When I'm nearing our 5th hour of working on her hair... I hear- mama -bead nose- hurts... Hmmm. What could this mean? I've been really careful with the beads. Are you sure Debritu? I look up her nose, touch her nose- nothing. Then puzzled -step away for moment- looking for tweezers just in case and thinking "what am I to do??". She starts screaming hysterically when I step away. Hmmm-bead up her nose. Seriously? But I was right there, doing her hair- and she's watching TV, is it possible? Well-she's almost 3- anything in possible-laugh. So- I turn up the lights- man handle her down to the floor and spread open her nostrils as calmly as I can- while struggling to get her to stay still so I can "look".
There it is.... Yup- she has a red bead stuck up her nose. Now I Panic .. grab shoes - jump in the car and call hubby- what hospital do I go to? All the while I'm driving "fast" to the hospital- with my hazard lights on... Now, If you know me, I drive pretty fast to start with...I have calmed down immensely in my "parentage".. but I learned- some things come back very naturally-laugh.
So quickly down the highway we fly- I kept thinking- what if she gets this past the point of seeing it- what will they have to do? After all it's right at the point where is she pushes it even a bit- it might "disappear". Hmmmm. Denis calls the nurse and she calls me. The nurse asks-"can you see it??, Yes, I can but it's high. She says, okay-come into the office anyway? There is one thing we can try- if it doesn't work we'll move her to the emergency room". All the while I'm calming now and have a constant case of nervous laughter.
So, arriving at the office (one floor up from Emergency) they usher us right into a room-all the while D is screaming.
Here is what you do if your Daughter or Son gets a bead up there nose and you can see it!
- A nurse held her down
- The doctor plugged the clear nostril.
- Then I blew as hard as I could into her mouth.
So- if your daughter ever gets a bead stuck up her nose- try the little trick described above.
The doctor then giggles and says to "me", now you know the trick.
The doctor then explains... they see this a lot.
