Last night, my daughter puked up what looked to me like a ton of blood. I was freaking out. My husband said not to freak out and maybe she ate something red. I called the family member and asked, and she said that she'd bought my 4-year-old a large red slush drink.
So I continued to freak out and said that she never has stuff like that and it's making her puke her guts out and with the red, I was worried she was vomiting blood. I was upset enough that I probably said things like that the family member couldn't be trusted and that kind of thing. I regret how upset I get, but you must remember that my baby was sick and had a bunch of red stuff coming out of her, and as we avoid red food coloring this is not something I have experience with.
Anyway, upon relieving her body of the bright red slush drink, the 4-year-old was happy as a clam and went to sleep and woke up happy as a clam and is still fine.
How upset would you be? Do I owe this family member an apology for flipping out?
