So DH and I have been planning to go to his sister's for Thanksgiving. She lives about 45 minutes away. They have four kids (including a 3-week old baby girl). Her husband's sister's family (including another four kids) will also be attending. My mother in law is planning to drive down for the holiday, as well.
I went to work today feeling okay but a couple hours ago, I started feeling really, really crummy. Just achey and tired, sore throat, coughing, and I'm pretty sure I'm running a fever. The work day is almost over, which is good, but I'm worried about trying to attend tomorrow. There are going to be so many people and I'm really worried about getting the baby sick, especially.
I talked to DH and he said he would understand if I had to stay home. I told him I wanted him to go, anyway, and be with the family for the day. My question is: can I stay home tomorrow or should I feel really bad about missing the day with my in-laws? If I was going to see my family, I might go even if I was sick BUT they don't have any small children for me to worry about. I know my husband isn't going to be upset and he says my mother-in-law won't be upset but I'm so worried about offending her. She's very sensitive.
