That's Right...I Did It!!!
I did it! That's right! I really did it!
Last Thursday night, my 6th grade daughter got hurt in a game (twice even!), and I didn't cry, run to her aid, or even melt down. I've always wondered what I'd do in that situation. See...I tend to panic in emergencies...
When my son got his tonsils out, I passed out and fell in my husband's lap as the doctor grew concerned with his unrelenting vomiting.
When my dad was in ICU and I was awakened during the night and told he wasn't doing so well, I passed out and spent five long hours in the ER. I should have been there for my dad!
When my husband had his first colonoscopy a few years back, and the doctor told me he'd removed a pre-cancerous polyp, I had to keep reminding myself --DEEP BREATHS! DEEP BREATHS! DON'T PASS OUT! DON'T PASS OUT!
I'm proud to say I won that one!
So...I guess I can safely say, if you're in a tight spot and you need someone to help you through your emergency, you're better off to call someone else...
Not that I don't care!
-- I will, however, bake you cookies afterward!
