About 5 yesterday I was stadning in the kitchen putting dinner together. Well then I hear Rach say "Look, Mommy, look what Issac's got!" I turn around and there he is with a bottle of prescription meds that he's spitting out! I saw him spit out 1 whole pill and part of another. Then I swept my finger through his mouth to see of anymore was in there. I look at the bottle and it was my promethazine (phenegran) from last year. I didn't even know it was on the floor...we keep all our meds on top of the fridge. At first I couldn't figure out how he got it opened but I tried it and it's pretty easy...may just throw those away now.

Anyways...

Call Poison Control and told her I don't think he ingested a whole one...there were originally 10 in the bottle, and there's 4 now...I took 3 last year and Jerm took 1, which left 6, which accounts for the 2 I saw him with. She said to watch for agitation, drowsiness, and seizures. I was so worried, I almost took him in anyways, but we waited and kept close watch on him. Jerm kept him awake and played hard with him because he looked like he was getting ready to go to sleep (not sure if it's cause he hadn't had a nap or if it was the meds). I think we kept him awake for 1.5 hours, then he fell asleep. Every few minutes I'd shake or poke him to make sure he's rouse, and he did. He slept for about an hour then woke up. He was back to his old self thank goodness! He had been grouchy, but I imagine it's because those pills taste so nasty (imagine biting into an aspirin ) Ugh I never want to go through that again!

I was VERY surprised a few weeks back when Ryan was able to open some of my medicine so easily - I thought it was child proof but not for 3 year olds apparantly.

I am glad everything was ok

Very scary! When I had Justin, I had my darveset on the counter in the kitchen and when I woke up one morning, later than usual, I realized Brandon hadn't woke me up. When I went into the kitchen, among cleaning products he had all over the floor and in the dishwasher, the bottle of pills was open, with some that looked like they had been put in his mouth and spit out. I accounted for all of them, but watched him like a hawk. I must not have put the lid on all the way the night before.
