Here's the run down. Kiddo went to the doctor this morning and has an ear infection and was given amoxicillin.

This evening he was running a fever of 101.9

I have my well woman exam tomorrow and I can't reschedule, first of all it's too late and I'd have to pay a 50 dollar fee but it also took me months to get an appointment.

So take him to school tomorrow or take him with me? There is no alternative childcare and he's 3

You shouldn't take him to school with a fever.

the fever is from the ear infection and he's on antibiotics, still not ok? At this point he's not contagious the fever is from the ear infection.

Can't you take him with you? I always took my kids with me before they were in school. Have him sit in the chair up by your head. Explain they are making sure you are healthy. Doesn't your kids doc check his privates?

Prob gonna have to take him w/you. Even if its just an ear infection, its the fever that will prevent him from going to school. Either that or forefit the $50 & try to reschedule- explain and they might get you in sooner! GL Momma!

You're a real piece of work. You really have to ask on a message board what you already KNOW is best for your child? Jeezus
