And regards to the kids and
being outside in just a diaper: It's true - Bethany Phippen -
Doctors do order a parent to take their child outside if they
are running a high fever. In fact - November 2009 - just last
year - the paramedics were at my sister's house because my nephew,
who was 18 months old at the time, stopped breathing and was
running an EXTREMLY HIGH fever. Upon arriving there, the paramedics
immediatly stripped ALL of his clothes off - including his diaper
- and took him directly outside for a good 5-10 minutes to try
and cool him off. He was then transported to KGH for further
treatment. Before leaving to go back home, the doctors at the
Emergency Room told my sister that if he continued to run a high
fever, to take him outside to try and cool him off. So it's true
- I was there!
