Today was a very scary day here. This afternoon Michaela was eating a cookie and she must not have chewed well before swallowing because it got stuck in her throat and she couldn't breathe at all. I had to perform the Heimlich Maneuver three times before I finally dislodged it. Afterwards, she kept throwing up and crying. She said that she thought she was going to die. I was frightened, too, because the first two attempts didn't work. It took an hour to calm her down.
Tonight, I got a call from my mother saying that my nephew was in a motorcycle accident and in the hospital. Thankfully, he escaped with just facial injuries and no head trauma. He needed a lot of stitches, though. I think everyone in my family is breathing a sigh of relief that his injuries weren't worse than this.
Thank you, Lord, for protecting my family.
