Yup, it wasn't very much fun either.
This morning Rowan, Bria, and I went visiting. Rowan went into the kitchen in this home and when I came to get him, he told me that he ate 2 pink candies that he found. The thought crossed my mind that maybe it was someone's medication, but I quickly forgot.
We enjoyed lunch with our hostess, and had a good time visiting. Rowan was acting awfully tired though, for only being 12:00. Then when he tried to get up from his chair, he fell off. He had a HUGE fit over some cookies that were offered to him, so bad that our hostess offered to give them to him to take home; a whole plate full!
Rowan continued to scream at me all the way home that he wanted to eat his cookies, and obviously I wasn't going to let him have that many cookies!!
When we got home, we were only inside for a few minutes, and our hostess called. She was really concerned that Rowan had been acting so strange, and then mentioned the 'pink candies' that Rowan ate. I had totally forgotten about that already, and when she reminded me, I just got so scared, because if it was some dangerous medication, well, things could go really bad.
I called my mom to come over (she was at work) because Bria was sleeping. Then Rowan and I ran to the car, and drove to the Hospital.
The nurse and the Doctor that helped us were really nice. They figured out (through a phone call from our hostess) what medication it was. It was prescription sleeping pills! And Rowan had 2 of them!
We were asked to stay in the ER for about 6 hours (we actually left after 5 though) so they could make sure he wouldn't have any adverse reactions. They said most likely he would go back and forth from exhaustion to agitated. Were they ever right!! We were supposed to keep him awake, so my mom (she came later, because Bria woke up and was hungry), Keith (he came from work when my mom called him), and I took turns walking the hallways of the hospital with Rowan. He was sooooooo touchy one minute, and then just ready to fall over the next. It was INSANE!
He seems to be fine other than being so tired though, so we'll see how he is again in the morning.
PS. Please don't ask me who our hostess was. This was not her fault at all, and I should have been watching Rowan better.
