Loss of a child

Recommended Posts

Over the MLK holiday weekend wile Sandy and I were in the valley (Phoenix metro) for a friends retirement party (30 years as an army nurse, full bird colonel) friends of ours lost their 11 month old boy to aspirating a small pebble. Please put Johnny and Jessica Gooden and their daughter Serria on your lists. 

Knees bent, anvil rung.

I'm at a loss for words, I can't think of worse times for a parent. Prayers for comfort for Johnny, Mom and all. 

The morning news yesterday had a piece about a viral Youtube video about clearing a choking baby's airway. There was an interview with a new mother who'd saved her baby after seeing it. I hope this isn't insensitive but the link to the YOutube video follows.


Frosty The Lucky.

Thank you for the video. Very informative.

The most common things children choke on are small carrots and small hot dog pieces.

I mention this because parents should be aware of the perils of these foods.

Has any one of the membership noticed that ball-point pen caps,  now,  have a channel in them?

It is to allow a child to continue breathing when they get the caps into their airways.

I had not noticed that and had to,  recently,  read about it on the net.

I think that this improvement is a recent development, but I am not sure.
