On My Way To Work

I almost made it to work this morning.

Let me explain. DS1 has been sick since Thursday evening. Yesterday, he was fever-free but I decided to take him to the doctor just to make sure everything was in check. The nurse took a throat culture and it was negative. So, we spent the day together and I dropped him off at daycare this morning, along with DS2. About 35 minutes into my commute I received a call from the doctor’s office saying that DS1’s overnight culture came back positive and he needs to be on antibiotics for 24 hours before returning to daycare.

So, I turned around and went to pick him up. What choice did I have?  (Side note- I was totally embarrassed to have to pick him up because when I dropped him off I gave the teacher a whole explanation about how the doctor said he could return to daycare.) Anyway, back to the story. As I was walking into the daycare I saw DS2’s teacher (sarcastic yay…) Apparently, DS2 came down with thrush and needed to be taken to the doctor. So, I got DS1, made an appointment for DS2 and we were all off the the doctor (again).

From the doctor, we went straight to the pharmacy. By 10:30am everyone was on anti-biotics and I still had to sign into work, as I told my boss I would, since it’s the 4th business day and pretty busy.

As you can imagine, I couldn’t get much work done with both kids home, but I did manage to send out an important file and dial into a conference call. Not bad if you ask me.  Got way more done than I thought I would, but the absolute worst part of it all was that I was all dressed for work and didn’t even go!

Until next time,
Shaindy
