Did it land heads up?

How old is she?

One of my boys did that at eleven months, and they had to use a scope to get it out...

It was an interesting x-ray...

These things happen with kids. Glad she's OK.

I dread the day when my daughter figures out that green peas fit nicely in the nostril.

Glad to know she's okay. No pics of the offending penny?

I've used my metal detector to see if my kid swallowed a coin he was playing with.  He got the all clear.   Glad she is OK.

I would take her to the doc just in case she swallowed more than one unless you actually saw her do it.  Newer pennies are zinc and can be pretty bad if swallowed.  Something with the zinc and the stomach acid IIRC.

glad she's fine

I'm going to Hell for thinking this but, that story reminds me of a line in the film "Grumpier Old Men"

"Kids swallow quarters all the time, now if she shits out two dimes and a nickel, then I'd start worrying!!"

Glad she's okay.

When I was 2, I swallowed a penny, and it came out the other end, it was all black. My mom still has the penny.

A penny puked is a penny earned

That reminds me of a funny story of my youth.

When I was a wee lad I was at a day care center while my Dad and Mom were at work.  It was while I was at this day care center that i discovered the joy, erm,  well not really joy,   but the.....whatever you want to call it, of putting things where they dont belong.  You see, I was laying on my back throwing a small pebble in the air when it happened to land in my nostril.  

Of course my natural reaction was to breathe in and the small pebble got sucked into my nose. And then when my parents were called I told them that the rock "fell up my nose."  i still haven't lived that one down yet and I'm 27 years old.

My son did that with a refrigerator magnet.  Scary indeed.

Put it back in, crank her arm and try again for TILT.

When I was a few years old I put an entire box of red Nerds candy up my nose.  Of course, when the snot started pouring out my parents freaked at the congealed-blood-looking stuff coming out of both nostrils.

I also stuck a lot of things in my ears, with a few doctors visits.  Somehow I still have excellent hearing.

That will teach her to play drinking games!

All the more reason to do away with the penny

My brother used to stick red hots up his nose.

Dumb bastard.
