Tonight, Luke, Gracie and I were eating out at a restaurant and Gracie started choking on a potato so I started smacking her back, thinking that would do the trick. Well, it didn't and she started turning blue and I literally freaked out! I didn't know what to do! I stuck my finger in her mouth and couldn't feel anything, so Luke immediately put his finger all the way down her throat. Meanwhile a sweet, sweet lady sitting across from us saw the drama taking place and hopped up and grabbed Gracie and was going to do the Heimlick on her, but at that moment, she started breathing again. I have never, ever felt such panic in my life and felt so helpless! My mind was just blank and I didn't know what to do! I told that sweet lady/angel that I was so grateful she was there and she said she didn't do anything, but I told her that her acting so fast made me feel so much better. Apparently she used to run a daycare and has dealt with that situation in the past. I am sooooooo grateful for her!!!!!!!!!! So give your kiddos an extra hug for me tonight!
I am finally a stay at home Mom. Luke and I have been married 12 years now and we were blessed with little Gracie on July 22, 2007. My dream has always been to stay at home and raise my little Gracie and now I can. I love our dogs Sadie, Dusty, Millie, Daisy and Peanut. They are so much fun. Luke is working at Vulcraft as a lead rigger and is a great Dad. I feel like I am the luckiest woman in the world!
