Would you be mad? Re: Viral pneumonia

My sister and her kids came over this weekend while they had the contagious kind of pneumonia, in various stages. They knew about it, but told us that it was just a cold.

Well I'm cafemoming from the hospital now, my 11 month old and 7 year old have it.

How mad would you be?

  • On the one hand, If your sister knew her kids had viral pneumonia and she basically lied to you that it was just a cold, yes, I'd be very angry that she would be that inconsiderate of you all.

    On the other hand, if she honestly thought her kids really did only have colds, then I'd still be upset that her kids got my kids sick, but since she didn't know how bad it was, I'd be more inclined to let it slide and more careful next time.

    However, on the third hand, if my sister showed up & I saw that they were sick, I wouldn't have let them in my house & would've asked to reschedule the visit for a time when everybody was well.
