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.
