It's all good. Don't beat yourself up.
You know how I learned the lesson about "little white lies"?
I had a full fledged long term affair, got pregnant, had an abortion and had complications requiring help from my husband.
In comparison, needing to say "um.. you know, I was on the spot and unsure how to proceed, but during that call when I was upset; I know you wanted to cheer me up but.."
We ALL screw up. Every single one of us. So by all means; please don't think I was coming down on you! Not at all!
Just giving you some food for thought on how you could proceed in the future.
