So THAT’S why he was breathing funny.

A wheel shaped Lego piece was found inside 6-year-old Isaak Lasson’s nose last week, after he was taken to see a new doctor after having difficulty with his breathing — in particular, with eating and sleeping — since he was 3-years-old. Previous doctors suspected an infection and had prescribed antibiotics, which did not help.

“We think he bent it in half — it’s pretty flexible — and that it opened up once it got into his sinuses,” Isaak’s father, Craig Lasson said.

When the final doctor finally noticed there was an object in Isaak’s nose, he asked the boy what he had put in his nose. “I put some spaghetti up there, but that was a long time ago,” Isaak told the doctor.
