The much needed weekend...

I can't tell you how hard this week has been. My daughter got a really bad case of Croup and it scared the living shit out of mom and dad. Tuesday night was especially rough. The tiny tiny had real problems breathing. It sounded like her esophagus was damn near closed. She slept next to me that night and there was times she would bolt upright where she could not get air. But I would hang her head over the humidifier and that usually pulled her out of it. The next day we take her to the doctor and they admitted her to the hospital. That was no fun. She hates the hospital. So it was miserable Wednesday night. She did get a lot better over that night. The doctor administered some steroid shot and that took like 24 hours to take effect, but when it did her breathing got better fast. She slept soundly last night but mom and dad have yet to recover from the loss of sleep. Mom is doing better than I am, she went to sleep at 7 last night, I had to get involved watching the Indians beat the crap out of the Yankees. Which I am not sorry for. Anytime you get the chance to watch the Yankees get an ass whoopin, its a good day. So here's to the weekend and good health. Posting will be back to normal on Monday.

Sorry about your little one, Wit. I'm glad everyone is recovering from a frightening life event.

Here's to a restful, healthy weekend!

BTW, I know it doesn't matter, but I've got to satisfy my anal tendencies, so please bare with me; we use the esophagus for swallowing food, and the trachea for breathing. Thanks..I feel better now.

Have a great weekend with your loved ones. - O W
