My niece was sent home from school yesterday throwing up with a fever. My SIL called me this morning asking if I could watch her, supposedly she's better but still running a fever so can't go to school. I told her no politely and she just flew off the wall. So I reminded her I have a 6 week old baby and a 4 year old in his third week of chemo, voluntarily bringing a sick child in my house is not the best thing. She hung up on me and is now ranting on FB about how family should help each other out and how she's probably going to be fired. (She's already missed 4 days of work this year). This from the woman that could not pick up our oldest child at the same school she was picking up her own child and take him to the same place she was dropping off her own child the day of my 4 year old's surgery.

I'm with you on this one. No way would I allow a sick child In the vicinity of another child undergoing chemo and who likely has no immune system. She can get over it.

Oh well. How fricken self absorbed can she possibly be??? Sorry, but not sorry I really wouldn't care if she got fired. She should take other people into consideration, especially in your case.

That's why parents have to have at least 3 backup plans. I think I've only missed work once for a sick kid.

I'm petty Betty. If she's ranting on fb check her and make her look like a fool. I would have said no too. She's an inconsiderate asshole for even asking

Regardless of history, what kind of dumb-ass suggests a sick child hang out with a child going through chemo?

You did the right thing. In your circumstances it's obviously best not to compromise the well being of your children. I just can't believe that she would act like that! Sounds like it's time to distance yourself from her

Agreed.  Plus an infant.  I think she's nuts for even asking.

Quoting MolsRN: I'm with you on this one. No way would I allow a sick child In the vicinity of another child undergoing chemo and who likely has no immune system. She can get over it.
