Yesterday I spent 3 hours in the doctors office. Do you know why? Miss Missy decided it would be a great idea to stick a watch battery up her nose. A watch battery? Are you kidding me?
Here's how it went. I'm on the computer reading blogs, of course, and she's sitting behind me watching Chicken Little sniffing a lot. Since I'm coming down with a cold, I figured that she was starting to get the sniffles.
"Are you okay, Miss Missy. Is your nose running?"
"Noooo," she answers in a sad, whiny voice."
Her eyes are watery a little so I tell her to come sit on my lap and cuddle her a little saying "Awwwww, my baby's getting sick!"
Right then she starts to cry. After asking her what's wrong about 3 or 4 times, she finally says that she has something in her nose. I look and see what I think must be a bead and calmly tell her that it's okay and we are going to go let the doctor get it out.
"What did you put in there?"
"I don't know."
So I call her doctor for an immediate appointment and get her shoes on to go.
"What did you put in there?" I ask again.
"It was one of those silver things."
"Do you have another one?"
She runs off and comes back with a watch battery!
I panic a little. I mean what is a watch battery going to do to her? I watch House. Could that thing break and get acid in her system and she start displaying some sorta odd symptoms like exploding eye vessels or something?!?! Overreacting I know, I know.
So I rushed her to her doctor and waited about an hour and a half to be seen. Meanwhile, she is playing around the office like nothings wrong with her.
I don't see the battery anymore so I figure it has gone farther back or right down her throat.
When the doctor finally sees her, he doesn't see anything and we conclude that it must have gone back and she swallowed it. He says it'll pass but if she starts getting a stomach ache bring her back immediately.
So through all this, I have to say that she is my only child that has EVER gotten something stuck up her nose. And do you know WHY she said she did it?
Miss Missy: Well, on iCarly (Nick TV show, for all that aren't familiar), Carly and Sam put blueberries in their nose.
Anywho! I think she's over the whole nose thing. Between every nurse in the office, the doctor, my dad, her dad and myself, she has heard about a hundred times that you shouldn't stick anything in your nose and to NEVER EVER EVER do it again!
