We had my oldest son's conference cross country meet about an hour away tonight. On the way home we ran through the Culver's drive through so the youngers could eat on the way home as it was getting late.
A while later, I heard this weird noise behind me and said "are you alright?"...my 10 year old squeaked and shook his head no. So, we're in the left lane of the highway - I tell my husband to pull over NOW, I'm out of my seatbelt and crawling to the back of the van to heimlich him. DH had to pull into the center area (not a lane) as he couldn't get to the right fast enough.
Fortunately, at that point my 10 year old puked it out and was OK. It wasn't even the food he choked on - it was a fricking piece of ice from his cup that he decided to chomp on.
Anyway, all is well and my heart is back to beating at a normal rhythm again.
