WHEN Kathy Scott's four-year-old daughter Taleah went blue, she completely zoned out everything else that was happening until the little girl was back to herself.
She is so grateful to the two women who helped her family on February 5 by looking after her son while she and husband Jason waited for the ambulance.
Taleah was recovering from an operation to remove her tonsils and adenoids and getting grommets inserted in Leonard Lodge, Herston when the family decided to get out and go for a drive.
The Goondiwindi family stopped at BP North on the Bruce Hwy at Burpengary for food and the playground.
"I went to the playground to get Taleah and she was on the floor," she said.
The 35-year-old mum took Taleah to the public toilets to splash some cold water on her face and a woman helped Mrs Scott and was joined by another woman later.
"When my daughter's colour started changing from white to all purple, I picked her up and looked at my son and the lady said 'Don't worry, I'll look after him'.
"I didn't have to worry about him, these women were watching him and making sure he was okay."
There were some firefighters there who calmed them and took them to a separate room.
Taleah was back to herself when they arrived at the hospital and Mrs Scott was told she may have had a vasovagal episode where she vomited in her mouth and breathed it in. It is a brief period of dizziness caused by stress etc.
Mrs Scott and her family want the two women and the firefighters to know how grateful they are.
