My son Matt was 18 months old at the time and the day before (Friday) had gotten his MMR shot. Saturday evening he was unusually tired and so I laid him down in his crib and went to take a shower and heard him hit the side of the crib, when I got to him he wasnt breathing, his body was spasiming and he was turning blue. I tried to do CPR but was shaking so bad I couldnt...so I ran over to my neighbor's house and had him do CPR while I was calling 911 and I was so lucky, the volunteer fire dept next door to the house was having a meeting and cleaning trucks and they sent their paramedic right over....they rushed him to the hospital still trying to revive him and 20 min later as we pulled into the parking lot of the medical center he took his 1st breath...today he is a happy healthy 8 yr old who has some issues with focusing but is otherwise doing ok. He has not had anymore vaccines and I sign the religious objection waiver every year when he goes to school because his doc wont say vaccines are what caused his seizure.
