what to do with a foreign object up nose

can you see it?

The white thing is an actual BATTLESHIP Peg that Clayton managed to stuff up his nose. Photo was taken in the ER at children's. After much debate on the how to get at it, a bottle of AFRIN and the $150 ER copay the thing fell out on its own!

The AFRIN seemed to cause the swelling to go down enough to release the peg and it came flying out while we were playing in good ole' exam room 1.

I have also been told my Sage-like Father that you can blow (rescue breath style) into the mouth and plug the "other" nostril and blow. Unfortunately I have not tested this method (and hope I never get to)
