When was the last time you called in sick to work?

Were you sick or a child?

In Sweden you are not allowed to go into work

No sick days for me. I know that DH has called off work to stay home for me before. I think it was when I had tendinitis in my shoulder and needed to rest it. He usually works from home though, so I'm not entirely without responsibility. Luckily, I haven't been really sick - other than morning sickness - since I had the kids. And when they are sick, I'm just working overtime:)

The only thing that really puts me out of commission is a full blown migraine. Thankfully I can usually catch them in time with my meds though.

I had to leave work twice last week for sick kids. Each one took a turn with a 24 hour tummy bug.

In America you get sent home with a fever too and must have the fever gone for 24 hours too.

Since DH is laid off each winter, I usually get lucky and if the kids get sick, I don't have to stay home.

I had the flu in February and missed almost a week of school. It was not a good situation. I was pretty sick. Then my kids each took a turn at it so I missed more school.

This year, we got our flu shots early. Both boys were sick for a couple of days after the shot, so they missed school.
