Bad Mommy

Okay, I promised myself I wouldn't do this on my blog, but I have to vent my guilt somewhere. My son has been sick for the past week, first a cough, stayed home, went to school, sent home from school, stayed home, went to school... He never seemed 100% better, but it seemed like he was getting better by the end of the week. Then this weekend, he started complaining that he couldn't breathe... I told him to stop running around. Never occured to me that it could be something more serious. Just wait.

Then he started complaining that his throat was sore. He hasn't been eating much (this from a kid who eats constantly). He's been waking up at night coughing. He has a runny nose.

This morning, he still wasn't feeling great. He didn't want to get up (this from the king of the morning risers), and his throat is still sore. I looked in his throat: white tongue, maybe some white and pink spots? Not sure. My husband volunteered to stay home and take him to the pediatrician. The verdict? Strep and a "touch" of pneumonia.

Bad, bad mommy.

P.S. Forgot to mention that we probably exposed him to, hmm, at least 25 kids over the course of this weekend.... Bad, bad, bad.
