Update on the kid
The dye test was good, there was an “abnormality” - which I already knew was her ulcer - but there aren’t any perforations.
Now the plan is to hold her over night to observe how she handles food now.
So I know most of you probably don’t read any of my text posts, but I’d like to ask you guys to keep my daughter in your thoughts. She managed to swallow a penny a while ago (not precisely sure when, best estimate is about 10 days ago)
Yesterday I got her x-rayed because we thought there was something wrong with her lungs, sure enough the x-Ray showed a nice, circular, metal object. The doctor called me and told me to call 911, however my friend was able to drive me quicker than the ambulance could get here. They ran an endoscopy and used forceps to get the coin out and spent the night in acute pediatrics because the penny left an ulcer in her throat. They’re going to run a dye test to check for perforations that may have been caused by the penny now
