Danny got his in December or January. He was around 30 pounds. I think it is a judgment call for the doctors. If the benefits outweigh the risks they will still give it. If a 19 pound child could have to stay overnight for a racing heart rate and possible other complications from the Epi that is better than having a 19 pound child that is purple becuase her throat closed from a reaction 15 minutes ago... KWIM? Life-threatening reactions to meds are acceptable when they are treating more life-threatening problems...
