You never really realise until........

You never really realise until you experience something how hard things can be for certain people.

My Daughter has a Type 1 Latex Allergy, which basically means that her allergy is bad enough that it could cause death if a reaction is not treated quick enough.

As I mentioned here Riley has to go under a General Anasthethic for a Dental Procedure, and because a large part of operating theatres contain Latex, finding a hospital that will accommodate her has been a challenge. The Sunshine Day Hospital refused to accommodate her, and finally the Sunbury Private Hospital said they would do it.

The health system is going to have to realise that the occurrence of this allergy is escalating and they will have to accommodate it.
