Thank you momofthree. Everyday she starts the morning off with her preventative inhaler. If we are going outside we give her Zyrtec. We do not purchase any food that has or that is processed in a facility that has ingredients she’s allergic to. We never leave the house without her 2 epi pens and rescue inhaler.

I am appalled at the current movie controversy and am shocked that no one anticipated the resulting (and well-deserved) furor. So Sony has issued their apology.
