The sounds of croup
You know that feeling, deep in your gut, when you look at your child and you know they are sick before they have any sick symptoms? I got it this morning, even though my daughter seemed to have recovered from a light cold last week. And by the time evening came it was clear that she got croup.
That cough is so scary-sounding... we got a note from her preschool that a few kids got croup so I guess we didn't escape it. Sigh... for her and for us:(
We did the steam in the shower, and she has a humidifier running, but she just woke up with a cough attack and gave me this horribly sad look of "Help me mommy!" I hate feeling so helpless, so bad for her....
And then of course as soon as we got her to sleep the juggle conversation started - who can stay home with her when. Oh, these are the times I slightly -- ok, not slightly -- envy my friends who have full-time nannies to help out... Could definitely use an extra hand now:)
