Drinking Games, Swallowing Quarters, and Google

Some time age I blogged about when PJ swallowed a quarter, and thankfully everything worked out fine (although I never did find that expensive coin).

I recently had the following email exchange with someone who left a comment on that old web page.

"PJ CHOKES ON A QUARTER -- 4.29.2004 ":


hello...
um i really hope this works...i'm pretty sure you
havent used this in like forever but i just swallowed a quarter and i
googled 'swallowing quarters' and i came across your blog and i was
just wondering if you ever found the quarter...??? like i called my
doctor and he said everything would be fine...but i'm kind of
worried...maybe if you read this you could email me at [REMOVED]

i know that this is probably like sooo bizarre to you...but i would
really find comfort in knowing everything turned out fine with your son?
thank you

How did you..? No wait I don't want to know. Anyway, now worries, if it can make it into the stomach, it can certainly find its way out. You might want to eat some small amount of white bread, as it can help move things along.

Also, I am not a doctor, so please don't think of me as any kind of authority on this. And PJ was fine.

good luck to you

when youre 19 and playing stupid drinking games with your friends, stupid things happen...
but oh my gosh, thank you so much.
like i talked to my doctor and everything but like its totally relieving to hear that someone whos probably like 15 years younger than me was ok.
i guess i'll just wait it out. haha
thank you!!!
