hi, i have a sick little boy, so I don't have time to do a search about this. I'm wondering if any of you have experience with Tamiflu, if it has worked well for your family, if there are any concerns we should know about before we give it to our soon to be 1 year old son? He's just come down with a fever today, and my husband is just getting over the flu. TIA!
my friends daughter was recently in the hospital with pneumonia, and what does our other friend bring for her to help her feel better? A happy meal! The poor thing was too sick to eat any of it.

that would totally freak me out too. I really can't think of any good reason to carry around a paddle at church either. Very bizarre. I would probably try to find that woman next Sunday and ask her what her paddle is for. Maybe she has a good reason, even though it's hard to imagine one.
that's total BS! I really wonder if there's a need for doctors at all sometimes. ER docs, I can validate...pediatricians, not so much. There just seems to be way too much BS you have to sift through before you get any useful information.
you are not alone with your thoughts at all. I could have easily written your post myself.

At 17 months, your task has shifted from keeping him from crying ever to...

Any chance of an in-home daycare where both of your stress could be lessened? You might also check with Co-abode about house sharing with another single mama to share childcare. Perhaps, you all take turns working and sharing child care, instead of...

I felt sick to my stomach but I had no idea if I should do anything. I just gave DS a big hug and turned him away so he couldn't see. What would you...
