When my son was approximately 1 year old, I took him back w/ me on a trip to SF to visit my best friend and her husband. While in the City we stopped off at ta cupcake cafe to meet my old coworkers so I could show off my son. One of my co-workers was a gay male who is HIV positive. We were all having fun laughing and talking about old times at the job (an investment banking firm w/ more characters than a Pixar movie) my friend he put some icing on one of his fingers and put it in my son's mouth. I went from having a great time to panicking internally. My Mother works for Children's Hospital (as a medtech) and told me I was being paranoid that there was no way my son could have been infected, but when you are a Mother and it's your child, all reasoning goes out the window. Is this something I should have him tested for? What if he bit down on his finger? What if he had a torn / slightly bleeding cuticle? All of these thoughts went through my mind. I couldn't tell my husband either b/c unfortunately he is not extremely gay friendly. He would be very upset w/ me. I don't know where else to turn. It's been almost a year since this occurrence but I am still worried and concerned.
