So, our family Christmas is being held at DH's cousin's house. Cousin has triplets a week younger than our DD. One was just diagnosed with RSV tonight.
I have no experience with this illness and do not know much at all except what I just read on Medicinenet.com. It says the incubation period is 2-8 days and the catagious period is 3-8 days.
Anyways, Christmas shindig is in two more weekends. Would you go and bring LO? Like I said, I don't know much about this illness except for what I just read and I'm wondering if I should be concerned about the possibility of one or both of the other triplets getting it and during that 'incubation period' prior to being dx'd they would be contagious and DD would be exposed to it.
Am I overreacting? What is your experience with this infection? What is the return-to-daycare rule with this illness? DD seems to hang on to sicknesses so DH thinks it's best not to even chance it, which I agree that I wouldn't chance DD's health knowing that it's a big risk. I'm just not knowledgable about this so I don't know if we are making the right decision.
Ultimately, what would you do? Stay home or go? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
