I’m not sure if this is the best place to post this, but I’d love some advice. We’re supposed to go to our nephew’s bday party tomorrow but my SIL texted me this morning that he has croup. She’s not canceling/rescheduling his party; just giving people a heads up.
We have a 3-year-old daughter, and I’m 15 weeks pregnant. Our daughter has never had croup, but I’m under the impression it’s pretty contagious and can in some cases be somewhat serious? I have a FB acquaintance whose son recently visited the ER because of it (I think he was fine in the end, but certainly scary for everyone).
I don’t really know what to do. I don’t want my daughter (or us) to get sick, but I feel bad if we decide not to go to his party. He didn’t get to have a party last year because of COVID. Plus, my SIL made a big deal about his party recently because he’s been struggling with sharing attention with his little sister. We all went to his sister’s 1st bday party last month and he had a really hard time with her being the center of attention.
A really big part of me wishes my SIL would just reschedule the party for another weekend. I get that she put a lot of effort into planning it and possibly already has food and cake ready to go for tomorrow. I texted my other SIL to see what they were planning to do, but I haven’t heard from her.
Am I overreacting/is croup really not that big of a deal? What would you do if you were in my shoes? Thanks in advance for any advice or insight
