Body: Body: I am re-posting this, if you have children then read this
Yesterday, my youngest daughter, Halle , who is 4,
was rushed to the emergency room by her father for being
severely lethargic and incoherent.
He was called to her
school by the school secretary for being 'very VERY sick.
He told me that when he arrived, Halle was barely
sitting in the chair.
She couldn't hold her own head up
and when he looked into her eyes, she couldn't focus them.
He immediately scooped her up and rushed her to the
ER, and then called me.
When we got there, they ran blood test after blood
test and did x-rays, every test imaginable.
Her white blood
cell count was normal, nothing was out of the ordinary.
The ER doctor told us that he had done everything that he could
do so he was sending her to Saint Francis for further tests.
Right when we were leaving in the ambulance, her
teacher came to the ER and, after questioning Halle's
classmates, we found out that she had licked hand sanitizer
off her hand, Hand sanitizer, of all things.
But it makes sense.
These days they have all kinds of
different scents and when you have a curious child, they
are going to put all kinds of things into their mouths.
When we arrived at Saint Francis, we told the ER
doctor there to check her blood alcohol level, and yes we
did get weird looks, but they did it.
The results showed her
blood alcohol level was 85% -- six hours after we first
took her. There's no telling what it would have been if
we would have requested it at the first ER.
Since then, her school and a few surrounding schools
have taken this out of the classrooms of all the lower grade
classes, but what's to stop middle and high school
kids from ingesting the stuff?
After doing research on the Internet, we have found
out that it only takes 3 squirts of the stuff to be fatal in
a toddler. For her blood alcohol level to be so high was to
compare someone her size to drinking something 120 pr oof.
So please PLEASE don't disregard this because I
don't ever want anyone else to go through what my family
and I have gone through.
Please send this to everyone you know who has
children or are going to be having children.
It doesn't matter what age
