If you know Landon, then you know what a great kid he is. This great kid loves doing things with friends, and went for some paintball with the other boy scouts but only made it through a small amount of paintball before he began to feel sick and threw up. Landon returned home after the activity and spent the rest of the day sleeping and throwing up. On Sunday morning, Landon experienced a seizure and was quite disoriented afterwards. 911 was called and Landon was taken to the ER in an ambulance with his mother. His father met them at the hospital as soon as he was able to leave work and drive there. Landon's parents figured that after a day of vomiting, probably caused by a stomach virus, he was probably dehydrated, which led to the seizure. Unfortunately, a CT scan revealed what appeared to the radiologist to be some blood clots in his brain. Since no facility in the tri-cities offered the required care, Landon would need to be transported to Seattle or Spokane for treatment.
