My son had to be rushed to the hospital today

 The kids are spending the weekend at their dad's and this morning I got a phone call from my ex saying my 6 yr old was having an allergic reaction and they were taking him to the hospital. So i met them there. His throat was swollen and was closing up making him not able to breath. When I got there they already had him hooked up to an IV and oxygen to help him breath and his lips were kinda blue.. I asked my ex what he ate to cause the reaction and he said he didn't know since he was just getting out of the shower and his gf gave the kids breakfast, So he called her to find out. She said she gave him Nutella, which has hazelnut in it. He is allergic to tree nuts! She claimed she didn't know even though I have heard my ex tell her twice what he is allergic to. btw i'm not blaming her, her comment just pisses me off since I know she knows. The kept him in the hospital for a few hours to make sure he was ok. He ended up coming home with me instead of going back to his dad's (his choice). The last time he had an allergic reaction was when he was 2 yr old when we first found out her was allergic to tree nuts, Today was one of the scariest days of my life and I hope we won't have to go through this again!

How scary! Glad you aren't putting any blame on the other person because i'm sure she feels guilty enough. Hope the little one feels better. Allergic reactions are no fun.

That's so scary! Hopefully they will be much more careful with what they're giving him from now on.

Glad he is doing better. You may want to talk to his doctor about an epi pen.
