One thing since I haven't seen or heard anything other than that article, she kissed him over the weekend, and then died on Wednesday? Was she in the hospital several days, or did she just not go to the hospital for some reason?
Peanut allergies are almost always severe. Afflicted individuals are most likely toting around an Epi-pen (epinepherine shot) to shove in their leg if they feel something. That was likely the adrenaline shiot they were referring to. It's certainly no guarantee though and its nothing like that elephant syringe in Pulp Fiction.
What I'm getting at is that there were no symptoms or anything for 3 days? Then just boom! Dead!?
It's not clear from the article, but allergic reactions should be pretty immediate and it sounds like they just couldn't save her after 3 days.
Exactly. I was expecting an immediate allergic reaction, which is the norm.
Shame the article doesn't explain this situation in more depth.
Looks like it was immediate. This update should clear up all the questions:
Sounds like she got the shot immediately, but still died 3 days later. A real shame.
