Hi everyone! First I would like to thank everyone for all the great advice given on my last post. I think for right now I will leave C in the school he goes to. Another thing I wanted to say was that since I am new to blogging I never knew how many people care enough to give their time to write what they think. It's wonderful, I loved hearing from every one of you. Thank you for that.
Well last night A went to bed around 10. She was so tired and pretty much cried her self to sleep. I thought it was because she hadn't had a nap all day and was just so tired. Well since I got my knee done I haven't been able to sleep very well so it was about 12 by the time I went to bed. A still sleeps with us and was on my side of the bed. My husband moved her and she woke up and sounded like a dog barking. I couldn't believe it, she sounded fine (other than really upset) when she went to bed and 2 hours later sounded awful. So I sat in the bathroom with her while the shower was on hot to see if the steam would help. It did as long as she was in there so I did that several times last night. Today my husband is going to take her to the doctors but I'm not sure what else to do for her. Anyone have any ideas? I think she may have croup. Well wish us luck at the doctors that it's not anything to bad.
Follow up on A
Well the doctor said it's some kind of viral infection. He gave her a steroid to take. Which I hate to give her. It just makes her even crabbier than she already is. He also gave her medicine to give her breathing treatments which should help a lot. He wants me to bring her back in a couple of days if shes not better to do a chest x-ray. I guess to make sure she doesn't have pnemonia. She's still miserable so it's gonna be a long night. C also seems to think that he needs to irritate her all day. I'm ready to beat him ( I want to but I never do). Have you ever notcied that when one of the kids is sick the other one fights for your attention. I'm gonna go nuts!
