My Kid with Nut Allergies

Posted Jun 18 2008 6:08pm
Every time we are at a restaurant or at a party, I am always pleasantly surprised that Tanner is the first one to say, "I am allergic to nuts. I can't have any nuts. Does that have nuts in it?" He says so quite matter-of-factly, without a trace of fear or nervousness in his voice.



And then I feel pride... and gratitude for this wonderful kid, who is like a light in my life. He has peanut and tree nut allergies. But to him, life is still something to be savored and experienced with gusto!



I wanted to share this video because I think it's important to note that using an Epi-pen so simple, that even a person as young as four is capable of doing it AND teaching others how to do it. (Note that he is using the TRAINER and not actually giving himself a shot in this video!)
