Did I do the right thing?

My 7 month old has been sick with the stomach flu for over a week. Yesterday he threw up again and then this morning he got really bad diarreah and then screamed his head off because he had gas pains (mylicon took care of that). He's fine now rolling around on the floor playing. Anyway I called him off of day care AGAIN just to be safe but now my husband is mad. It's his birthday and we were going to go to lunch together but now we have to stay home and take our son back to the doctor. I understand his frustration especially because he's pretty much been the one home with him all this week and all last week but I just did what I feel was right. Should I have taken him to day care since he feels better now? Or did I do the right thing? What would you have done?

  • YOU DID THE RIGHT THING, YOUR SON COMES FIRST IN ANY SCENARIO. HUBBY WILL HAVE TO STOP POUTING AND REALIZE PRIORITIES.

  • Your husband needs to understand that your son comes first and he may be feeling better but that doesn't mean he's fully recovered yet. I think you did the right thing and tell your husband to quit being a baby for petes sake.

  • You did the right thing... Tell him if you send them back too soon they'll get the other kids sick and then guess what... you all get to go thru it again...
    Am glad he's feeling better, hope he makes a full recovery with no repeats anytime soon :)

  • tell him to get over himself, you are suppose to put your son first, where is his priorty's? it's not like you can't make it up to his selfish-ass.

  • As long as he was still showing symptoms of being sick (like diarrhea and vomiting) then YES you did the best thing for both your child and the daycare.

    Tell hubby to grow up. Being a parent sometimes means putting adult plans on hold for the sake of the kids.
