We all love a beautiful summer day full of warmth and sunshine. Enjoying a meal on the patio, hot dogs on the grill, s’mores over a campfire it doesn’t get much better.
Unfortunately, time spent outdoors in the summer does comes with it’s downside and 3-year-old Kristoffer Nordgarden painfully experienced one of them.
Summertime means no shoes, which increases your risk of !njuries by acc!dentally stepping on a sharp object or a bee or even worse….a snake.
When 3-year-old Kristoffer ran to his mother Elisabeth Nordgarden crying one day, she initially didn’t think it was too serious.
“ME AND THE BOYS WERE VISITING MY GRANDPARENTS. KRISTOFFER BEGAN TO CRY A LITTLE AND CLIMBED ONTO MY LAP. WE THOUGHT HE HAD BEEN STUNG BY A WASP OR SCRATCHED HIMSELF ON A BRANCH.”
Elisabeth Nordgarden would have never thought that this would be the most terr!fying weekend of her life.
A short 15 minutes after he started crying, Kristoffer’s foot began to swell and turn blue.
Elisabeth called the 911 the ambulance and helicopter arrived almost instantly. They repeatedly said this is a snake bite…Elisabeth had no idea.
Kristoffer received an anti-dote when he arrived and began to show signs of improvement. His vital signs quickly began to get worse… then even worse.Now, after 9 years, Emily and Jamie are perfectly healthy children. Doctors feared that what happened at birth could affect Jamie’s life, but they were wrong again.Bigi lives at an elite Calabasa, California neighborhood and attends Buckley School, a private school in Sherman Oaks, California.
