Had to take him to the emergency room. Has a tear in his lung. Please pray.

He turned out to be OK.

He accidentally swollowed a piece of beef jerky that was “too hard” and that punctured his esophagus which allowed too much air around his lungs that threatened to collapse one or maybe two of them. It didn’t happen because the hole healed enough through the course of the night to stop continued rise in air pressure and gave the body time to absorb the air already there. Anyway, two separate hospitals and one ambulance ride between them, he made it through the night without major incident, only suspense. Crazy all that over a piece of beef jerky. :egor:

He said he will never eat jerky again. Apparently it was quite taxing and painful when the air got in there.

Good this crisis ended well. I'd been thinking and praying about you guys.

Glad he's doing ok.

Not our kids, but other kids at our house, ended up at the ER years ago. One had a dry macaroni up his nose. Another had a sugar crisp or sugar smack or some small piece of cereal stuck down in his ear. I don't remember any beef jerky episodes.
