I am not one to run my little ones to the doctor every time they cough, but we have been in the ER twice this week and I am NOT excited about getting my cat scan bill in the mail! One money and time saving tip, maybe more for those new mommies out there, is to utilize the FREE nurse on call feature, most doctors and hospitals have. All it takes is a quick call to get a quick answer that may not involve taking your child or yourself in. I'd rather stay in my cozy home if I can AND save some of those hard earned dollars.
(PS- Coincidentally, Kyler hit his head and got a virus on the same day...but showed signs of a possible concussion. Thank goodness it was nothing serious! Now to keep my strong willed child hydrated....)
