WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Jenna Evans of California had a dream on Tuesday night of swallowing her 2.4-carat diamond engagement ring.
- On Wednesday morning, she noticed her engagement ring was missing and realized that she had swallowed it during her sleep.
- After seeing a gastroenterologist and undergoing an endoscopy, Evans, who is set to marry fiancé, Bobby Howell in May 2020, had her engagement ring back.
Jenna Evans of California had a dream on Tuesday about being on a high-speed train that was racing down the tracks with her fiancé when some “bad guys” appeared.
The only way to save her was to swallow her 2.4 carat diamond engagement ring. So, the 29-year-old did… and then she woke up.
On Wednesday morning, Evans was relieved that the scary scene had just been one bizarre dream. But then, she noticed her engagement ring was missing.
“When I woke up in the morning, there was no ring on my finger,” Evans told “Today.” “I couldn’t help but laugh at it, and then I had to wake my fiance up and tell him that I had swallowed my engagement ring.”
Evans went to an urgent care clinic. She was advised not to let the ring pass naturally through her system, and instead referred her to a specialist.
A gastroenterologist immediately performed an upper endoscopy by inserting a small camera device down her throat.
Evans wrote in a Facebook post that she was crying when she signed the release forms for the upper endoscopy. She said she was afraid she would die during the procedure and not get to marry her fiancé, Bobby Howell.
“I waited a long time for that damn engagement ring and I WILL marry Bobby Howell DAMNIT,” Evans wrote.
Doctors were able to locate the engagement ring in Evans’ intestines, just beyond her stomach. Her fiancé returned the ring to her on Thursday.
“Bobby finally gave my ring back this morning – I promised not to swallow it again, we’re still getting married and all is right in the world,” she wrote.
The engaged couple plans to get married in May of next year.
“I’m so grateful that everybody can laugh about it, because it truly is a very funny story,” Evans added.
