I want to thank Securus Technologies for being in place to help my niece. Had it not been for Securus Technologies, my niece might have passed away. I have raised my niece just like she was my own child since her mom passed away. My niece was diagnosed with an allergic reaction to peanut butter since she was a child. I am assuming that when she got locked up, she wasn’t in the frame of mind to tell the authorities of this very important fact.When an episode comes upon her for eating peanut butter in any form, it can be very rough on her body. Because I raised her, I know the symptoms quite well. They range from wheezing, to her tongues swelling, to her breaking out in hives all over her body. And it takes a few days sometimes for all the symptoms to subside.
She was talking on the phone with a friend and started having symptoms of wheezing. She later in that same conversation noted that she felt her tongue was swelling a little bit. But she thought she had it all under control. Then she started to feel a little light-headed and got off the phone to go lay down.I would have known the symptoms right away. That person on the other end of the call wasn’t aware she was having the beginning stages of an allergic reaction. She could have chocked and died in her sleep in her cell. She was able to get medical attention before she went into a full blown allergic reaction. It was actually caught by Securus Technologies. I am so grateful. Thank you.
