Hi all - I'm so glad we found this web site. It has been a bit comforting to read your comments - it at least shows we're not the only ones who are scared and confused.

Our 3 year old son had an anaphylactic reaction last Thursday night after accidentially eating a bit of peanut butter (I didn't know he was allergic but I suspected he might have a sensitivity). We called 911 and he was taken to the hospital and now he's fine thank goodness!). But, now we're faced with a whole new world for our son and ourselves. We are waiting to see a pediatric allergist and we're hoping he'll answer many of our questions. In the meantime, we feel the weight of the world on our shoulders as we try to train our nanny and the nursery school about his peanut allergy when we don't feel we know everything we need to yet. I guess one day at a time - hopefully it will get easier as we learn and get into more of a routine with living with his pa. Thanks for listening! Glad to be a member - we're not alone!
