Yesterday I swallowed a fish hook. I got very lucky though, it stayed in my throat. We had taken a family day out to the park. We were swimming and running and playing. Then my aunt heather met us to try some fishing, and before mom even got to fish, I found this thing that smelled so good..like fish. I couldn't resist eating it. Next thing I knew, there was a line hanging out of my mouth and I couldn't stop choking and gagging. My mom's had to rush me to an emergency vet and we had to drive all over town to find one that had something called an endoscope. Finally we found one and they took my x-ray and sure enough I had swallowed a fish hook. Then the doctor started looking for the hook with the camera scope and he found it and was having trouble getting it out. The other lady started getting me ready for surgery and shaving my stomach and chest, and I heard the dr. say "let me just try one more time". Thank goodness he got it! Now mom is saying she caught the biggest and most expensive fish in the lake. Mom still can't believe someone would just drop a hook with line on the ground. I hope, and so does mom, that next time I can resist that irresistable smell of fish.
