Problem of the Week 4/27/06

So I'm not sure how to say this other than just to say it: this morning, Stewart put a peanut up his nose.

I can't tell if he snorted it back into his mouth and swallowed it (which would be the best-case scenario) or if it is stuck in his brain somewhere.

I'm hoping that if that's the case, it is lodged there in such a way that causes the neurons to fire rapidly like John Travolta's in Phenomenon, only instead of becoming a genius and dying, he will learn to walk in a strait line and sit in a chair without falling. Actually, maybe that would be the best-case scenario.

I noticed that the affected nostril seems to be running and he is snorting a lot, but he isn't uncomfortable and he keeps telling me that the peanut is "okay now, it's all clean."

But I don't know - I mean, if it was lodged in his brain, would he be able to feel it?

I have no idea what the medical ramifications might be. Do you suppose he'll get a sinus infection?

I don't want to be that hysterical, weird mom who runs to the doctor's office for every little thing.

So I need some help... do I ignore it? Are there signs to watch out for? Should I have the doctor check it out?
