23 Weeks

Looking at this face you would never know that he's had croup, or "Crewp" as we call it, all week. There was a nasty bug that started with one of the cousin and it kind of spread like wildfire (what can you expect when you have 20+ people in a house sharing toys, touching door handles, coughing/sneezing). We figured it was inevitable the boys would get something.

Fast forward to the beginning of the week and he had the barking cough and strider, but was his happy energetic self. I didn't want to take him in if they were just going to tell me put him in a room with steam, run a humidifier at night, etc. I called the nurses line and not 15 seconds into me explaining the situation, she hear Crew in the back and said I needed to bring him in. We took him in, the doctor listened for a couple seconds and knew it was croup, sent in a prescription for an oral steroid and sent us on our way. Within about 8 hours of the steroid the strider had almost gone away completely. After a few days, he was good to go. His sleeping has taking a toll for the worse, but he's healthy now. Right now, that's all that matters.
