I was in the kitchen on the phone and my husband was at the table eating breakfast when he started making these annoying coughing sounds, (not unusual for him). I left out of the kitchen so I could hear. When suddendly it got real quiet and something told me to go back into the kitchen, when I entered the kitchen I saw my husband kneeling on the floor choking. I went behind him with the phone cradled between by chin and shoulder and I preformed the heimlick maneuver on him and dislodged the food caught in his throat. I asked him if he was ok when he said yes and I continued with my conversation.
My husband is angry with me because... I never stopped talking on the phone, I left out of the kitchen to begin and he thinks I was too cold about the whole thing. In my defense I had no idea he was choking when I left out of the kitchen; I thought he was being his usual self as he frequently complains about me being on the phone and sometimes turns the tv up loud when I am on the phone. I never even looked at him, I just left out of the kitchen and when I saw him on the floor I just went into action and I forgot I was even on the phone for a few seconds. I heard my friend in my ear still talking and I finished up the conversation quickly as I was on my way to church when she called.
I really think my husband should be grateful I saved his life, that the fact that I stayed on the phone while doing it is inmaterial and is more of a testament to my being able to stay calm during a crisis. Now he is saying I'm cold and is actually pissed with me; I say he should have at least said thank you and be glad I was on the phone. Because I was on my way out the door when the phone rang and had I just let it ring and continued out the door I would not have been around to save him. I am confused as to how he can be anygry with me and not even thank me and I frankly don't see how I could owe him an apology.
