Hi mamas, how do you handle a sick child when you cannot take the days off? My son is 18 months, just started daycare and he’s been sick a lot. I just changed job, so I don’t have enough PTO to take, but I’m able to WFH. Husband cannot work from home or take time off since he has a big deadline at work right now. How do you handle a sick child but also get the work done? We don’t have any families live close by neither.

I now understand why people don’t trust for profit medical institutions. For the last few years my doctor has ordered the same biopsies and tests for me. This year she ordered an invasive surgery. I got my medical records and had my friend who is a nurse read the documents, & she didn’t understand why some of the tests were performed or why the surgery was recommended when 1) the tests came back low risk 2) she said it’s abnormal to do that procedure, they usually go a way less invasive route.

I am in a single income family with a small army of children. We have enough medical bills from chronic meds and random happenings that we just do the plans that have the smallest deductible(out of pocket) due to risk of large medical bills.
