Here we Croup again....

Yep the title says it all... But this time its not Brooke, thankfully since she just got over it from last weekend. Nope its my little miss Kara, She has had some kind of virus all week and this morning at about 5:30am it developed into croup (or at least thats when the most horrible sounding cough started. I knew right then and there that she had croup so when I woke up I gave my (sick) husband 2 choices, either he takes Kara into the ER to get the steroids or he takes the other two kids to the birthday party that they were suppose to go to at 9am this morning. He chose to take the older two to thier party. So off to the ER me and Kara went. We got in pretty fast and in less then a half hour she had her steriod shot and a popcycle for breakfast. Since we've been through this twice with Brooke we know what to do already but this time around we are watching alot more closely because Kara sounds horrible, her cough is really bad her breathing is bad and she can barely cry. I am a bit more worried this time around. Brooke never sounded this bad, which is kind of weird just because Brooke as asthma so you would figure she would get it worse. So again I sit another week (my 2nd in a row to be exact) nursing a sick child with croup....

Have a great Weekend!

Oh, Catrina, I'm so sorry. I know how bad it feels to have a little one sick. I think (I hope) croup sounds worse than it really is. I am hoping EVERYONE is fine...?????

Sending love and get well wishes...
