We live with my husband's parents, and I'm just about to have a baby. FIL developed a cough recently, and got the news today that he has strep throat and bronchitis. He's on antibiotics, as of today. I'm scared, and sad. I don't even know if I should go back to the house in the morning. We're going away for the weekend, staying with my ex-husband, so I'll at least have that long in a healthy environment. But what about after that? Can I risk being around him when he's in that condition? I know I can't risk having the baby around him. So when she comes, I pretty much have to go stay somewhere else for a while, right? Unfortunately, my only option is to go back up to stay with my ex (three hours away) and leave my husband behind, because he has to go to work. So he's going to miss the first weeks of his child's life because of this.
I'm not even sure what I'm asking. Just looking for advice, or maybe just some sympathy. I'm heartbroken.
