I am a stay home mom who is single and I take care of my one son is 3 yrs old. He has a low immune system that in it self is a job to take extra care of him and our home so he don't get sick again. He has been to the hospital stay over to many times since he was 1yr. He keeps getting diseases in this world. I nor the doctors can tell me why. Besides taking of his health he's a handful trying to teach him to be a good boy and teaching him school at home. I know that if I put him in school he would get extremely sick. How about your life with your kids how busy are you? Please don't respond to this if you don't have any kids you take care of!

I agree that it is a 24/7 job to take care of kids. Even more so when they have health problems. My 10 year old son is autistic and my 7 year old son has Celiac Disease. My 7 year old was also hospitalized for 5 days when he was only 2 months old because of a severe bladder infection that almost killed him. Fortunately he made it and his infection cleared up a few years ago. So anyone that says taking care of kids isn't a 24/7 job, must not be a parent (or they are a parent that has others take care of their kids). :P

thanks for sharing your family story. My son gets sick alot. Also he gets diesease's so easily. when he was 1 1/2 he got blood diease MRSA. I still don't know how he got it. I have heard different reasons how you can get it. earlier this month he got Pable Purpura diesease. which that on is a german diease and scared me because if though its been around since the early 1900's docters today still don't know what to do for it. they say theres no cure. but usually it goes away within 4 to 6 weeks. Thankful my son is cured since Monday of this week. but the docter has to monitor is blood every month for a year now to see if he gets it again. because it is not unlikely he could get it again.

I don't have a kid yet but we are planning to have next year. I am planning to be a home base worker mommy too. I want to be with my child every minute to monitor her/his progress. I hope and pray that your son will be find. Just keep on praying and please do give him a lot of vegetables and fresh fruit to eat to increase his immune system. I think that is the best advice I can give. Happy posting.

thanks for answering. I try to give him veg's. Thats a hard one since all he likes is cooked soft carrots. you know the frozen carrots you find at the store. I want to make the salad that is carrots and raisins but I am not sure if he'll like it. fruits he loves those. He really loves apples, banana's and pineapple.
