See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Update: So we left the ER last night after seeing that people who had been there for 2 hours hadn't even had their vitals taken last night, gave him a second breathing treatment, and I stayed up all night to make sure his breathing was okay (he was slightly cyanotic before the first treatment). He was running around and acting all jolly at the doctor's office this morning, so the doctor was a little surprised I had taken him into the ER... until... she examined him. Poor kid has a massive double ear infection with a left ruptured ear drum, strep throat with massive tonsils, and walking pneumonia. She said, "Wow! You weren't kidding! He doesn't even look sick at first glance." (when I brought my oldest in I told her my youngest never even appears sick, so we have to watch him really carefully when he gets sick.) I said, "I know." She said, "I wonder how sick he'd have to be to look sick if he is THIS bad while still being perky." I answered, "I hope I never have to find out, because that would scare the hell out of me." So now, I'm delerious with no sleep, breathing treatments every three hours until further notice, steroids starting tonight for the pneumonia, antibiotics twice a day. Thankfully hubby gets off at 5 at which point, I will check out for at least 2 hours for a nap! >_<
I missed three days of work and my son missed three days of school due to him possibly having mono... I was so tired after staying up with him all night that even though I work from home, I was no good to them. Tonight is only my second night back at working since my missing work (I work pretty much every night and occasionally take an evening off - I work 2-3 hours a night). My youngest just woke up with the SAME EXACT SYMPTOMS :-[ poor baby... but tomorrow, I get to take him to the doctor... I will also be up all night with him, likely... and I'm only half done with work for the night despite being interrupted 5x so far... so this 2-3 hours of work is looking more like 5 or 6... shit...
