The situation was the question if Eli swallowed a nail or not.
Eli was sleeping in the boys room as he has been the last few nights. Somehow they were playing and knocked one of the small shelves off the wall, and exposed some nails that were holding the shelf up.
All joe heard was a blood piercing scream and Luke yell "it is am emergency" so he flies up the steps. It wasn't Eli screaming but Luke and graham saying Eli had swallowed a nail.
Joe turns to Eli and says did you swallow a nail, he opens his mouth.
Joe tries to find nails and finds 3- one in Eli's bed, one in the wall, and one outside the door. There was still a nail in the wall, so we think they are all accounted for.
However we try to logically figure this out. The boys don't usually do blood piercing screams. They may scream to get our attention if we aren't in the same room but not blood piercing. Why would Eli keep opening his mouth or say " mouth" when asked where the nail was? Was the one in his bed the one he was playing with or is there another?
So I decided to play it safe since the holidays are coming up and go to the ER. Everytime he was asked about the nail he would open his mouth.
After about an hour and a half it was determined he did swallow the nail and it was in his tummy! So we are just waiting and seeing and praying it will pass on its own!
