5. How awful for your family!
Those allergic reactions are insanely scary. For everyone. I'm glad it turned out well for your son, and kudos to your ex for her bravery.

As far as what triggered it, we're thinking that it was the Brazil nut - she'd been eating the almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts without any problems, but once she put the brazil nut in her mouth, the reaction was immediate. I do know that reactions can be delayed, so we're not ruling out any of the tree nuts.

The doctor at the ER prescribed an epi-pen, she's been seen by her primary doctor (who gave me the contact information for a local support group of parents of children with food allergies, AND another epi-pen), and she has an appointment with the allergist on the 21st of January. Hopefully at that time, we'll be able to get a handle on what we're faced with.

I've been doing a lot of trolling on the internet, trying to find out information, but it sure doesn't beat a professional evaluation!
