The word for the morning

is croup.

It's an awful word, and a truly horrible way to start the morning.  Who needs caffeine when you can have adreneline?

She's fine - we steamed her, she's been to the pediatrician, and she has a three day course of steroids to keep those breathing passages open while she throws off the virus.  Hopefully I won't need to spend the night in the bathroom with the shower running.

Poor thing.

Poor Charlotte! :(

Hope she shakes it off soon.

I hope she gets over it soon.

She had her last dose of prednisone this morning, so we'll see what tonight brings. In a pinch I'll dose her if she gets really bad, but right now I think it's calmed down to a dry cough. We can cope with that. From what I'm reading, it's about now that she stops getting the benefit of my immune system and has to start relying on her own, so we're going to start seeing the small illnesses more often.
