I was awoken this morning by Super N coughing strangely and the huz yelling, "SHE SWALLOWED A PENNY!" I sat up and observed the situation trying to figure out what to do. She was clearly still breathing but her gag reflex kept working and sending up slobber-lots of slobber. I grabbed her and hit her back while she was upside down. This wasn't successful. I asked the huz to please call 911 because she wasn't acting right and although she could breathe it seemed like the penny may have been stuck.
The paramedics arrived about 10 minutes later. They listened to her chest and back and weren't too concerned since she could breathe. They said her behavior was a little a-typical, we knew. She wasn't acting normal and her gag reflex kept contracting. We were concerned.
We were told to observe her and to take her to Childrens Hospital if anything seemed strange, we were on high alert. I got her a cup of milk and she started to guzzle it. A few minutes later I hear her throw up. The huz yells, "SHE THREW UP!" I yelled, "CALL YOUR PARENTS WE NEED TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL!" But then he yells, "I SEE THE PENNY! SHE THREW UP THE PENNY!" We were so relieved. She's okay and is her peppy ol' self
We can breathe again.
