Three posts in one day

Well as you know, I can't make this crap up. Thad loves me. If I ever doubted it, I don't anymore. Guess why? He saved my life tonight. Really. Truly. He gave me the heimlich.
I was putting my supper plate into the sink while chomping on the remains of my taco. Yes I wrote taco. All of the sudden it was stuck. I couldn't breathe. To be honest I don't remember much other than getting scared, not being able to breathe, and letting out a sound of groaning terror. Then he did the maneuver. I gagged, coughed up the stuff, and stood there in shock.
Ryan was laughing...yes laughing. Thanks Ryan. He said my noise was funny. Then I started laughing. After the third time I said, " I am almost died just now," Kate retorted, "Okay mom, you don't have to keep talking about it." Thanks Kate. Olivia didn't seem to notice. She was focused on dessert. Thanks Olivia.
For real, though, thanks Thad!

Oh my gosh! I would have been so frightened! One of my biggest fears is that I will choke on something while no one else is home to help me.

Ryan and Kate's reactions are great!

Glad you are okay!

Wow, I'm so thankful you're all right! I also think it's classic "Bonnie" to be laughing about it moments later--priceless. Ryan, Kate, and Olivia are SO like you! Especially Kate, although I know that makes you cringe. ;)

You're welcome Bon, I am so glad I was home when it happened. And although you're words were very nice, I would have done that to anyone, not just you to prove that I love you.

Bonnie...so glad your okay. Very scary moment, I know. I once choked on a smartie and my dad saved me. Thank God for the men in our lives.

Just so you all know, Kate also said, "That would be too bad if you had died, because Brady would die too, since no one can give him breast milk."
She was about as matter of fact as one could get.
Also, initially I figured it all happened at once--I could breathe/Thad did the heimlich. But within a few minutes, I kept clearing my throat like there was stuff in it. It was slightly acidic. Thad said that is common afterward. Then my gut hurt a little. I think he gave me an extra nudge for all the nagging I do....

Does this mean you owe Thad one now? :)

TBRKO said...

HA! For this I probably owe him for life...
Don't put any more ideas in his head though okay?
