Learning to Live with My Son's Anaphylaxis
Traveling with a toddler can be extremely nerve-wracking – especially when it’s your first child. My experience was no different.
While dining at a hotel restaurant, the waitress handed my two-year-old a sippy cup to go with the breakfast I had packed him. After he took his first sip, he started moving his tongue in a funny way and crying. I immediately knew what was wrong and kicked myself for not checking: the sippy cup was full of milk – not water. My son, Joseph, was having a severe allergic reaction.
