First non-food eaten… that we know of

Had some excitement today. Cole swallowed swallowed a 1/2 inch chromed ball bearing from his Magnetix set. After calling the Heath Nurse we confirmed that swallowing a ball bearing isn’t a “Rush to the Hospital” thing unless he is having trouble breathing or can’t keep down water and food. So far so good.

On a side note, I discovered that if I really want to freak out Cole, I just have to suggest calling “911.” For some reason he thought that meant they might have to cut open his tummy or punch his tummy to get it out. We explained that “911″ was just a number to call if there is an emergency and we needed help.

I ended up calling “811″ the “not immediate emergency” number that links to a Public Health Nurse. The Health Nurse also told us not to induce vomiting as that could cause the ball bearing to come up from the stomach and go into his airway. This would have been helpful to know before we tried to get him to bring it up. *sigh*
