Would you stay or would you go?

My son has asthma, he was having some wheezing and coughing this week, and running a fever so I took him in to the Ped. He doesnt have an infection in his lungs, so they just prescribed him some steroids to help with the inflamation. I was planning on going out of town this weekend for a wedding, I'm not IN the wedding just a guest.

This isnt anything new (breathing treatments and steroids) he's been on them 3 or 4 times in his 2 years-- but Ifeel guilty leaving him, he would be with his Dad, and for the most part I'm sure he will give him the meds right-- sometimes he is forgetful- I dunno.. I feel guilty for bailing on the wedding, and I feel guilty for leaving him here--- WWYD??

  • How old is the son?! I would probably go, if this is a common occurance and there isnt any infection. Just call dad or text dad while your gone to remind him of the med times! If your son was ill or looked like he could take a turn for the worse i probably would stay right at home! Seems like you guys have the asthma pretty much figured out and he'll be in good hands! Not with some strange babysitter!!! have fun...KEEP your phone on!!!!
