From the Screaming Boy’s Mom
Yesterday (October 10th) was a complete nightmare for me and my son. My son was taken from school to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation because of an incident at school.
Long story short, he had to be restrained several times, and you could hear him screaming from emerge. As his mother, I was a wreck, but there were 5 people who blew me away with their kindness. First, the security guard – thank you for being there with my son and talking to him trying to calm him. There was also a male nurse who was always there whenever I had a question, needed help, or just needed them to make things move a little faster. I believe the other nurse was the head nurse who would gently move me aside when things were getting out of control, and she would take control. It removed SO much stress just knowing she had control and I had a few minutes to rest. The other two were paramedics who took my son to the hospital. Never in my life, have I met such caring people. Once the doctors had control of my son, they came to me to make sure I was okay mentally. They explained to me what happened and kept reassuring me that everything would be okay. They literally made me realize it was okay to cry in that situation.
Later that day, I guess they brought another patient to the hospital and they came to check on me and my son to say hi and see how we were doing. Sometimes when we look around, all we see is the negative. And yesterday was a complete disaster for me, but it honestly restored my faith in humanity. We have such caring, beautiful people in this world, and they deserve to be recognized. I wish I knew their names just so they can get the recognition they deserve, but hopefully they will see this and know who I am and how much I appreciate everything they did for us.
PS. My son is perfectly okay! Hes taking the day off from school to relax and spend some much needed time with his father❤
