As you may know i've got a 7yr old daughter who up till yesterday has been a little star, calling ambulances, opening the door getting nebs for me. Talking to daddy etc on my mobile to explain what's happening.
Yesterday when had to get ambulance she went straight to door to open it as ususal as that's her ""job"" but as all relatives were already here they took her upstairs to play instead and she TOTALLY freaked, went completely hysterical about me having an attack for the first time ever. I have never seen her so upset and she didn't calm down, had to be brought to A+E to see i was ok.
I think it's probably because of the change in ambulance calling routine, also because i've only just been disharged and she had someone else to lean on instead of having to be ""in charge""
But has anyone else been through this with their children? How did you reassure/deal with it so she can cope better next time?
Any advice would be very welcome
