help but not doing it the right way so I pulled Demons’ CPRE and First Responder card out of his wallet as he takes the girl and flips her over and begins trying ot help the right way. This woman wasn’t the mother and suddenly another lady and I are like whose child is this? No answer until a man finally replies mine, he is on the phone calling the mother thankfully another lady called 911 …black hair lady and I both notice a child is not just choking but something else going on. Lay her down the ground and she starts performing mouth to mouth. The girl begins to whimper so she stops thenthe baby’s head flops and she turns blue again in short time this time get her on her side because we aren’t sure what is going on. Then the heads child is flopping and my natural instinct is to shove my hands under her head to keep it from beating againist the concrete and thats how I stayed for 10 min while another lady gave her mouth to mouth as she never came to and was not breathing.
The paramedics take over and other lady and I stand up and watch. Suddenly I look down and realize I am semi exposed standing outside in the parking lot. I look at lady “Going to go put my shirt back on”
Come back outside and we tell the paramedics what we did to aid until they got there.
It was only later, after Demon cub and I am back in the car headed to house because neither of us felt like going to walmart. “Well, I totally just proved I have no issue with public nudity he starts laughing. Then I said “you know what else its funny the 3 people who took over and really helped that poor baby were tatted and pierced …just go to show…you never should judge a book by it cover….
Then we pull up to the house and I am like coming down from aderline rush and am like am I seeing things…rub my eyes a little it’s still there …yes my Angel Cubs car is sitting in the front yard. ..I haven’t seen her in a month I couldn’t get in the house fast enough before I throw my arms around her. She said surprise and happy early birthday!!!! My birthday is Tuesday.
My babies may be 18, 16 and almost 15 but I want to hold them tight to me tonight. Holding a 3yo in my hands who isn’t breathing has an impact whether you know them or not…. I sit here tonight wondering if she is okay as they think she was actually having seizures and probably choking on her tongue more then anything. I will never know …
