A woman shared an unusual experience on her Facebook page.
Jenna Evans writes that she dreamt that she swallowed her engagement ring.
Perhaps she swallowed it when she was awake. She thought what she did happened in her dream. Or did she do it when she was still asleep?
Either way, when she woke up the ring was gone.
She told her fiance she thought she swallowed it.
In her dream, she writes, “he told me I had to swallow my ring to protect it; so I popped that sucker off, put it in my mouth and swallowed it with a glass of water riiiight about the time I realized what I was doing. I assumed this too was a dream.”
The crazy dream – which turned out to be real – was so crazy that she laughed and laughed.
She laughed all the way to the hospital.
She laughed in the hospital room.
Her engagement ring was in her stomach.
Her fiance “told me I had to swallow my ring to protect it; so I popped that sucker off, put it in my mouth and swallowed it with a glass of water,” Evans wrote.
Her Facebook post and the x-ray of the ring in her stomach has been shared more than 66,000 times in one week.
“The doctor ordered an Xray and seemed pretty shocked when she walked back in with a second doctor and showed me that sure enough, my ring was right there in my stomach!” she wrote.
Evans writes that she knew the ring was in there, and it wasn’t pleasant.
“I could definitely feel it in my guts, it was starting to really hurt and make us nervous.”
The laughing at stopped by now because the seriousness of the situation was sinking in.
The doctor told Evans that it would be best not let “nature take its course” with this ring.
The medical advice was for her to receive an endoscopy to get the ring out.
She needed to fill out a release form in case she died during the procedure.
She swallowed the ring on a Tuesday, and her fiance gave it back to her on a Thursday.
“I promised not to swallow it again, we’re still getting married and all is right in the world,” Evans writes.
