Also, just because the Epi Pen says "for home use" on it, that does not mean "leave it at home and don't bring it out into the world where the allergens are."
Thank goodness we live in a large urban area and not out in the boonies where it might take fifteen or twenty minutes to get to a hospital, so when your kid stops breathing he is only minutes away from help.
That is all.
P.S. the kid was ok after epinephrine, steroids and magnesium, and a bunch of nebulizers.
