peanut allergy on tv show
I am writing to say that I appreciate the fact that some show (I did not watch) made a show about how severe peanut allergies are.
I was spending the day w/ my sis-in-law today and she was telling me about an ER show that she couldn't remember when it was on but was supposed to be one of the real-life ER shows that she watched.
She said that a mother brought a son in to an ER and could not tell the dr what was wrong because she was Greek and spoke little English. The father of the child shows up from the restauraunt that the family owns and translates drs stabilize the child the father goes in to visit the child then he gets worse again drs stabilize him again grandpa shows up from the restauraunt visits the child he gets worse then drs have to stabilize him again. All in all come to find out the family cooked w/ peanuts and it was on their clothes
It took my sister in law watching this show to really understand how serious this allergy is.
No matter how much we explained No matter what we said I t took this show that I never ever seen So I guess it was a good thing that that they made this show
She told me after telling me about this show that thought about my son.
I guess we never know what it takes to get through to some people but whatever it takes
Sorry if I went on too long
