gvmom, I hadn't taken my anti-paranoia pills to-day and when I read in the Rudeness thread that some people are sensing an impending KABOOM on the board, I thought, oh my soul, I better get this rectified - word wise - in this thread. KWIM?
Oh, I have some babble, but I better put it in another thread. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Goodness Cindy--didn't mean to make you uncomfortable. After several days of not having time to come here and read this (working long hours, had to go to a donor's event for work), now I'm feeling, gosh, too terribly bad for being honest.
Not trying to make this a working mom/SAHM issue. Not trying to make any other mom uncomfy, be they working moms or SAHMs. Just trying to say that it would never ever occur to me to keep DS home an extra day--because I simply can't. I have to get back to work because I have to make sure I have those sick days for when DS or I actually need them. And I'm not exactly low joe on the totem pole where I work. And I have some flexibility because I'm not low joe. But when you manage a group of people, you need to be there, too.
And I'm betting others are in my shoes, too.

Interesting question. I have to say that it never occurred to me to keep him home longer than absolutely necessary. If he has a fever or has vomited in the past 24 hours, I keep him home. If his functioning is impaired to the point where he would be miserable at school, I keep him home (that hasn't occurred to date). If he has symptoms that would cause the school to ask me to pick him up, I keep him home. Otherwise, even if he has a cold, I send him to school. I don't want him to miss any more than absolutely necessary, and neither does he. DH and I take turns staying home with him if he's sick enough that we don't want him to be at his grandparents' with his sister (they provide childcare for us), so having a place for him to go isn't an issue.

Another question about this glass half empty/half full thing....I can see that after having a cold you would be worried about your child being more susceptible(sp?) to having a reaction. That makes sense to me.
My question: How about getting a cold after a mild reaction? Are your chances of this also increased? I've noticed for the last 3 mild contact reactions that dd has had, she had cold symptoms a day or two later.
Is this just a coincidence?
Or could it be because part of the reaction involved sneezing, runny nose. The nose gets stuffy, and that makes it easy to get an infection?
I'm just curious. Wondering if anyone else noticed this in their children or with themselves.
