    hey Angela! I talked to Stacy and have her email and phone number. Shoot me an email anytime and I can pass that along. She said in her experience some doctors had seen it/said it is common, others no so wanted to send them to a specialist. She would be great to talk to and sounds like has been down this road.

    Thinking of you!


  2. A friend of mine’s little one has the holding-breath spells as well. Their doctor concluded it was because he has low iron, so he now takes vitamins with iron, which has helped tremendously. Maybe that’s a possibility for you as well? My friend was scared as well, even to leave him alone in fear that he would hit his head or something if he passed out. Now, she’s not afraid, and he’s been fine. Hope yall find some relief and answers!

      Thank you so much! Actually, I wondered if he was low on iron. So last week I started giving him vitamins with iron and more iron-rich foods. He has done much better and hasn’t had a seizure! I appreciate you sharing what your friend went through. It helps to know that!!

  3. Prayers said for your little one. I might just have to try your recipe it looks yummy.

      Thank you so much. I’m sure he’ll be fine, but it’s no fun to go through. Yes, I hope you’ll try the recipe! It is delicious!

  4. My kids LOVE puddle-jumping still (and my eldest is 9!). So much fun. Your fruit salad looks delicious – perfect for summer.
    Praying for you for the scan on Tuesday, that sounds stressful.
    Have a happy birthday and anniversary, and a wonderful 4th!

      Oh that is so fun! I think most kids love puddle-jumping! Thank you so much for your sweet words and for your prayers. I am so encouraged! I will keep everyone updated.

    Hey you should talk to Stacy Regenitter. Her son Ben had the exact same thing happen. Breathing spells while crying then he would pass out. Scared her so bad. I know she would love to share and would be a good resource. Let me know if you want her email – email me

    Thinking of you as you seek answers this week!

    Hello! I am so sorry to hear about your son. I totally understand what you are going through. My son has breathing apnea (his brain *forgets* to breathe). It is super scary! When he was an infant he was on a breathing monitor for the first few months he was at home (he was a preemie and in the NICU on a breathing machine before he came home). I frequently check his breathing throughout the day and have a hard time sleeping at night fearing that he might *forget* to breathe during the night. Turning blue is super scary! I hope you find answers soon as to what is going on. It turns out that my son has asthma and that contributes to his breathing issues. We have an inhaler for him. Good luck! Sending prayers your way.
