Last night my son stepped on something in the hallway. He wouldn't let us touch it, and since it was late, we slapped a band-aid on it and put him to bed. This morning, I took the band-aid off, and I cleaned his foot as best as I could. After I got the blood surrounding it off, I noticed that there was something in his foot. I got a pair of tweezers, but I'm unable to get the object out. I called his doctor's nurse line and left a message asking them what to do. When you leave a message with the nurse line, it tells you that you will be called back before 4p. It's 1135a here. I'm not sure if I should wait to see what they say, or if I should just take him in to the ER and let them pull it out. I don't really know if this is something that should be considered emergency or not; I've never dealt with foreign objects in the feet before, and I'm not sure what it is anyway.
I guess basically my question is: Will he be okay to wait until the nurse line calls back, or should I go ahead and get it taken care of ASAP? If I wait until the nurse line calls back, there's a chance he won't get an appointment until tomorrow.
