“Hello, this is Emergency, how may I help you?”
(Mom, breathless, anxious) “My child has stopped speaking. He could talk two weeks ago but now he can’t. He doesn’t notice if I walk in the room anymore. He’s screaming constantly and I can’t seem to console him. He has constant diarrhea. He keeps arching his head back. I can’t figure out what’s going on. Something happened to my child.”
“When did this start?”
“About two weeks ago right after his 15 month shots.”
“What does your pediatrician say?”
“He says not to worry about it.”
