Dilemma...edit...Update

OK so here is my dilemma.

I am supposed to throw my friend a baby shower today but my son has a constant cough. I am going to take him to the ER in a couple minutes since his Dr office is closed for the weekend. So here is my question...If it is just caused by his allergies or isn't something serious is it bat for me to still do the baby shower? While I am doing the shower he will be with my father.

If it is something more serious I will call neighbor to do the shower for me...she has my keys & knows where everything is.

EDIT.... EDIT...... EDIT........ EDIT

He has an immune disorder (his body can't fight off illness), a heart defect, & sever persistent asthma. He has stopped breathing a couple times & his heart has stopped once. I REALLY worry when he is at all sick.

UPDATE

My son is doing fine...on LOTS of meds but I was still able to do the baby shower. My dad ended up staying at my home with my son so they wouldn't be an hour away at his home if something went wrong. With his medicine he slept most of the time I was gone.

 Why do you think it would be bad to do the shower if it isn't serious? If your father is willing to watch him then do the baby shower.

With the edit that makes it a bit tougher. I think it would depend on how easily reached I was and how much I trusted my dad to care for him while sick. Good luck! Keep us updated on how he is?

If its not serious then I think it should be okay to go ahead with the shower.

We had a really good time. Everyone loved the food & games. She got a lot of really cute girl things.

I have a son so it was so much fun buying baby girl things
