At 3 a.m. we heard a horrible, horrible sound coming from the other end of the house.
It was Little man. He was coughing. It was so raspy and awful-sounding.
We decided right then that as soon as the doctor’s office opened (yes, they’re open on Saturday mornings!) that we would call.
It turns out that Little man has the croup. And not just him – we all have it. I think I have it the least of the three of us – Stephen is miserable and Little man sounds awful. My cough is annoying me, but I really don’t feel too, too bad. I am thankful!
The doctor gave us a prescription for some steroids to help clear Little man’s cough up, and she recommended an otc cough syrup for Stephen and I.
We just had Little man at church last night, but he didn’t seem that sick then. We wouldn’t have taken him if he did! But when he woke up coughing like that – he had definitely gotten worse quickly.
We won’t be going to the church Christmas party tonight, and we’re still not sure about church tomorrow. We’re going to play it by ear and see how sick we all are in the morning. We might end up going, but we’re just not sure yet.
