So, I start asking the parent what's wrong and she starts telling me that she wanted the kid checked out immediately because at home earlier, the kid walked up to her and told her his heart stopped. The kid then repeats the statement to me and smiles and then starts talking about some other random shit like 4 year olds like to do.
"Did he look like this when he said that?", I asked her. Yup. He didn't have any complaints of pain, he wasn't grimacing, he didn't appear to be struggling to breathe, no crying, didn't seem distressed? No cardiac history or medical problems? Nope. Just walked up to her, said his heart stopped, went back to watching Yo Gabba Gabba or whatever else kids do. She felt it was an emergency because he vomited once two weeks before. Really.
Some days, I really don't know what to say.
