Hi my name is Jennifer and I live in Tasmania Australia, I have a 13 1/2 daughter Danielle. She was a very sickly baby and failed to thrive, very under weight. Doctors told me to wein her and force the bottle on her as my milk was no good. Did not work, she never took milk and the more milk products I gave her the sicker she got. So breast fed for 17 months. When I stopped feeding her asthma and ezema arrived, allergy testing followed with Peanuts, tomatoes, pineapple, latex cats and dust mites being the bad ones. Has been in hospital 3 times a year every year since then with the years 10 to 13 being her wellest years. Turned 13 not long ago and was in hosiptal, easter, may and Sept. She wakes up in the night and cant breathe, usually asthma attacks severe enough for hosital. Last time was different, she yelled for me, had a seizure, and was not breathing for around 10 min. cpr done by 15 year old daughter as mum and dad were of no use.PANINK BIG TIME think this one may have been a anaphaletic shock some how. Looking forward to talking to you all.

Hi Jenny, and welcome to the board.
Well done to your 15 year old daughter. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Have you all been trained on CPR?
I can understand panicing. None of us really knows what will happen until it does.
