Typical story, 10 month old, teething biscuit (organic whole grain <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: leave me alone!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">), both parents sitting there, all of a sudden the entire quarter of the biscuit she had left is gone, coughing, she panics and inhales sharply, now WE panic, intercostal retractions, face and extremities turning white-blue, mom flipping her over and trying to do the back-thumping thing from Dr. Sears, it's not working, dad calling 911, mom holds baby with one hand to grab emergency manual, this applies more pressure to baby's sternum...<br><br>
POP!<br><br>
teething biscuit on the floor!!!!<br><br>
Dog removes teething biscuit remnants from the scene.<br><br>
Angry, angry my-God-why-hast-thou-forsaken-me screams from baby, EMS AND a fire truck show up and block ALL our neighbors into their spots, EMTs fumble for 20 minutes trying to get pulse ox machine to work, we sign release of liability for declining transport to the hospital. Meanwhile she is nursing and popping off to play peekaboo with the EMTs.<br><br>
Message left for pediatrician, MIL called for commiseration, MDC consulted for further commiseration.<br><br>
End scene.<br><br>
(It's just like me to almost have my kid die on the day she's baptized. *no smilie morosely wry enough to work in this spot*)

I'm so glad she's ok. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I had to laugh at your last comment, the only time DD fell out of bed and really hurt herself was the day she was baptized <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Choking is the worst scare. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>
The best part is, they never have any idea how scary it is. Five hours from now you MIGHT start breathing normal and she forgot about it instantly.

Oh how scary! I had the same thing happen when Livi was 10 months as well (with a bottle cap)! Glad she's ok and happy now.

Mamalisa, how true. It's funny, one of the EMTs said his two year old started choking once. So grabbed him and flipped him over and thumped him on the back. The object fell out. Dad's panicking and saying "omg are you ok? are you ok?" The kid says "thanks dad" and runs off to play. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I believe she confused "baptism" with "being given nine lives" and decided to test the theory. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> So glad to hear she's okay. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
