Just in the neck of time.
Doctors in Kansas treating a 7-month-old girl thought the child had a swollen gland, until they made a frightening discovery — a feather poking out of the baby’s neck.
Initially, doctors prescribed antibiotics and sent little Mya Whittington home with her parents, but then her jaw swelled to the size of a golfball, according to the Associated Press.
In a follow up visit, a doctor saw something poking out of Mya’s swollen jaw. She put on gloves and plucked a feather out of the baby’s neck.
