Tonight while Gregg and I were 45 minutes away Jasmine had a allergic reaction. Thank God for Stuie! The kids brought frozen green beans in to start for dinner. Stuie went into his mode as we call it. Jeremiah took the food outside, then the kids called us. Jeremiah opened the food outside to put some in a bowl, to see if the contents were contaiminated or the bag. There was a peanut in the green beans. Jasmine was inside the house. We kept calling and talking Jasmine saying she was okay, then she wasn't okay anymore. I was talking on my cell to Jeremiah to remind him what to do to take care of his sister AND Greggs cell to call the ambulance.
If it weren't for Stuie, pointing out the problem with the green beans, the kids would have cooked the beans with the peanut. This could have killed Jasmine. Gregg and I were so scared, Jasmine has never been by herself when she had a reaction. The kids were GREAT. They did everything like we had pracited. Jeremiah made sure Jasmine took her oral meds and Jasmine gave herself the EpiPen. The doctors and staff were so impressed that the kids knew what to do and stayed calm. During Jasmine's stay at the ER, we took turns staying with Jasmine. Including Jeremiah. He needed time with his sister to prove to himself she was going to be okay.
Stuie did great too. After the Jasmine took the meds and Epi, I told Jeremiah to put Stuie in his kennel. Stuie knew he needed to be in his kennel out of the way of everyone. He was excited to see his girl when we came home!
The next few days will be L O N G. As par we will need to wake Jasmine up every two to three hours for the next two to four days. We all take turns checking on her.
I have checked with FAAN to see how I need to handle this. I will be making phone calls on Monday.
Stuie has been WONDERFUL since we returned from the hospital. He is in super mode. He knows something happened and he is double and triple checking everything in the kitchen. As normal, we stopped and picked up some no cook and easy meals for the next few days. Stuie was in the kitchen checking everything. He is wanting to check everything more than once. I keep telling him he has done his job after the first check or sniff. There is no residue in the kitchen at all. Jeremiah took care of that along with taking care of his sister. Wow, he did a LOT tonight. What a great kid!!
