First off Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I hope you all are having super relaxing, lovely days.
My day started off that way…P made me the best breakfast, complete with a “bacon mommy”
But then the rest of the day wasn’t quite as fun. We had to take Sam to the ER. Yesterday she woke up from her nap with a terrible cough, one of those that makes you think she must be a closet chain smoker. After a fever all night & some labored breathing today we figured it was better to be safe than sorry & take her in. A chest xray, blood work & a few hours of observation later & we’re back at home. She’s upstairs napping with Daddy right now so I thought I’d take advantage of a few minutes to myself to throw up a post. Sorry I haven’t been able to write much this week, I still don’t have my laptop & now I’ve gone & lost our camera battery charger too. A dead camera & kaput laptop has put a bit of a damper on the blogging. Bums we out. When it rains it pours right?
So we still no idea what she has, maybe croup? But at least I’m not freaking out that she’s having an asthma attack, bronchitis or pheomonia. I’m just going to keep an eye on her breathing & keep rotating the Motrin & Tylenol to keep the fever down. But you know what? It’s kind of poetic having stuff like this happen on Mother’s Day, I mean isn’t that what being a mom is all about?
We’ll go to the pediatrician in the morning & I’ll let you know what they say…I’ve never dealt with croup before but I think I’m supposed to stick her in a steamy bathroom or the cold night air??
