Toy Grenades are the new Q-Tip

Last night John Henry put a tiny plastic toy grenade in his ear. It got stuck. So stuck that none of the doctors we saw today could get it out. So stuck that he has to have surgery in five days to get it out. Sucks to be John Henry.
But honestly, it really bothers me that there is a toy stuck in his ear and I can’t do anything about it. He could get an infection. His ear drum might be busted. It’s fucked up.
I could let myself get upset and worried but that won’t change anything. I think the only person who has a right to freak out about this situation is John Henry. He’s convinced he’s at deaths door. Which makes me secretly giggle. Being a parent is hard, yo.
