liquid hand sanitizer (had to share)
This is a parent and grandparent MUST read!!

Yesterday, my youngest daughter, Halle who is just 4 years old,
was rushed to the ER by her father for being severely lethargic
and incoherent in her classroom. He was called to her school
by the school secretary who said that she was


He told me that when he arrived at her classroom, 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 scooped her up and rushed her to the closest
ER, and then called me. When he 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.
When I arrived at the ER, the doctor there told us that he had
done everything that he could do so he was transferring her to
Saint Francis Hospital for further tests.

Right as we were leaving in the ambulance, her teacher arrived
at the ER and told us that after questioning Halle 's classmates,
She had found out that our little girl had

licked liquid hand sanitizer off of her hands !!!

Hand sanitizer, of all things. But it makes sense. These days they
have all kinds of different scents and flavors and when you have
a curious child, they are going to put all kinds of things into their mouths.

When we arrived at the Saint Francis' Hospital ER, we told the ER
Doctor there to check her blood alcohol level, and yes we did get
weird looks, but they did it.

The results showed her
blood alcohol level was 85%
-- six hours after we first took her.. There's no telling what it would have
been if we would have requested it at the first ER. Since then, her school
and a few surrounding schools have taken the liquid hand sanitizers
out of all the lower grade classes, but what's to stop middle and high
schoolers from ingesting this stuff?

After doing research on the Internet, we found out that it only takes about

3 squirts of the stuff ingested to be fatal to a toddler.

For her blood alcohol level to be so high, it would be like someone her
size drinking120 proof liquor.
So PLEASE PLEASE don't disregard this because we don't ever
want another family to go through what ours has gone through..

RE: liquid hand sanitizer (had to share)
I agree with Jayne soap and water was good enough for us when we were all growing up.

My 2nd grader's teacher makes them bring a little personal bottle to sit on their desk and I don't think that's right
