So Lana's supposed to have her eye surgery on Monday, but we had to cancel because she has had an illness these past couple days with fever and vomiting. It's been passing around the family. So they won't do general anaesthesia until she's been clear of illness for a while.
Today she seems to have been feeling better, and Zoe and Kaya are better too so we ventured out to some yard sales. Surely harmless fun right? Lana and Kaya each had a quarter to spend and they always find something weird to spend it on. Kaya bought a roll of eye stickers and Lana bought a bag of beads. We sent Rene in to buy a couple of coffee tables (for 50 c each!) and meanwhile Lana sat in the back of the car and decided that her baby frogs in her soap dispenser (which we had just bought for 25 c) wanted to watch her put a bead up her nose. And she didn't want to let those baby frogs down.
I knew nothing of her little adventure taking place in the backseat until she started yelling "mummy there's something stuck up my nose!"
It was wedged up there super high. I didn't want to attempt to try to get it out myself, I didn't even have any tweezers with me, and it was so far back it was hardly visible. Rene came back tot he car and we drove straight to ER. The Dr there held her other nostril closed and had me blow in her mouth to get it to come out. It took a couple of tries, but it came out. Lana was super brave and says she'll never put anything up her nose again!
Now we get to await the bill. At times..I slightly miss the NHS, at least, the fact that it was free anyway. I swear we pay more on medical bills than groceries, and we have good insurance too. I hate to think what it would be like without it!
Rene found this whole ordeal hillarious. He couldn't stop laughing (he has a thing about noses and stuff being stuck in them...it just tickles his funny bone) so I guess for him this was money well spent on good entertainment.
