I'm putting this here instead of in health, because it has to do with kids and a party.
My niece was in the E.R. last night with croup. We have a family party tomorrow so I asked my SIL what was going on with it. She said that my niece was acting better and her fever broke, so she's still planning on bringing her to the party, which is tomorrow. If she was just in the E.R. last night - wouldn't she still be contagious tomorrow?
I ask because I was planning on bringing my 4.5 mth old and 2yr old son to the party with my DH. Now I don't think I want to go, as I do not want them to get croup, especially my younger one.
Also, my SIL said, if my niece didn't go, her DH and other two kids (6 & 1) were still planning on going. Couldn't they be carrying the virus, or already have it even if they aren't showing symptoms yet? And possibly give it to my kids even though my niece isn't at the party?
I don't want to stop my SIL and kids from going to the party if they want to, but I just want to make sure if we do go, we wont' get sick.
