Which way did it go?

Which way did it go???

Well I have had a monie moment two nights in a row...(See "The Red Shoe") Both happen at the church.... BUT..... I will let you laugh... then I need your opinions... lol I had Pai today and since her Mom is working late and her Dad had choir practice and so did Joshua.... so I just took Pai with us to the church. She was a sleep and woke up about the time choir practice was over......she had wallowed all over her hair and so I said... Let me fix your hair back out of your eyes....... I pulled the rubber band that was in her hair out.... you know how they wad up? Well this one was and I was trying to pull it open to re use it..... I held her hair with one hand and the pony tail in my mouth between my teeth trying to pull it open..... about that time Cliff came back to where we were and of course she wanted him... lol so I started to say, 'hang on Pai and let me finish your hair' but when I started to say that I inhaled... LOL and the pony tail/rubber band snapped back into my throat.... OR windpipe.... I thought it was in my throat... kept coughing trying to pull it up, LOL ..... but nothing... I could feel it... and still can... but now it feels lower.... and feels more like it is in my wind pipe area than my throat or the area that would go down and take care of itself! LOL my lung area is a little uncomfortable feeling...... almost a little pain.... I just can't imagine having to go to the ER for this... but then again... after recently reading about a lady who did the same thing with a little pin and it was in her lung... I just wonder should I..... ??

  • Monica French This young guy with gash on his head said while holding a bloody towel on his head .... "Wow, you just got here!" Lol I said, "yeah, I have special circumstance....... I'm sorry" lol
  • Karen King Yeah, you can put pressure on a laceration, but you have to get checked out to make sure your airway isn't obstructed. And he's probably not that bad it just looks bad. There may be a small laceration under that blood filled towel. 
  • Karen King I'm sure he'll be back there soon though! No worries girl!

  • Cliff Parmer Shannon Parmer said we were low on hair bands. So as soon as you get that one back, let us know.... 
  • Dana French Dees You will now need to hang a sign around your neck, "warning, Monica is fixing hair" so others will not get near you and cause a near death experience
  • Ernie C Ray That goes to show you, you can't fix a pony tail, without getting hair in your mouth. Lol
  • Monica French Cliff Parmer I will buy her some! Lol
  • Pat Murphy Sager Sorry you did an ER run for nuttin. Funny (not funny funny) that u couldn't tell which pipe it went into. I'll bet they had a laugh at the ER.

Our son was kinda like that, things were always happening to him.

  • Candace Maxwell I still have an overall button that Tara swallowed when she was 1. IT's in her baby book. Hahaha.
  • Monica French They said the trauma to my esophagus was given me a discomfort that radiated all around that area so to think it was my lung wasn't unusual. Lol just so you all know.... Lol I'm still a little worried that they just couldn't see it.... Lol so if I leave this world because of a lung infection from a pony tail I inhaled ....no one will even be SERIOUS at my funeral lol I know you all would just stand around laughing! LOL WHO AM I KIDDEN!!?? I probably didn't need to inhale a pony tail for that to happen! Lol I'm getting tickled just thinking about it! Lol I sure don't want to miss it! LOL
  • Monica French And I really would like to present this pony tail to Cliff Parmer &Shannon Parmer for Pai's baby book. Lol you just never know .....  lol
  • Dorothy Stafford End of this chapter..Stay connected for the next episode. Could be any day. That's my girl, love you.
