  • I thought I was going to meet the Lord today

    We went out to dinner this evening. I ordered filet mignon which I never do and it was delicious.
    Anyway I had eaten a piece and swallowed but it got stuck in my throat. I tried to swallow again and it wouldn't move. Then I had a glass of water, and I couldn't breathe. At this point I went into a panic. I jumped out of the booth and my husband jumped up and started doing the heimlech maneuver on me. He was actually lifting me up off the floor and nothing was happening. Then stuff started running out of my nose and I began to throw up on the floor (sorry). A lady in the next booth jumped up and began screaming for someone to call 911. By this time I started getting my air back a little bit and then I was ok.
    I kissed the lady and thanked her and she said "it wasn't your time".

    Man,,,, what a scary experience.
    Thank you Lord He allowed me to remain here.
    Now my breastbone hurts.. but I'm alive, that's what counts.

    Wow! How scary! Glad you are alright!

    I got a fishbone stuck in my throat a couple years ago. Had to go to the ER. Scary, also...

    Thank you, Lord our sister is alright!

        Jeanne!!!!!! The only thing funny about this is that you posted it in Anything Goes...isn't that the truth? We just never know what will happen to us from day to day do we.
        Praising our Lord that you are here to tell us about it.

        Did you take the rest of your steak home?

          Karen,
          I will not be eating any kind of steak for a very long time.

              Glad you're okay but I can't imagine the trauma and the embarrassment!
              Sorry you are sore... many people experiencing this end up with broken ribs etc.

              Just wasn't your time.

                I swallowed a hot dog whole once as a kid. Similar experience, except for the heimlich part. Hindsight 20/20, I think I could breathe, but I didn't realize it at the time because I was panicked. It just got stuck in the esophagus until it triggered the gag reflex. But you think it's stuck in the bronchial tube and you don't want to inhale for fear of making it worse.

                  That is nice. But what is better dying and going to the Lord or surviving?

                    Surviving so that you can live for the Lord.

                      Of course going to be with the Lord is our ultimate goal, but are you saying my husband should have stood there and allowed me to choke to death?
                      Would you say that if it was one of your loved ones? Would you watch a child (if you have any)gasp for air and stand there saying that they are going to be with the Lord, and do nothing? I don't understand your attitude quite frankly.

                        Wait, what? I don't understand what point you are trying to make.

                            Yes 1Pet that is true, but if you were choking and gasping for air, would you just want people to leave you alone and not help you.
                            Are some of you saying I should have just been left to choke to death?

                              Jeanne, I would have tried to save you too! If the Lord wanted to take you home at that moment, He could have done so, no matter what your husband did to save you!

                              Glad the Lord decided to keep you here with us a bit longer!
