What's the Silliest, Craziest Or Scariest Thing You've Had To Bring Your Child To The Doctor Or ER For?

I had to bring my 7 year old son to the Er because he stuck dried beans up his nose.  I was really embarrassed, but the nice ER doctor said,-  "Oh,  this is nothing.  We take beans, peas, tips of erasers out of kid's nostrils and ears all the time.  We even have a special machine for it."

And, with that he sucked the beans out of Josh's nose.

The scariest thing was when my daughter was 10 months old and was having trouble breathing. She was also damned near lifeless. She ended up being admitted with double lobe pneumonia. Spent a week there with her.

My oldest son had apparently found a small button in the floor at church and proceeded to stick it up his nose. He starts crying, I start flipping out and DH just held closed one side of his nose and said blow. Lol out it popped and he was fine. I think he was about 2 when that happened.

 My daughter swallowed one of my brother's seizure pills. It was the scariest moment of my life.

jaw dropWow!  

One of my grandaughters swallow ALL of my daughter's birth control pills.  She called the doc and he said it was okay.  Not terrible.  But, I was scared.

My two year old took a flying leap of his tool box and landed on his chin on our oak floors. Had to take him to the ER, they just glued him back together.
