Little Melvin can't be exposed to peanuts

Recommended Posts

I ate some peanuts this weekend.

Last week my husband was away on business. So he had an affair. With peanuts. I can always tell because he does his own laundry when he gets home.

I think we need to rename this thread. The e-mom fan club. :hey:

Modified, with a nod to Mojo for his MUCH earlier suggestion. I couldn't, however, make this an homage to e-mom and not acknowledge the other fine woman that came from the peanut board, or their sisters who were already here.

fixed

I missed that post DW. :wub: Feeling much better now.

Ok AnnaMarie...your turn to be serenaded...

"I Burn For You"

Now that I have found you

In the coolth of your evening smile

The shade of your parasol

And your love flows through me

Though I drink at your pool

I burn for you, I burn for

You and I are lovers

When night time folds around our bed

In peace we sleep entwined

And your love flows through me

Though an ocean soothes my head

I burn for you, I burn for

Stars will fall from dark skies

As ancient rocks are turning

Quiet fills the room

And your love flows through me

Though I lie here so still

I burn for you, I burn for you

I burn...

..your turn to be serenaded...

:waitingturntobeserenaded: :whistle:

For Mrs. BSR: I'm not singing you some angst riddled industrial grunge nonsense - I picked a beautiful timeless song with a touch of class and a dreamy disposition. Just like you, sweetheart:

ONLY YOU - The Platters

Only you can make oh this world seem right

Only you can make the darkness bright

Only you and you alone

Can thrill me like you do

And fill my heart with love for only you

Only you can make oh this change in me

For it's true you are my destiny

When you hold my hand I understand

The magic that you do

You're my dream come true

My one and only you

Only you can make this change in me

For it's true you are my destiny

When you hold my hand I understand

The magic that you do

You're my dream come true

My one and only you

Old school. A little sumfing from the CatCat-Stevens's Lyrics - Cant Keep It In Lyrics Oh I can’t keep it in, I can’t keep it in, I’ve gotta let it out.I’ve got to show the world, world’s got to see, see all the loveLove that’s in me. I said, why walk alone, why worry when it’sWarm over here. you’ve got so much to say, say what you mean,Mean what you’re thinking, and think anything.Oh why, why must you waste you’re life away,You’ve got to live for today, then let it goOh, lover, I want to spend this time with you,There’s nothing I wouldn’t do, if you let me know.And I can’t keep it in, I can’t hide it and I can’t lock it away.I’m up for your love, love heats my blood,Blood spins my head, and my head falls in love, oh.No, I can’t keep it in, I can’t keep it in, I’ve gotta let it out.I’ve gotta show the world, world’s got to know,Know of the love, love that lies low, soWhy can’t you say, if you know, then why can’t you say.You’ve got too much deceit, deceit kills the light,Light needs to shine, I said shine light , shine light.Love, that’s no way to live your life,You allow too much to go by, and that won’t do.No, lover. I want to have you here by my sideNow don’t you run, don’t you hide, while I’m with you.’n I can’t keep it in, I can’t keep it in, I’ve gotta let it out.I’ve got to show the world, world’s got to see, see all the loveLove that’s in me. I said, why walk alone, why worry when it’sWarm over here. you’ve got so much to say, say what you mean,Mean what you’re thinking, and think anything. why not? Now why why why not?

Teenager with peanut allergy dies after a kiss

CTV.ca News Staff

A Quebec teenager with a peanut allergy has died after kissing her boyfriend who had eaten a peanut butter sandwich hours earlier.

Fifteen-year-old Christina Desforges died Monday. She went into anaphylactic shock and in spite of being given an adrenalin shot, could not be revived.

Desforges lived 250 km north of Quebec City in Saguenay.

The official cause of the teen's death has not yet been released.

Pediatric allergist Karen Sigman told CTV's Tania Krywiak if peanuts are still on the tongue or the lips, they can still cause a reaction.

Sigman says teenagers with allergies have to let their friends know.

"If they're going to be dating somebody that they have to tell the people they're close to that they're allergic to make sure the people they're with aren't in contact with those nuts or peanuts," Sigman said.

Parents of children with nut and peanut allergies have the added pressure of constantly watching what their offspring are eating.

Terri Elituv, mother of 12-year-old Jake Elituv, told CTV News they always watch out for snacks that include peanuts, or traces of the legume.

"Everything is just sort of fraught with this underlying tension, you're anxious about what he's going to have, what he could touch," she said.

Elituv's other concern is what happens when her son becomes more independent in his teen years -- and might not share his allergy concerns with friends at parties.

Desforges' parents are planning a memorial service Saturday.

:o If my kids were allergic, I'd probably be a Peanut Nazi too.

Absolutely. Man, I feel for the boy in this story, and for the family that lost a daughter. :cry:

I don't mean to be insensitive...but what is going on when I can probably be brought up on "assault with a deadly weapon" charges just for sticking my finger in a jar of Skippy and running around like E.T. with my finger sticking out?

I'd forgotten to update. Thanks for the bump.

At Christmas there was a bit of a row when Pastor Tom by edict declared Santa Claus would not be allowed to visit the children in class nor after the children's celebration service (Kids go to the alter during service shaking bells on wrists loops and shining candle shaped flashlights while more or less singing the same song, quite beautiful really if you are a parent, but otherwise too sacchrine for most peoples tastes.) Pastor Tom believes the secularists and their Idolotrous symbol Santa will lead to the distruction of Christmas. (His epistle to the coloradans-not as famous as Paul's Epistle to the Wookies or whoever- actually stated he could not stand by and watch Christmas turn into Santamas. Twas a stirring call to the faith no doubt. Regardless some of the Mom's, including Mother Melvin, put their feet down. They demanded there be a Santa and so it was.

The night of the service all the kids arrived in their finery. Almost all of the girls arrived in the exact same red velvet dress from Target with white faux feather collar (I know this because that's where we got our daughter's outfit.) The service went off without a hitch. Well one hitch as one wrist bracelet of jingle bells flew from one youngster's wrist into the asembled worshipers and or disinterested parents and grandparents who were there solely to watch their kids.

The service ended and the big moment came. Upon filing out of the chapel/sanctuary, or whatever Lutherans call it to the school portion of the complex we ran smack dab into that jolly old elf himself. Santa was resplendant in cheap suit, false beard, drty rubber boots, and work gloves. Each child went up to Santa to sit on his lap and make their request. Come Little Melvin's turn things went bad. Apparently the rented Santa suit had been exposed to peanuts and Melvin swelled with hives at an alarming rate. His skin bulged, his eyes swelled shut, and he started choking with his airway closing. His epi pens were in the administrative offices. The person with the keys could not be located and Pastor Tom rushed up to kick the tempered safety glass in the door out to gain access. Pastor Tom was unsuccessful. My wife asked me to force the door (I'm rather large so I'm an obvious choice for such actions) when the head of the school came in from the parking lot with the keys making any attempts on my part unneccessary. She secured the pens and along with the mother administered to Melvin who showed rather rapid improvement but still needed to be taken by ambulance to the hospital for further treatment.

You would think the mother would carry an epi-pen in her purse anytime she went anywhere with little Melvin. :rolleyes:

One would think. Christmas distractions and what not. One of the other mothers actually had an epi pen in her car as her child is allergic to bees apparently. She got her car first aid kit and came in. It had an epi pen, benedryl, prednisone among other things but before any decision to try to use foriegn meds was made the situation began to resolve.

Is Melvin Dead yet? My money is on a carelessly discarded payday.

This isn't funny, a friend's child (4 year old) nearly died because he ate half a peanut over at another friends house.

I guess the parents should be doing a better job. How can you trust that a four year old is safe at another residence without the parent being there.?
