Kids are taught to do what their parents tell them to do – but in this case, it’s good that Camdyn Smith didn’t follow his mother’s orders; otherwise she may not be alive today.

Camdyn returned to his home in Sedro-Woolley, Washington after school earlier this month to find his mother Kimberly suffering from chest pains and trouble breathing.

Though his mother insisted that she just wanted to take a nap and sleep off the pain, the 9-year-old kept telling her that she needed to go to the hospital.

“I kept saying that we needed to go. So, I just went and got my shoes and coat on and told her we needed to go,” Camdyn told KING.

After sufficient pestering, Kimberly relented and went to see a doctor.

The mother wasn’t there very long, however, because medical officials immediately called her an ambulance and sent her to the emergency room.

This is because doctors found that Kimberly was suffering from pulmonary embolisms, a condition in which the arteries in both of her lungs had become blocked by blood clots.

If Kimberly had taken the nap like she wanted, she may not have ever woken up. She says that after spending seven days in the hospital being treated for the condition, she can honestly say that she owes her life to the persistence of her son Camdyn.
