|A strange piece of metal fell out of my daughters ear!u
My kids and I were getting ready to do some reading before bed.My 8year old daughter was rubbing her ear with a tissiue;we noticed a small amount of blood;when a object fell out of her ear, we thought it was wax, but noticed some metal.We than looked and seen it was all metal,round with about 4 holes in it.It is about the size of the "O"key on the key board.
((NUFORC Note: We express our gratitude to Barb Becker, of Missouri Investigator Group, for following up on this case. Ms. Becker determined that the metal object was a tiny medical device, inserted into the eardrum of the young girl, in order to equalize pressure between the atmosphere, and the middle ear. PD))
((REPORT FROM BARB BECKER, MISSOURI INVESTIGATOR GROUP,
Met up with ((name deleted)). Got the piece of metal found in his childs ear. After talking for awhile he told me she had had an ear infection and had a shunt put in. Well, I knew right then what it was. Found this pic on the internet. The piece from the ear is the little round piece with the holes.
Can you imagine a doctor left that in her ear!
Anyway, case closed. Thought you might like to know.
