A miracle twice over
My sweet Love Nugget gave me a HUGE scare today. He was munching on some watermelon when I notice that he had that "look" on his face... that look of NO air exchange. No panick, folks choke around our house all time. I scooped him up and started whacking his back. Well, after a few seconds I realized this was not a normal choking... this was the real deal. I began whacking harder, abdominal thrust... everything. Panick, desperation kicked in. I called 911. PLEASE HELP, my son is choking. I cannot put into words what I felt... Horror. He eventually ran out of oxygen, went limp, listless. I threw him to the ground and stuck my entire finger down his throat, out came a clump of mucous, went down a second time, out came a chunk of watermelon. He quickly puked, I swept it out of his mouth, and the most beautiful sound I have ever heard... a gasp and a weak cry!
OH sweet Jesus! Thank you for saving him!
Life without Collins would be no life at all.
