wanna hear a crazy story?
i just saved my neighbour.
the doorbell rang.
and it was my next door neighbour...
not making any noise.
so i did the heimlich manoeuvre on her.
and it worked.
i still called 911 afterward.
they came...lights going...stretcher and all.
they wanted to take her to the hospital because apparently "it" (piece of meatloaf) could come back up and cause her to choke again.
but she didn't want to go, and instead chose to stay at my house for an hour, until it safely went down.
she confided that this was her WORST nightmare.
she's in her 50's and single...lives alone.
she said she often worried about choking and no one being around to help her.
i showed her how to do the heimlich on yourself using a hard chair.
look at me go!
p.s. hudson was laughing and smiling the whole time...she joked about it afterward...
