standby Posted June 17, 2005 Report Share Posted June 17, 2005 My 4yr old son is VERY, VERY allergic to peanuts. Doctor said if he ever ingests any thing with peanuts to give epi-pen (epinephrine injection), Benadryl and get to Emergency room immediately. Yesterday he and my 7 year old daughter were at basketball camp, daughter noticed son sitting with another boy eating crackers, went to check and they were peanut butter crackers Long story, short...I had to take my son to the emergency room with quickness! The VHO did not let me down. Mother-in-law called local PD to request an escort, dispatch said no one patrolling at that time, "have at it!" Yes, I did. Wife is an RN and was working last night, she alerted emergency room. I was there before they could get ready (normally 17 minute drive). For all those folks that wonder "why do you want a fast TRUCK?" Some of us have to haul stuff and this is the most important occasion imagineable to have to haul ass too! Boy is OK, him and mom are still at hospital. He should be home this afternoon. I LOVE MY TRUCK! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
