Last weekend, we went to visit some friends at their cabin for the day. Their toddler had a cold. Not sure exactly what he had but his nose was running and it was not clear. Now, if we would have known about this we would have canceled and gone another day. Lo and behold, our son got sick. Being Diabetic he takes a real beating when he gets a virus. My husband did mention something to them but they brushed it off as it being some other virus. I don’t think so.
This couple knows very well that our son is prone to colds especially since SHE is a nurse. Of all people, she should know that our son shouldn’t have been around their sick child. I know sometimes a person can’t prevent viruses from being passed but this time they knew their child was sick and still allowed us to come out. What really bugs me is that they are not afraid to say anything when it comes to their children. For example, when their kids were babies they made us wash our hands 50 times among all the other crazy anal things they say or do.
Christopher got so sick and I ended up taking him to the doctor. Every time he gets sick I wonder if this time he will end up in the hospital due to severe keytones.
To say the least, the next time we get together with this couple I will be making sure that their kids are not sick with anything. I’m also going to tactfully make it clear that colds or the flu are very rough on our son.
Has this ever happened to you?
