My younger boy is sick. He's been sick for 3 days. He had pneumonia when he was 6 months old. This illness is wicked. Has a nasty fever, deep wracking cough and has settled in.
I say, "its only been 3 days and the tylenol is knocking the fever out, nyquil at night gets rid of the cough, there is no reason to go to the emergency room."
He says "its been 3 days and it takes nyquil to get rid of the cough and he had pneumonia as a baby and the fever keeps coming back, we should take him to the emergency room."
I think hubby is nuts. I think this can wait to see his regular pediatrician tomorrow or whenever. I'm willing to bet his ped. won't see him unless I demand an emergency visit.
Take him to ER or just wait?
