so mad ...

Recommended Posts

I am so mad, pissed off, scared and frustrated...

 

Last Thursday, my daughters teacher called and left a message on my answering machine saying that my daughter (she is 5) was complaning that her body was itching...and that the rasch was getting worst and worst. She tehn called my FI, who rushed to teh school as well as tok the time to dill 911 for the some rescue... he had a feeling the school wouldn't, and they didn't! I've told them a million times what to do and who to call in case this ever happened : "we know what to do, we are familliar with this", they tell me!

 

THIS IS THE 2ND TIME THIS YEAR THEY CALL ME !!!! SHE IS ALLERGIC TO PEANUTS AND THE SCHOOL IS PEANUT FREE...or they say it is...WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLEhuh.gif

 

They all know she is very allergic (if she touches it, she reacts badly).

 

We were in the hospital until 4 am (her pressure ws too low to come back home).

 

I am not allergic to anything but the doctor told me that it would be the same as having a poison ivy ich all over your body.

 

She is only 5 and I couldn't take away her pain and agony...

 

Each time she gets in contact with peanuts, the reactions gets worst so I cannot imagine next time (hopefully no next time...) she reacts... It was so bad last Thursday.

she always has her epipen with her. I had a nice belt made just for her that has her epipen + Benadryl in it.

 

Epipen is only to be use when the patient has breathing problem... you don't give it when the person has urtica ( like hives).

 

Epipen is not "the perfect medecine" that cures everything! You need to take it only when needed. The reason for this is that since every allergic reaction gets worst and worst each time, that means you need more treatments each time. Ig.if she take her epipen, maybe the next time she will need 2 or more...

 

If benadryl doesn't work (5 times the regualr dose- 25ml) every 4-6 hours, then people take cortezone shots to releve some pain...

That's awful that the school isn't taking the right precautions! Its really surprising that they didn't think to call 911. Peanut allergies can be minor, but if they know that your daughter has a bad one, they should be doing the right thing when the symptoms start! Not once it gets really bad...

 

Have you talked to the principal about it again?

well I can tell you that in my experience in education we are given very specific instructions about allergies or other medical conditions and if we don't follow them I am pretty sure we could lose our jobs, even if we are tenured, but the school nurse is the one who is responsible for diseminating the info and then if its something we don't feel we can handle we are to call her and the students principal right away.

At our school we can not call 911 without the parent being present or permission. We had a 5 year old get shot in the leg( the fatty part of the calf) from a stray bullet amile away and couldnt get in contact with mom. the nurse dialed 911 and the mother tried to sue.

 

I am so sorry that your daughter has problems with peanuts. It may not have been the school. My son takes peanut butter and jelly EVERYDAY for lunch, maybe it was a friend that had it and passed her something.

I have a co-worker whose nephew just started school this year (also 5) and he is highly allergic to peanuts and a bunch of other foods. She was telling me about how nervous her sister was for him to go to school and I can't blame her, especially after hearing your story! It's scary enough to entrust people you don't know with the well being and safety of your children, but when you have to worry about something like this, it just makes me never want to entrust the safety of my daughter to anyone! and she doesn't even have any allergies, I can't imagine how you must feel!

we get the same instructions every single year. the first thing we are supposed to do is call the school nurse, who will then call 911, or tell me to do it, but i can't call 911 w/o her instructions.

why did the teacher call you? where was the nurse?

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
