It's in the Mom Book that you are not expected to diagnose pneumonia. See Chapter 6, p. 4. So cut yourself some slack.

In all seriousness, my coworker's daughter went a week with a 104 temp before they diagnosed her pneumonia. She had her at the doctor three times. It happens. Nothing you can do about it.

Headless Mom

Asthma is like that. Don't beat yourself up. I would have done the same thing.


Worst Mom Ever award goes to my mom. When I was living with her in NYC for a summer, sleeping under a window AC unit that spewed out God-knows-what, she FINALLY took me to the ER to find out I had pneumonia. And then we WALKED home....to save the cab fare.

True story. But she wasn't the worst mom ever. She was my beloved Best Mom. And I'm sure you are, too. :-)


Yup, been there!The viral infection that brought along the bacterial infection to keep it company.... Now hubbing is sick cuz everyone else is well now. And dude is a serious grump when he is not well. It will get better.


Yuck! on the sick. I hope everyone has healed up.
