So, Friday night my almost four year old daughter decided to stick a game piece up her nose.... After repeated attempts to extract the game piece myself we took her to the emergency room. Not suprising to anyone, my daughter would not allow the doctor to stick his long tweezers up her nose so we had to sedate her....which I HATE!!! After the sedation took effect the doctor went back in but was unable to locate the game piece had gone in too far. We waited around for the sedation to wear off, made our appointments with the Ear, Nose, Throat specialist for Monday and started to leave the ER around 2:30 in the morning.....the sedation medicine made her nauseous and low and behold she threw up the game piece (along with dinner, etc..) It had gone through her nasal passage and down her throat.
Thought I would share our wonderful adventures that many of you parents can probably relate too.. .:)

Oh, the odd things that kids will do!  If it makes you feel any better, I got bored in a beauty salon while my mother was having her hair done and stuck a bead up my nose that I found on the floor.  nono    Why did I do that?  I have no idea.  That was around 50 years ago, but I still remember doing it.  Fortunately, I was able to get the bead out by pressing on the other side of my nose and blowing through the nostril with the bead.  The bead came flying out.  tongue
I'm glad the game piece came out for your daughter, but sorry you had to go through all of that in the meantime.  Kids, kids, kids!  turn

Ahhhh, this brought back memories!  I have two girls and a boy.  When they were little, the girls had a miniature "whistling" tea kettle for their kitchen set.  My son broke off the little part that whistles and covers the spout and shoved it up his nose.  We made the trip to the emergency room and he was strapped to what they called a papoose board so they could get that out of his nose.
I have no idea why kids to that.  I never had the inclination but my brother shoved a kittywillow (Had to use that word because of our curse word protection on the forum!  LOL) up his nose and had to go to the hospital.  AND, my mother saved it and put it in his baby book!  Yuck!

I remember being a little kid and getting my butt paddled heavily when my mother caught myself and two of my cousins shoving these ball bearings up our noses and then closing off the other nostril so that we could shoot them out or nose. We were making a game of who could project it the farthest.

Personally I think it was the fault of interior designers in the 70's. What person would put a large patterned rug into a child's room and then not expect that they would use it as some sort of measuring tool or gigantic game board? Hee hee.

I cannot believe your poor little girl got a game piece stuck up her nose!! You must have been so worried...and I'm sure it hurt! It sounds like you all had a very long night.

I am glad to hear that you all came out of it ok.

Anyone watch House? In one episode, a little boy stuck a toy soldier up his nose. Then he sent in a little fireman to rescue the soldier. It was hilarious.

The doctor's mentioned how sometimes parents aren't even aware of foriegn objects in their kids' nose until the kid has an unexplained re-occuring sinus infection. Yikes.....

Two gross ones:
I stuck a dry bean up my nose when I was four and my Mom didn't discover it until it sprouted and came out my left nostril. My pediatrician laughed until he cried.

When my cousin was a little boy he stuck wadded-up bits of toilet paper all the way up into his nose until it was packed. Six weeks or so later his Mom noticed a funny smell around his nose and lo and behold, it had all rotted. :)
