Of course I'm worried, C rarely gets sick and usually bounces back no sweat. We also can't figure out how or why he's sick, no one else is... yet. Maybe he picked it up at the dentist or school, who knows.
For me family is my world, I would do anything in my power for my kids and hubby. If that mean I have to "waste" my vacation days nursing my sick seven year old son so be it. I'd rather be home getting puked on by someone I love, than sitting at a sewing machine with a bunch of witches any day.
Am I going to get the cold shoulder when I go to work? Yes.
Am I going to have to deal with the fall out of someone messing with my machine? Yes.
Am I going to have a ton of backed up work to deal with? Yes.
Am I going to regret it? Hell No.
As long as my babies are healthy and happy I don't care what anybody thinks.
