When it rains, it pours.


Four hours in the ER last night/this morning with a boy who stuck a dried bean in his ear. Way in.
First they tried suction, next flushing it and finally a long pair of tweezers did the trick.
Anyone want to take a wild guess as to which fellow is the culprit?

On no, what is it with kids sticking things up their noses and in their ears?!! 4 hours?! Was it traumatic for the little guy? Goodness....I feel for you!

My mother said she did the same thing with a bean when she was a kid... but it was up her nose... and it began to swell that is when they noticed it....

Oh my! My brother did that when he was a little fella but they had to do surgery because it had swollen!

So glad that it was able to be removed. I'm thinking it was your littlest man? My middle girl stuck a bead in her nose a month ago...thankfully we got it out without the ER, but I wasn't too sure.

Aaah, kids...they keep us hopping!

Oh my gracious... I don't know how we escaped that type of fiasco with our littles, but praise the Lord we did.

How's the little guy doing now? Any residual pain?

Oh my, what a rough week you had last week! Poor little guy. I only had one boy do this and we were able to get it out ourselves. It scared him so badly he never tried it again. I remember how he panicked, so I am sure your little one was scared.
