Scariest Moment...

So I think I had the scariest moment of my entire life tonight. Honestly. I was trying to think of a moment that was worse and I could not think of one. I'm kind of getting shaky just thinking about it again...
Tonight, we went over to our friends house, the Blodgett's, to eat dinner and look at their new baby goats (Woody and Jessie) that were born last night. We were going to eat dinner and show Dallin the babies. Jeff had to leave for a little bit for a missionary meeting. While he was gone, the kids decided they wanted to go jump on the tramp for a minute. They had done this before and are always really careful, so I let Dallin go out too. They also have one of those net things that go around the tramp so they can't fall off. So I put Dallin on the tramp, and decide I better go get my shoes. I go inside the house, and as I look out the window, and see Dallin go down in sort of a belly flop and whip back his neck and hit his chin. I run outside and hear Dallin crying- not his normal cry, but the one that says "I'm hurt bad". Like I said, they have a net around, so Dallin starts walking towards the opening in the net to get to me. As I'm trying to get him out, all of a sudden his whole body goes limp and his eyes rolled back in his head. I think that was the most panicked I have ever been in my life. I couldn't get him out because he was stuck in the stupid net and I thought my baby was dead. I started screaming for help and Brent and Chantelle started running out. After a few seconds, I finally get him free and he comes too again. I was shaking and bawling and had no clue what to do. We took him inside and got him calmed down and ended up taking him down to Kanab to the emergency room. Luckily, things seem to be ok. The doctor thinks that he passed out because of shock. Tonight, we're supposed to wake him up every two hours (which is why I'm up right now) and check to see if he's responsive.
I don't think anybody has a clue how scary this kind of thing is until it actually happens to you. I didn't. My heart sincerely goes out to every mother who has lost a child, or has had an accident that's a scary one. I don't know how you do it. I'm so grateful for my son. I love him so much. I'm so glad that things look like they are ok...

Oh my goodness, Jenna! How scary! I know my heart nearly skips a beat every time Kami falls off the bed (jumping, of course) or something. Luckly she's never been hurt too badly. Especially not enough to pass out. I'm so glad he's okay!

Jenna, that's insane! I'm glad he's alright too, but knowing you and your family, I'm sure he's a tough kid. Whew.

Thanks for your comment earlier, it made me feel good. I'm all for some boiled Isaac.

Hey to the Corry family. I knew Jeff at SUU forever ago. While my kids were asleep I did some blog surfing and came across your blog. You have a beautiful family. Happy late birthday Jeff and happy anniversary, marriage is the best (as I am sure you know)
