My Child is Home Sick – Do I Take Him to The Doctor?
This is first time this has ever happened to me while at home without the wife. At about 9:15 this morning the phone rings, I see it says, "City of Auburn" on the caller ID and I pick up thinking one of my boys forgot something at school but no it was the Auburn Middle School nurse telling me that Justin has a fever with a headache and sore throat.
So I tell the nurse I'll be there to pick up and dismiss him as sick for the rest of the day. I get Vikki dressed and head to the school, get Justin and come home.
We're taking the "wait and see" approach when it comes to the Doctor. If it gets worse, I'll take him but so far Justin seems alright watching Disney Jr. with Vikki on the couch.
The fever is 99.2, low grade in my opinion, but what is the threshold before taking him in?
