I was about to ask this same question!

Would this be ok for 911 to come and get him? My mom is refusing to come over because she thinks its not that big of a deal.

That might be a bit much and you will pay way more than a cab ride in the end, unless you met your insurance CAP or have good insurance. Can you call anyone else? Or can you pay for a cab?

That's totally a judgement call. If you feel that he is having a hard time breathing, and don't have a way to the hospital then yes, if you can call a cab I would.

ER won't make a suggestion. They will give you a nurse hotline that will tell you to go in pretty much regardless.

My mom has told me I was over reacting to bring DD in. Then she ended up over night in the hospital with a kidney infection.

Well a Ambulance ride is going to end up being a couple thousand if they don't. But they should. If you don't have any other options than do it. Or maybe tell your mom you are considering calling the ambulance if she doesn't help you out.



Do you have a neighbor that could help?

Calm down and breathe. Your son needs you right now and he needs you to be calm because he is not.

How is your son doing? Is he the same? If he is at this point I think you need to call the ambulance? Or ask 911 if there is any one else you can call for a ride first, that you are worried about the cost. If they say no then explain your situation calmly to them. Your son is having trouble breathing, count how many times he is breathing in a minute.
Ask if you are going to be able to ride with.
