Maria was a bit tired on Sunday (2 naps) and had a slight runny nose, but we were still plenty freaked out when she woke up at 9:30 pm on Sunday wheezing and freaked out because she couldn’t catch her breath.
We finally got her to calm down and her breathing back on track, but we still headed straight to the ER with her.
Luckily it apparently isn’t crazy flu season, and the ER wasn’t as busy as we’ve seen it in the past. Of course her symptoms had subsided by the time we got there. Our doctor though didn’t take our concerns lightly, and gave the diagnosis of mild croup. So one dose of oral steroids and a grape popsicle, 90 minutes later and we were on our way home!
Of course, she was knocked out of day care for 2 days, and tomorrow morning we have a follow up with our pediatrician, but so far it is looking like we will be back to our “normal” routine by noon tomorrow!
