Little boy Finds Missing Lego Piece In His Nose

Isaak Lasson can finally breathe easy after three years of sinus problems.

The cause? A single wheel-shaped Lego piece that he got stuck up his nose back when he was 3.

At least that's what his dad, Craig Lasson, said he thinks. His son started having a hard time breathing back then.

"I felt so bad," the father told KSL-TV. Isaak "was sleeping with his mouth open, trying to breathe."

Numerous doctors looked at isaak's nose and prescribed antibiotics.

But last week, a new doctor noticed that Isaak seemed to have something foreign stuck up his schnozz and asked what it might be.

"I put some spaghetti up there, but that was a long time ago," Isaak told the doctor, according to KTLA-TV.

But it wasn't pasta that was up Isaak's nose, just a ball of fungus encasing a Lego wheel.

"We think he bent it in half -- it's pretty flexible -- and that it opened up once it got into his sinuses," Isaak's father told reporters.

Although Craig Lasson momentarily worried he was a bad parent for needing three years to figure out the Lego problem plaguing his son's sinuses, he said he is happy that Isaak is eating and sleeping better than he has in years.

What have your kids ever stuck up their noses? Did it require medical help to get it out?

 My son is always trying to put something up his nose. Thankfully nothing has gotten stuck, yet!

Yes. My DD stuffed a small ball of paper towels and she started screaming almost as soon as she did it. We got it out without having to take her to the ER.  Just don't get me started on what she has swallowed :P

The only things my boys have stuck in their noses, thus far, are their fingers. *knock on wood*

My DD stuck 1/2 a piece of those candy necklace beads up her nose. I put my finger over the other nostril and she was able to blow it out.
