The last week: An Update

Hello lovely friends and family.  Just a little update for ya.

Little Man came down with a cold last Thursday.  He was just getting over a cold when he caught this one.  I don’t know if it was just a really bad one or if his immune system was just weak from being sick for two weeks before that, but he ended up developing croup.  Needless to say we ended up taking him to the ER Friday night a little after midnight and were there until almost 6am. They gave him an oral steroid to easy the inflammation in his air ways which was causing the difficulty breathing and two breathing treatments, one when we got there and one before we left.  Oh how thankful we are for modern medicine and the doctors and nurses who sacrifice their wee-morning hours to work in the children’s ER.  Love, love, love them!

Needless to say, we pretty much spent the weekend catching up on sleep and nursing a sweet boy back to health.  Little Man is getting so much better, and coughing less every day.  Just to prove it to you, here is a picture of him being his cute self just yesterday.

We’ll keep you posted.  We are hoping we are on the up swing.  For goodness sake, is cold and flu season almost over yet??

Love ya’s!
