I took Sadie into the er at 9 last night. She was gagging and coughing and drooling and fussy typical signs of something stuck in her throat. The dr look said he could barely see something but X-ray wouldn't show anything which means it wasn't metal and we couldn't get her to sit still for a catscan. So at 2 am they transferred us in an ambulance to another hospital to see a pediatric gi dr (all seriousness aside it was cool riding in the ambulance and not being the patient for once haha) and at 4 am she went to the OR and had the thing removed. It was a plastic toy of her brothers from his ninja turtles. We got home at 7:30 and she slept and we slept lol and now she's 100% better.

More pics below.

She's not a stranger to eating foreign objects anything she picks up goes in her mouth and its hard to keep little things out of the house cause the 5 yr old collects weird things. Ugh! So yeah that was our long night

Sadie hated the stupid thing on her arm and kept hitting me with it. This was at 2 am and she was wide awake and very fussy.

And this was the thing that caused all the problems. Stupid ninja turtles! Glad it's over with and she's all better. It could've been a lot worse than it was and I'm glad the drs actually listened to me when I told them there was something stuck in her throat!!!
