Wow, AnnaMarie, that ride must have been the longest of your life. It is heartbreaking.

My friend went through the same thing . . . she had to watch the trauma team administer 4 epi-pens to her 3-year old son (he's ana to milk, had a couple of ounces by accident).

I hope you never have to take a ride like that again.

I am always thankful every year when I can turn in my daughter's expired epi's to the pharmacy and pick up a new prescription; I am just so grateful for not having to have administered them and I hope I never have to ! I guess we have to grateful for the small things.

Eek AM - what a story.But I do like your cool head in an emergency.

Michelle, I hope you never have to use the needle just because that would mean your child was anaphylaxing.

But don't fear it. In an emergency, it's amazing. No kid is going to love a needle, but they are going to love that the horrible, scary reaction has stopped. That part's brilliant.

I know what you mean. My friend had to administer the epi-jr to her son another time when he went ana and stopped breathing. She said it was amazing. He started breathing and was up and moving around and said to her "hey mommy, I can breathe again, watch me !". That stuff is amazing !
