This evening in June is a night I will never forget and was the hardest a mother had to experience. my son suddenly became unwell and his breathing suddenly changed to him gasping for breath. His heart was racing, his temperature was high and as a mother I felt helpless...so I called 999. The female operator was amazing, very calm and reassuring..meanwhile my son was getting worse!
After approx. 3mins an ambulance car was at our house...Craig the paramedic took over the care of my son. He knew straight away what the problem was and gave my son the best treatment available. I know Craig saved his life and for that I'm truly grateful and thankful. I would also thank the paramedics who helped Monday when he suffered another anaphylaxis shock just after arriving at work. My son is now waiting to see a specialist and hopefully we will get to know what caused this. Once again huge thank you to Craig and paramedic team who I believe saved me from losing my son.
