    I tell my kids not to bother me unless it's a LOT of blood, you can see the bone OR somebody isn't breathing.

    Single mother + special needs kid. Sometimes, I had to decide whether to be the nurse or the mother. Since I was the only person who could be the mom, I often chose mom. I did put on my 'nurse' when dealing w/docs, etc., but I tried to focus on him when he needed me.

    Aren't any if you the opposite? Every ache might be an osteosarcoma? back pain some spinal abcess? I see more pts who ignored tiny stuff and it was actually the start of something huge than the opposite

    Were I a parent I would probably be a little like this... especially working in pediatric oncology where I've seen things as simple as a limp really be leukemia.

    Last night my son "popped" his knee at football. I came home, looked at it, ROM on it ( some pain), swelling. So we medicated, rested. This morning I was debating whether to take him or not... We ended up going when I noticed how much of an issue he was having... Sprained knee ( which was what I thought), most likely the MCL.

    I'm actually the opposite. I am sometimes paranoid and worry too much that it's leukemia, food allergy etc. Or just I know they could use some antibiotics so I bring them when I know they need them... not on death's door, no, but just aware they need antibiotics.

    Yeah that is what I said, unfortunately for my 12 yr old daughter, kept complaining her hip hurt, I ignored her and told her to stop whining and continue running, she was in track and field.I made her run on a broken "chipped" hip for 3 weeks. We ended up in PT for the summer. Who would of thought a healthy teenager with no history of trauma would have a broken hip?
