Epi Pen usage

For those that don’t know – that’s a used adult epi pen

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS talk with your kids about epi pen safety.

Then do it again.

Keep doing it.

Especially if they’re little.

We had a scare tonight.
I’m in the kitchen.
I have my back to the boys.
I hear a click.
Then a scream.
I turn and Gage has something hanging from the center of his hand.
Hmm, I thought, what could that be?
Must really hurt, he’s really screaming.
I run over and realize it was Nathan’s epi pen dangling from his little chubby hand.
I literally had to pull it out.
Gage screamed and Charlie cried for him.
It was so dramatic and intense.
Turns out Gage is just fine and learned a good lesson.

They make practice epi pens with no needle.

He told me he was trying to practice on his leg but couldn’t get the  needle to come out.

Yep, he’s just 4.
Phew

On a side note, always print out emergency room directions from your new home the day you move to a new state.
