So one of my current coworkers has been sick for a while, she has an on and off again pain in her stomach and slight fever. After going on for a several weeks into the month long range she went to the doctor. They had her come in and then scheduled an ultrasound for later that week to check out her stomach. Last Friday she felt so bad and was really worried what it might be thanks to WebMD so she left work and went to the ER. She had a lovely 9 hour stay at the hospital where they poked her with needles, ran different tests and finally did a chest and stomach X-ray which produced the answer - a chicken bone. What the hell??!!?? They found a small chicken bone stuck in her intestines, which was inflamed and caused her all this distress. Holy crap, how did she swallow a chicken bone??!!??!! The world will never know.
