As I am riding in a tricycle going to the appointment I have , suddenly my daughter called me in my cellphone, "Mom go home right away younger sister was bleeding in her tongue. Got nervous and let the driver stop the tricycle and paid even if in a few meters ride. I called right away my spouse to respond it emmediately as I don't know what I will going to do. Thanks that my daughter also called her father for some rescue. So I got a calm heart If I knew that my husband run after the house and all was cleard. It was an accident that my daughter was playing and then happened to bumped her teeth to the floor and her mouth was bleeding. Thanks God for my daughter that she has will to call us up . Than doing nothing! So in your own experienced have you happened to have an emergency call? What is your first reaction? Are you confused of what do you do first or not? Wish to hear some of your story here.

Well, I don't have kids, but I do have cats. When Jelli jumped out of my hands and fell and couldn't move her back legs I was terrified and found a vet clinic that was open and ran her in. I was late to work that morning, but honestly, I didn't care (I was nearly to the point of telling that job to take it and shove it, but stayed on another 6 years.) I would've probably been quite upset. Like the time my mom called and said she thought she had another stroke. I was shutting down my computer even while I was telling my boss I had to go. She did have another stroke, and really can't remember anything about the week before the stroke that included most of our trip to Colonial Williamsburg. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonial_Williamsburg

You are a very good pet owner and lover. You give emphasis to them like true people. I guess if you have kids you do also more to them. Even though they are animals still they felt that they are cared much and love too. They can respond through only with their gestures and sounds but they try to say thanks to you for all the goods things that showed to them like real human beings.Thanks for the fisrt one to say thoughts about my topic. Thanks a lot.

I probably would've been all in their faces if I had been a parent. I have said that I expected a husband to support me in the fashion my MOTHER was accustomed to and I never found one of those. I think I'd've probably been wanting to stay home and home school any kids. At one point it briefly looked like we might take on the roomie's nephew - the younger one - I told her I would retire and be there when he got home from school and he had better expect to finish his homework before he could talk about going out and playing... geee - I wonder why he decided to live with her folks instead....

Hello geniustiger. I am sorry to hear that you little daughter got hurt with her teeth and mouth that made her bleed in the tongue. It is a terrible accident. A few months ago, one of my colleagues' daughters also had a terrible accident. The little girl was standing on a long bench watching the students' performance in the auditorium. When asked to come down from the chair on which she was standing, she had a big fall onto the ground that she lost one of her front teeth bleeding a lot. The poor girl cried a lot and has already lost the tooth. I feel so bad for her. Now she has to wait for some time before the dentist fixes an artificial one for her. This poor girl is my favorite. She is very respectful to me each time she sees me. I hope your little daughter is now well recovered from the small accident. Take care, my dear friend.

After knowing it , got run and find vehicle to go back to my house. With the help of God as I called my husband to go home he did as fast as he can . Thanks also that my eldest daughter had the presence of mind to call us up about the emergency. Then her father found it and apply first aid and now she is okay. But she loss her one tooth. And got bruised in her chin also.

I got a call from the school last week that my daughter had fallen on the playground and bruised her arm. I did panic a little but when they told me it wasn't that bad, I calmed down a bit. I was ready to go to the school and get her but when I talked to her, she said she was fine and would see me at home.

If we could be sure she is fine and alright then nothing to worry but my daughter was telling it exaggerated and more of what happened so got panic and nervous.

In almost all emergencies I am very cool and handle things, it's only when it's all over that I fall apart. The only exception to this is when something happens to my Hubby, just when I am totally needed I fall apart. I don't know why this happens but so far someone else in the family has always been there to pick up after me.

Might be you will be fall of the nervous too. Concern of what happen to your spouse and you got pity on him that is why you are falling.
