Re: My MIL gave my son aspirin!

This is why I didnt send any meds with him, he had just had a dosage of tylenol and I thought it would stave off the fever until I got home. I think she was trying to do the right thing, just didnt execute very well.

While peds don't recommend aspirin generally anymore, some kids (like mine) still have to take it. So, I think you'll be fine if it was only one aspirin.
That must have been traumatic! Thanks for sharing though, yeah he hasnt shown any signs so far of reyes so I think we should be good.
