Isaak Lasson can finally breathe at night — now that the Lego piece that's been jammed up his nose for three years has been removed.
The 6-year-old boy from Salt Lake City developed terrible sinus problems when he was just 3-years-old. But for years, doctors struggled to determine what was to blame, KSL.com reported.
"I felt so bad," Isaak's father, Craig Lasson, told KSL. "He was sleeping with his mouth open, trying to breathe."
Isaak went on multiple doctors' visits, but medicos told the Lassons to just put their son on antibiotics and he'd be fine.
It wasn't until late July that a doctor saw a strange-looking object up Isaak's nose and asked him what he thought it was.
"I put some spaghetti up there, but that was a long time ago," the child told the doctor, according to KSL.
That's when the Lasson family decided to take Isaak to a specialist who discovered a flexible Lego wheel covered by a ball of fungus up the child's nostril.
Isaak's father, Craig, said that the discovery was shocking given the size of the Lego piece.
