My 10 years old son left us last week end after having a heart attack and I have some questions related to that.
Last Saturday everything was normal until he puked around 3pm and 4:30pm. He wasn't feeling very well but I didn't think much of it; I stupidity thought it was a small stomach ache and since my son wasn't complaining I didn't do anything other than put him to bed and check on him.
Around 5pm he puked again while lying in his bed and he wasnt moving at all so I tried to wake him up but even though he had his eyes open he just wouldn't move. I rushed to the hospital and in the car he was very odd, like half asleep. I talked to him the entire time but it was like he wasn't even listening to me he was just not here with me... When we arrived at the hospital finally talked to me and told me he wanted to walk so I was very reassured and let him walk on it's own to the emergency room. Less than 2 minutes after we arrived the doctors took him since I called them in the car to tell them something was very wrong and it was urgent. But less 2 minutes after they took him he had a first heart attack. They saved him but he had a second heart attack a few minutes later. The doctors told me he had a cardiac tamponade and a heart tumor and it was extremely dangerous. Sunday morning my little boy had another heart attack but they couldn't save him this time...
All this time my boy had this horrible heart tumor and none of us had any idea about it... his blood tests were good (7 months ago) and he had zero symptoms, I don't understand.
I want to know if a cardiac tamponade is painful or not. The doctors told me my little boy was probably too comatose to feel any pain but I'm not convinced. I still haven't accepted his...departure, and I need to know if he was in pain or not.
I hope you won't mind my terrible English but I can barely keep my eyes open since I can't sleep anymore so please be understanding. Thank you for taking the time to read me.
