When we get sick, normally we just try our best to not infect anyone, or call out of work and stay home to get our work done. While it may be sometimes difficult for us to step back to heal and return to 100%, it's for the best. But what about when someone else in the family gets sick?

Yes, there is always that situation that someone else in the family feels under the weather. When that other person sick is a little one, it gets a little tougher. Taking care of a child is herculean effort, mainly because of the worry about how sick they are.

When we take children to the doctor, we all hope for excellent care. But many factors play into how the child is taken care of. Having insurance being one of them.
