We are in our most horrified state when our loved one is in danger. I had my share of horror story on the night before travelling to Goa.
The packing was almost done. The Puris & the Theplas were made and packed. (Yes, my OCD has not completely subsided yet, i wanted Zini to have some home made food as long as possible). I was happy that this time we managed it smoothly. And it was time to sleep.
But, hubby wanted to watch Roadies, he couldn’t wait till we came back!!! He had already downloaded the show!!! The guy is a big fan of this show 🙄 , anyways i had to fold cloths so i agreed to do it in front of computer screen.
Meanwhile Zini decided that she wants some milk. So, i postponed the folding work and went into kitchen to make milk. I was about to pour the milk and i heard hubby shouting my name and asking me to rush…I rushed in to be told by Zini that something was in her nose!!!! We asked her what, and she came with her toy slate and showed a broken part of it!!! Our horror story had started…
I tried to see in her nose but couldn’t see anything..This made hubby think that probably she just felt that something was in but actually was nothing inside. But i felt otherwise. Immediately i made a call to her doctor while simultaneously referring to the “What to expect the toddler years” (I remember reading about foreign objects in nose in this book, but could not remember what!!!!).
Thankfully her doctor answered the call and gave me a very sound advice. She said, fake taking out something from the nose, if Zini says that nothing is in then nothing was really in. But if she says that the thing is really in then you immediately rush her to an ENT specialist….
I followed her advice and realised that something was really inside Zini’s nose. So i declared that we have to go to hospital. In the cold February night, I sweated, hubby sweated more and Zini started crying loudly….
So at 11.30 in the night, hubby went to take out the car, while i got the profusely crying Zini ready.
When i picked her up to go to the doctor, i suddenly felt something dropping on me!!! I saw that part of toy on me and Zini declaring “Abhi kuch nahi hai” (Nothing is in – the nose)!!!!!
Phew!!! One more call to the doctor ended our horror story….And we immediately rushed to sleep before anything else could happen!!!
