Instagram post 2102790674458217725_3017939458 Kids swallow coins surprisingly often. My career totals over $5 now! When/if your child does this, seek immediate care if the coin feels like it’s “stuck” in the throat or chest (esophagus). If not, wait for it to pass (yep, that means straining every stool). If it’s been 5 days post ingestion and still no coin, go in for an X-ray. This coin was sitting on a large, hard stool. A junior fleets enema and some Miralax was all it took...voila, a penny!

Last year, 80,000 people died from the flu (source: CDC). That averages about 1600 in each state. •
Please remind your parents, family, and friends to get a flu shot.
