PostSubject: The Dangers of Hand Sanitizers   Mon Dec 20, 2010 11:47 pm

I recieved this in an email and thought it best to share it with you all

Ok. I don't know where to begin because the last 2 days of my life have
been such a blur. Yesterday, My youngest daughter Halle who is 4, was
rushed to the emergency room by her father for being severely lethargic
and incoherent. He was called to her school by the school secretary for
being "very VERY sick." He told me that when he arrived that Halle was
barely sitting in the chair. She couldn't hold her own head up and when
he looked into her eyes, she couldn't focus them.

He immediately called me after he scooped her up and rushed her to the
ER. When we got there, they ran blood test after blood test and did
x-rays, every test imaginable. Her white blood cell count was normal,
nothing was out of the ordinary. The ER doctor told us that he had done
everything that he could do so he was sending her to Saint Francis for
further test.

Right when we were leaving in the ambulance, her teacher had come to the
ER and after questioning Halle's classmates, we found out that she had
licked hand sanitizer off her hand. Hand sanitizer, of all things. But
it makes sense. These days they have all kinds of different scents and
when you have a curious child, they are going to put all kinds of things
in their mouths.

When we arrived at Saint Francis, we told the ER doctor there to check
her blood alcohol level, which, yes we did get weird looks from it but
they did it. The results were her blood alcohol level was 85% and this
was 6 hours after we first took her. There's no telling what it would
have been if we would have tested it at the first ER.

Since then, her school and a few surrounding schools have taken this out
of the classrooms of all the lower grade classes but what's to stop
middle and high schoolers too? After doing research off the internet, we
have found out that it only takes 3 squirts of the stuff to be fatal in
a toddler. For her blood alcohol level to be so high was to compare
someone her size to drinking something 120 proof.

So please PLEASE don't disregard this because I don't ever want anyone
to go thru what my family and I have gone thru. Today was a little
better but not much. Please send this to everyone you know that has
children or are having children. It doesn't matter what age. I just want
people to know the dangers of this.
