Holy crap! So I tried to get her to blow her nose and all she did was suck in....NO! We stopped that immediately. I called our pediatrician and they could not see her until 3:45 because of low staff. The nurse suggested I try putting Vaseline in her nose and attempt to push out the rock. It did not work. Off to our favorite urgent care place we went.
I cannot say enough about this place. Houston friends if you ever need immediate medical attention go to Houston Northwest Urgent Care by HEB. The place is amazing and quick. I am pretty sure I will soon be on the frequent flyer program.
Anyway, we were immediately seen. Elena was very calm. I was more nervous because I was imagining the screaming that was to come. Elena was oblivious to this...lucky girl.

So, she was papoosed. She was pretty unconcerned about this step. I told her it was a special coat to keep her safe. The doctor told her it was like the cocoon from "The Very Hungry Catepillar".
|All papoosed and still smiling|
Finally, all the snot generated by all the crying allowed the rock to slide down her little nose and she blew it out! Praise the Lord!!! She was relieved. I was relieved. The doctor was relieved. Thankfully there were no tears in her nostril.
|The rock...about the size of a pencil eraser|
