Our life for the last week...in pictures.

What a roller coaster ride.
We are going on 9 days of dealing w/ fevers.

NINE.DAYS.

Do I really need to explain more?
I promise the whole story when I'm not sleep deprived.

We have gone through a whole
BIG bottle of children's pain relief (generic tylenol).
A third of the way through children's ibuprofen.
2 shots of steroid.
4 doses of oral steroids.
Endless temperature readings.


And to top it off,
this has been my bed for the past 9 nights.
Not exactly my dream accommodations.


And the cool mist humidifier,
that runs 24/7.


That's all I got.
Thank God I have the wonderful husband that I do.
He's been a HUGE help.
I love me some Todd.
I can't wait to share the same bed with him.

For those of you that don't know,
3 kids w/ CROUP = no sleeping in your own bed.
Croup can lead to breathing difficulties.
I will be reunited w/ my bed & my hubby.

It's only a matter of time.

Hang in there! Did Dr. N say how long this would last?

Dr. N said croup lasts 5-7 days w/ initial onset. The coughing can last for 2 weeks. Great.
