I am so sorry to hear this happened. It is so hard finding weekend care. First of all, I hope he is ok, take him back to his regular doctor if he still seems out of sorts. Did you check this
I think you are in florida, correct? If it was regular weekdays, I would go with more like a daycare situation where they keep kids of similar ages together. If nothing works, then just for this Sunday, if that babysitter has indeed promised just to have infants (and that 8 year old is no longer there)..perhaps you can hold on to her only until you find somebody else. If she has apologized profusely and you are guaranteed that there are no older kids around, then maybe it could be ok for 1 day. Good luck..hope something works out.

I had babysitter troubles in the past and it made me want to give to up and wonder why I left. But I made it though and I know u will too. It is a bump in the road, a big but a bump not a reason to give up.
