Sadie Bristow

Note that the words intolerance and allergy are used interchangeably here.  I have to wonder if they didn't realise just how serious their daughter's condition was.  Another source says the location they visited uses milk products in their gardening. 

Also, 16 doses of Epi?  Wow, I wonder if that's an exaggeration, but it could be possible over time as a critical lifesaving attempt; doctors and paramedics can go through a lot of Epi in emergencies. 

So sad.   :'(

Elijah’s  Dad spoke on local TV the other day.  It was so hard to watch.  :'(

From Elijah’s parents:

"My wife Dina and I spend hours reading your messages. They are a lifeline during this horrible time period. We are moved to tears to know that we are not alone, both in our heartbreak and in our concern for safety around allergies in schools. We also want to say that while we remain absolutely devastated over the loss of our sweet son Elijah, the outpouring of love from across the country has inspired us to ensure that his death did not happen in vain. As Elijah’s parents, we will use our voices to draw attention to *completely preventable* life-threatening allergic reactions in U.S. daycares and schools. These preventable tragedies must come to an end. Every day since Elijah left us has been so painful. We come home to an apartment that has an eerie kind of emptiness. It is filled with his toys, his pictures on our walls, and the sounds of one child, the other missing. Elijah’s brother Sebastian asked us how we could go see his baby brother in Heaven, "Can we ride a rocket ship to reach to him?" he asked, and our hearts broke all over again. The reality hits us, subsides, and then hits us again, and our hearts break each time. Your messages of love, support, and shared experiences are holding us up. We may be too overwhelmed to respond to everyone, but we want to thank you. Focusing on advocacy for other children like Elijah gives us hope. You give us hope. While we can no longer protect Elijah, hold him in our arms, or kiss his sweet little face, we can still fight for kids like him. And that’s exactly what we intend to do. With Gratitude and Determination,
Elijah’s Parents, Dina & Thomas"

What a tragedy—both of them.

It should be noted: Tanner died in January. :’(

And another one :-[ :-[ :-[ Tanner Sorenson.


Apparently, his epipens malfunctioned. I have chills right now. He was 14. Made a mistake, ate a cookie without knowing ingredients.

This is a huge story here in NY right now.  Horrible that it happened at all, but I’m glad it’s getting so much attention.  :'(
