    NO you're NOT. I would do the very same thing. Flu is nasty especially for a little baby

  • Play dirty. Ask them if coming to visit you would make it possible they'd bring home a virus that might kill their grandfather, would they visit.

  • I don't think you're wrong. I can somewhat understand that they might feel hurt, but they should understand that this is not about just getting this flu - this is about the effect that getting the flu could have on a baby and a man whose immune system is compromised.

    Stick to your guns and don't risk getting the baby and your grandfather ill when they don't need to be. You can always go celebrate Christmas with them after everyone is healthy again.

  • Nope, stay home this Christmas. It's best for all. If they don't like it, they will get over it. LOL! Been there, done that.
