[ - ] My 5 yo DS is running a fever for the second time in a month. The first time, the fever was high and lasted around 4 days, and the doctor said it was probably just a virus. Now, the fever is back and I'm becoming incredibly paranoid that it's being caused by something more serious (like leukemia). I'm going to call the doc again, but anyone else have experience with this? Fwiw, the only other symptoms are swollen lymph nodes in neck, looks tired/pale and has no appetite. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I totally get your concern... I'm a little like that too. But I think it's far more likely just a virus. My friend's son (a little older than your DC) had a high fever for about 5 days. My own DD just had a low-grade fever and headache yesterday, but seems fine today. I feel like EVERYONE is sick at this time of year. [ Reply | More ]

I would make sure dcs college was funded. Then, I would set up a college scholarship at my high school. I would buy a modest two bedroom two bath apartment (I have a teen son), that probably used 4m. I would take 1m and set it up so I could "live" off interest. I would take one fabulous vacation (with my son). I would probably give his father 1 million to make his life easier. By this point I might be out of money - if not, I'd give a little (lot by my standards) to church. Any dimes left - just invest to live. I would keep working and live frugally but with peace of mind that single moms rarely feel. [ Reply | More ]
