It is quite literally a text as a parent I never wanted to receive from our nanny at home watching the baby - “I had Story, almost choking. But don't panic. I gave her some CPR and she's breathing ok”
OMG.... don’t panic?
Miles & I tore out of Black Panther at the theatre, jumped in the car, (while my hubby called 911 from his office in Manhattan), and we got to the house right before 2 ambulances🚑 and 1 NYPD car 🚔blocked off our street to get to Story.
She was and is ok💙thank-goodness, it appears she choked on a combination of mucous and breast milk from a bottle 🍼and was turning blue. Even though I wasn’t there and can’t say what happened first-hand, just hammering home here why it so important to hold baby upright and burp them after every feeding.
Her and I then took a ride in an ambulance to our preferred @nyphospital where she was examined, given the all clear and we came home. .
I am so so so thankful for these paramedics, they were kind and concerned and attentive to my little girl, they were also at our house in about 4 minutes after hubby called, one of them came running in our door and when he saw her in my arms breathing, was like “Oh thank god, thank god she is okay”, and he really really meant it... What amazing people that work in this crazy city every day looking out for us all, what they must go through, sometimes we surely forget them but may we be grateful, they are everyday heroes, what would we do without them🙏🏻.
I don’t really know what else to write about this experience, it was so surreal... it happened so fast, I cried, was confused, I parked the car in the middle of the street and did not even realize jumping out to run into our house to get to her, funny how these things effect you.
We are all okay💕.
