Children and Doctors where does it end?

My life:

Tuesday: child is up with diarrhea all night long sleeps in doorway to make it to bathroom.

Wednesday: child is on couch all day and makes frequent trips to the bathroom and up the whole night again

Thursday: child seems better until time for Softball and then starts all over again but manages to get through night

Friday: Child pukes. Call the Doctor and get an appointment for that day. Now child is bouncing off walls and having a good time with sister!? What I made two phone calls to get her in to see the doctor. Now she seems fine??

So now what cancel appointment and she feels bad later and cant get a Saturday appointment (if I do this my husband makes me feel like a bad parent)

Or

Go and feel like an idiot because there is nothing wrong with my child?

Ok I felt like a huge idiot and she was perfectly ok after she puked and hasn't had a single symptom since.

Always happens every time I decide I need to take my kids to the Doctor.

Had to get this rant out of my system. My kids drive me crazy when they are sick!

Would rather take the appt Friday than possibly have a miserable kid all weekend. Besides, you are definitely the first parent to have gone and the kids be fine and you won't be the last. I've had it happen plenty of times!

That happens to me ALL the time - plus the kids always get sick Fri. afternoon...so I have to decide, should I call & try to get them in that afternoon or early the next AM for sick kid hours (then it will be nothing or they'll be fine by the time we get there) or should I just wait & have them be sick all weekend? Argh!

It happens to parents all the time. My oldest has asthma so Iam there all the time and it seems like he is better (when he has a cold) by the time we r there but I always go and see what is wrong, rather be safe than sorry.

I am not sure about the 18 HH...my Jerry is going on 20 and I still take it upon myself to make his doctor's appointments...or he would never go.

My oldest DS is 23, and he also never goes to the doctor/dentist unless we #1 beg him, and #2 pay for it! The only exception to this rule was when he went to the ER after seriously injuring himself in a fall off his bike. So, I guess it goes on forever!

Darn, I was hoping for an end, too...I have four preschoolers behind DS! We have two asthmatics and go to the doctor so much the receptionist knows me by my voice. Friday afternoons are our specialty as well.

Same thing happens to me constantly.... And it wears me slick!

My daughter's (6yr) eyeball was swollen the other day. Freaked me out. Never seen anything like it in my life... By the time I drove her 30 miles to the doctor the swelling had went down and they told me it was allergies???? My brothers and I have had allergies our whole lives. Anybody ever seen this before??? Her eyeball was swelled out enough to make her face look deformed????
