My 10 year old saved my life!
I got out the bed early in the morning. I had a very bad headache that didn't feel right. My son went downstairs and pushed the medical button on the alarm keypad and the ambulance was there (my house) within a matter of minutes. When I got to the hospital, they called everybody but my doctor. I had to be put in a comma. I remember everything except being put in a comma and surgery. Apparently if my son hadn't called EMS I would not have lived.
