Brief Answer:
Rush to hospital.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mr XXXXX.

The first thing to do now is to give her plenty of water.

And rush to the nearest hospital that is open 24 hours.

Phenyl can cause severe inflammation of the stomach and esophagus, and needs to be removed as much as possible.

This is an emergency, and can not be taken lightly.

So please take your wife to the hospital right now.

I can answer your questions once everything is settled down.
