Ok, so now Hunter knows that nuts and peanuts are the same thing!  AND he’s allergic to them both!

I didn’t notice that Hunter had grabbed a Nutty Buddy ice cream treat yesterday when we were visiting my aunt here in town.  Well, just a few minutes later, he comes in screaming and crying!  So, after many phone calls and talks to the nurses, we go to the ER.  When you mention “peanut reaction,” they get you to the back quickly.  After two failed attempts at an IV, we get some meds orally.  Two hours later, the hives are gone and so’s the cough!  Praise the Lord!

My Dave Ramsey emergency fund will take a hit with this dr visit.  Our coverage excludes Hunter’s allergies for two years b/c we changed plans.  I don’t know if a peanut allergy is the same as a hay fever allergy in their book so we’ll see.

Thank you God for nurses and doctors that work on weekends and holidays!  Thanks for the medicine You provided for Hunter!  Thank you God for keeping me calm and collected through the whole ordeal!  And please protect Hunter from any more peanuts!!!!
