Well it's been a pretty stressful day for Alison. This morning she accidentally swallowed a mouth swab. I'm not going to get into the details of how it happened - as it shouldn't have. But we've been at the hospital getting x-rays tonight to make sure it's not going to be an issue. And the doctors think it will most likely pass naturally on its own. Let's hope so. But she's doing okay and we'll be leaving the hospital tonight. It was pretty intense this morning when it happened though. Thankfully my mom was there shortly afterwards to help. But Alison can't feel the obstruction anymore, so it's moved into the GI tract. Her aunt and cousins came into town this afternoon and have been good company to have around through all of this. Hopefully she'll rest well and the swab won't cause any issues over the next few days as it works its way out. Thanks for your continued support.
