Right now, I'm just really upset, and riding on an emotional rollercoaster!!! I have a 7yr old son who suffers from anaphylaxis to tree nuts, and for the past 2 days our lives have been hell.....
I got a call yesterday afternoon while at work from my son's school, saying that he was having an allergy attack and that I needed 2 hurry !! Nobody could tell me anything about his current condition, just that I needed to hurry!! I was terrified, driving with my emergency flashers on praying that he would be ok!!!
I don't understand how this happened!!! He is supposed to be safe while he is there!! I pack his lunch, his snacks, he eats away from the other home packed lunches to avoid cross-contamination, there is even a nurse on staff!! but still something is slipping thru the cracks and Im terrified that the next time an epi-pen isn't going to be enough. I wish for once i could let him go be a kid without worrying he will die

Our school insists there be 2 epi-pens, it is something new they started. Based on the thinking sometimes one is not strong enough for the reaction they need a second one available for use within a 5 minute window of time (if I remember correctly).
