Okay honestly this whole swine flu thing is getting a little out of hand. No doubt it's horrible and miserable to have. I certainly don't want myself or my kids to come down with it. But my OB's office just called to remind me about my weekly appointment tomorrow, and informed me that I'm not allowed to bring any of my (already-born) kids to the office. That hopefully that doesn't inconvenience me, but they're just trying to "protect everyone." (AKA themselves. Because I'm pretty sure it's MY job to protect my own kids.)
First of all, I don't bring my kids in, Kevin comes home to watch them. So this is a non-issue. BUT, I'm paying this doctor a heck of a lot of money, and if I want to bring my children with me to hear the baby's heartbeat or because my husband has to work, I ought to be able to. OR the doctor's office needs to be up front about this policy from the get-go. Give me a break.
Just an anecdote from my day. :) Here's hoping we all remain swine flu free, but here's also hoping we remain mass hysteria free. In the words of George Costanza, WE'RE TRYING TO HAVE A SOCIETY HERE, PEOPLE!!! :)
