Up to this point in his life, Jamie has been surrounded by people who already know (through my constant nagging....erm, "reminding") that he has some life-threatening health concerns - namely, his food allergy to peanuts and his asthma. This has meant that, although I know it is important, I haven't gotten around to buying him a medical alert bracelet or anything else that identifies emergency personnel to the fact that he has health issues.
Quite frankly, this is extremely stupid of me, I know. I also know that most USB medical bracelets are either too big, or too expensive. (Except, today I found one for less than $20 on Walgreens (dot) com. I'll be going there shortly to order it!) But I don't think just the medic alert bracelet is enough. I want something else to help alert emergency personnel that they should be looking for a medical bracelet and that they should look for his life-saving medications on him. But something like that was non-existent, at least, specific to what I wanted and what I wanted it to say. Until now. Today, I found on Etsy some professional looking patches and buttons, for less than $5, that say "I have asthma, inhaler inside" and "Fatal allergy to peanuts, EpiPen inside". These would be PERFECT to put on his little EpiPen bag/Inhaler holder he carries everywhere he goes. They're big, bright, noticeable, and have the medical alert symbol on them.
Only one problem. Every time I go to order the dang things, Etsy's server crashes and I can't get back on. Finally, I get back on, and then it crashes again. Oh, Etsy, the first time I've tried to use you, for something as important as this, and YOU. LET. ME. DOWN!
