Just gave Epi for the first time

  1. Happened at 11:25 this morning and am finally not shaking anymore. Kindergarten kiddo. Doing fine, under observation at ER right now for the next few hours. I need a glass (or three) of wine. Is it June 23rd yet????

    Whoa! So glad you were there for this child!

    Give us the details?? Known allergy? Exposure at lunch? How advanced were the student's symptoms?


    GREAT JOB! Have that wine tonight! Without you there, that child might have had a very different outcome!

    Did you get some epinepherine too!!

    It really is an amazing thing to see a person struggling, then the epi, and then whoosh the recovery.

    Excellent job
