bad patient

4:00 pm – Sarah enters the house, vomits and goes to bed. Her temperature is 101.

“I stayed up too late last night. I’ll be fine after a quick nap. I have to go to a football game tomorrow night.”

10:00 pm – After a six hour nap, Sarah’s temperature is 102.

“I think I just ate too much Halloween candy this week. I’ll be fine for the football game.”

I told Sarah that I have never heard of anyone running a fever from eating too much candy. Doug and I took turns trying to explain that she needs to be fever free for 24 hours before she is going anywhere.

“I won’t breathe on anyone at the game. It’ll be okay.”
