Had to give Epi yesterday to a highly allergic child. Minutes after ingestion, stomach pain and extremity itching. I know the student well and gave Epi within 5 -6 minutes of sx's.  EMS and police actually thanked me for being so quick. EMS said they usually arrive to see a kid further into distress.  This child is an ANA kid for sure as is her brother.

Thankfully she's okay and mom came to me this morning saying she is grateful her child has such a good nurse.  It's nice to get a compliment instead of complaint once in a while.
