This every mom’s worst nightmare! Tiffany Rivera noticed something strange about her 10-year-old son. On April 14th, 2016, she shared her story on Facebook that has since gone viral…
1“On Monday, March 21st, 2016 my 10-year-old son, Jaden, was riding his bike without a helmet. While riding his bike, he fell off scrapping up his elbow and knee. When he was asked if anything else hurt, his only complaints where his elbow and knee. He showed no signs of trauma and continued about his day.”
2“Fast forward to Wednesday morning March 23rd, 2016. Jaden woke up complaining of a headache and seemed very lethargic, which was not his normal self at all.
All Jaden wanted to do was lay down and didn’t want to eat anything. After looking at Jaden you could see swelling around his right temple. The spot on his temple was not hard, more like really squishy.”
3“I decided to take him to the hospital. The moment I had Jaden in the car he started vomiting. Once Jaden arrived at Saint Mary’s Children’s hospital, a CT scan was done. The diagnosis was right temporal fracture of the skull and right temporal epidural hematoma.
The doctors explained to me that my son needed emergency surgery within the hour to try and save his life. The chances of him making it were 50/50.”
