My little piggy bank

Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Finley decided to turn himself into a human piggy bank yesterday. He woke up from his nap complaining of stomach and back pain. After about 30 minutes of this, he told me that he swallowed a penny. Seriously. I'd expect that of Oliver but not of Finley. We took him over to an urgent care and they located the penny stuck in his esophagus. So, we headed over to Phoenix Children's Hospital for surgery. Fun times.


They put the little guy under and fished out the world's most expensive penny.


Finley was a trooper and is back to his normal silly self today. I guess we'll have to start feeding him dollar bills from now on.

Oh Grace...I'm shaking my head right now because I thought my boys had done it all...but then this. Is it wrong of me to be giggling a little too? I am reminded of my brother-in-law that came to his mother with horrible stomach pains and after they finally went to urgent care, it turns out that it was just gas. They call it the $10,000 fart. LOL! Glad he's okay though! For serious!!!!

It's ok to giggle Kellye. It's all we can do to not get totally upset over it. The $10,000 fart is cracking me up. I just got a call from billing at the hospital and this is shaping up to be the $10,000 penny. There goes Finley's first year of college tuition ;)
