Blue Bead.

Today was our first trip to Children's Hospital. The story goes a little something like this...

While shopping at TJ Maxx on Friday with Aunt Katie, lil B found a small blue bead on the floor. I thought nothing of it, although the moment is still clear as day in my mind. We were waiting in a long check out line, and I will admit I was bored too. I watched lil B pick up the said bead. Somehow, she managed to hold on to it thru the check out line, thru the parking lot, and climbing up and into her car seat. Within moments of pulling out of our parking spot, I heard "It's in my nose! It's gone!"

We spent Friday night at Children's After Hours. They tried blowing it out with an air tube, pulling it out on a glue stick, and using some odd surgical appliance. The bead remained. We were sent home with a terrified 3 1/2 year old and a bead still in her nose.

Catch up to today - Monday, July 6th @ Children's Hospital. Two doctors used a camera to scope out the inside of her nose. All this while my baby was strapped to a gurney. Kicking, screaming, crying, begging... The bead was gone. Thankfully. I'm still not sure who was more traumatized tho...

As we left Children's, lil B said, and I quote "That wasn't so bad."

OMG!!! My neice just did the same thing the other day w/ a small pebble from the playground! My brother thought she was joking (she's always fooling around --- there's a frog in tummy, there's a bunny under my bed, etc.). My sister-in-law put her to bed and Caitlyn said, "there's a rock in my nose." Luckily, they were able to remove it without a trip to the ER!
So glad your little girl's OK!
