On Monday night Dax and Grace were playing around on the floor and we noticed that Dax seemed as if he was choking/gagging on something but then he stopped. Well, about 30 seconds later he did it again so we quickly stood him up but he was fine again. Gene and I knew that he must have had something in his mouth but didn't know what? We asked him what he had put in his mouth and guess what he said!!!!!
We did not see it in his mouth and therefore assumed he had swallowed it! We still don't know if he swallowed it on purpose or by accident. They were roughhousing and rolling around the floor together so he could have just done it by accident? Who knows? We don't normally leave money laying around but Grace had been playing with her piggy bank about an hour earlier so he must have gotten it then!
We called the doctor's office and they said as long as he doesn't have any breathing problems or stomach distress then we do not need to worry and that he would would just pass it in his diaper in a few days. The problem with that is someone had to go through his poop every day until we found it because if we didn't then he would have needed an x-ray to find it!
Since Gene works during the day and Dax seems to poop every morning........ Guess who's job was it to check his yucky poop!! I don't mind changing diapers that much but I usually try to do it as fast as I can but in this case I had to make sure to find that penny!! Gross huh!!!
After checking his diapers for 2 straight days and almost throwing up both times!!! The third day I finally found it and Guess what??
I found TWO Pennies in there!!!!!!!!!!!!
In all seriousness, I am so glad that he is okay and it didn't faze him one bit!!!
