We had an experience with William's Angel recently, he's been having heat related seizures, and needs medicine for them to stop. Also, needs O2/breathing treatments with them. We were at brother's Baseball game, and the alarm went off at the house, and I get a call from the police, I try to tell them to just leave it alone and let it go I'm sure it's nothing, but they were already headed out to check on it, he says he'll call me back when he gets to the house, so then Rob get's another call about the front door going off again, and then 5 min later another call about the back door going off. I tell him just ignore it it's the police searching the house, and I'm sure all it fine, he's about to leave to go tend to it. Then he makes another snide comment to me about it, so I grab William and head home to take care of nothing. Police man calls to say everything is fine at the house and it's nothing he could find. On the way home I realize that William's eyes look like he might be headed into a seizure (we've had 3 or 4 before). So I get home, house is fine, and he's in seizure mode so I put him on the couch and try to take care of him, hook up his pulse ox and o2 etc (which I have BECAUSE I"M HOME ALL BECAUSE of the ALARM), give him medicine. Anyway seizure lasts he drops o2 while on oxygen (but only for a second, and quickly recovers as long as he's on o2), so I call 911, and we go to hosp (only get o2 and suction at the hospital). And spend the next 6 hrs in the ER sleeping and recovering, and watching the Rangers Win :).
But the angel part is the alarm that started the whole thing was a HALLWAY alarm, the whole reason I was home around the medicine, O2, and pulse ox is because of the HALLWAY alarm. Nothing was in the HALLWAY that could have set it off, and it's pointed level with the ground to not pick up the dog, and the dog never sets it off. I'm convinced the more I think about it, William's Guardian Angel was playing with the alarm that day.
We now have O2, Pulse Ox (finger kind), O2 mask, Meds, NG Tube, Breathing Treatment, Neb kit, etc all packed on the wheelchair.
