My husband and I are considering a transferr to Seattle, Washington. Our number one concern is our 5 year old PA daughter who is starting Kindergarten in the Fall. How are the school systems in that area? Are there any support groups? Good private schools? We can move anywhere within a reasonable driving distance from Seattle, as my husband will be working at home all but a few days a month when he has to be in Seattle.

We currently are living in Florida, but moved from Silverdale, WA. We may be moving back the end of May 2002. If we do I will contact you and hopefully we can start a good support group there. At least now you have a new law that allows the EMT's to administer the Epi pen and carry them. I am sure you are glad to know this since, as you know hospitals in Kitsap County are very few. The bad thing is there are only 11 states that allow the EMT's to carry them, and they are usually the first to respond to a 911 call. But always remember to tell the 911 people that your child is having a anaphylactic reaction to insure they have the correct medicine with.

Are there any parents of PA kids here from the Tri-Cities? I'm particularly interested in meeting parents of toddlers and infants so that we could form a playgroup. (My DS and DD are 13 months old, and my DS is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. We're working to eliminate all nut products from our household.)
