Infections with just runny nose and minimal or no fever can certainly be observed by the parents. However, illnesses with significant fever, or overall distress and those that are not improving after 5 days or so should usually be seen or discussed with the child's doctor. Cultures of the blood, urine and throat and blood count and a urine analysis can help in determining whether antibiotic treatment is necessary. It's important to limit antibiotic use only to bacterial infections. Inappropriate or over-use of antibiotics can contribute to the development of bacteria that become resistant so that they are not easily treatable. [ Reply | More ]

That's because weather forecasters are notorious Commies and of course, they are trying to help their Communist friend de Blasio. Funny how OP isn't blaming Cuomo, her favorite, favorite politician! How come Cuomo gets a pass, OP? lol! caught ya! [ Reply | More ]

Total prediction is 12-16 for NYC. That is a major storm. I do not like DeB, but he did the right thing, get the subway trains into the sheds so they don't get wrecked or stuck. [ Reply | More ]

Over 10-11 inches, the tracks become unpasseable for the trains. Better to get them off the tracks early. [ Reply | More ]

Yup. No biggie, though. That's what government is for. People left work early, they stayed safe in case it was a major storm. Turned out not so bad, people get up and just go to work tomorrow. What's the problem? (And I'm not a DeB fan at all, politically). [ Reply | More ]

Because OP is just interested in garnering anger for de Blasio. I'm sure Eva Moskowitz will be keeping all the Success Academy schools open for HER scholars. So anyone who doesn't must be bashed on UB. [ Reply | More ]

I always want our politicians to underestimate emergencies. Even if most weather reports expect 20 inches of snow, it's much better to assume less, just like Bloomberg did when he jetted off to his warm resort. That's the kind of politician I admire. Because as long as he lets me open up my charter schools in upper middle class neighborhoods, I love Bloomberg and will post anti-de Blasio rants over and over even if they make me look like an idiot!
