There has been a few times where he has saved me from falling. Once, as I was transferring out of bed. I ended up falling backwards off the edge of my bed and catching myself between the bed and dresser, wedged there about two feet off the ground. Chris was not home. I was stuck. My only option was to lower myself to the floor, then call someone to help me get back into the wheelchair.
Out of nowhere comes Jared. I thought he was still sleeping. Without me directing him, he stooped under my flat back and with his head, he pushed me up enough so I could pull myself back onto the bed. Very resourceful, and he was about four years old.
Another time, I was in the hot tub, going through some exercises. I remember Sabreena was a newborn, and I could finally get back into the water after my C-section closed. Anyway, Bree and Ryan were sleeping in the house. Chris was on the deck. I let Jared come in the water for a minute.
The baby started crying, so Chris went in to check on her. While he was gone, I slipped and my head went under. I could not get a grip to pull myself up. My hands kept slipping.
Then I felt Jared come behind me and put his arms under my armpits and pull me up enough for my head to be out of the water. He held me up, screaming for Chris. Chris came and so did two cops. A neighbor acted on Jared's screaming.
Pretty amazing kid. He was in kindergarten when this happened. He was recognized with a 'Heroic Deed Award', presented to him by the mayor.
Shortly after this incident, we got rid of the hot tub!
