So after just over 24 hours of hearing my daughter sound like a spawn of a Donkey and Darth Vader I called the pediatrician to have her seen. Took her in today just prior to lunch because, well she was hee hawing like a donkey....seriously.....
Come to find out...she's got Croup.........good news is, because we caught it within the first 48 hours, they can give her a steroid to help it pass. Bad news, it could possibly get worse with sleep/laying down or overexertion which could cause us to make a quick (ha) trip to the ER for a special breathing treatment.
Good news, because she can get the two doses of steriods (sans roid rage I was assured by our fab pediatrician LOL) she hopefully will feel much better, and stop hee hawing in a few days!
And as if that wasn't just fabulous enough to win me the Mom of the Year award.... well ... Chad has hurt his back somehow. How? Dunno............. but it's bad. He left work yesterday halfway through the day and called me in OBVIOUS pain to tell me he was heading to the Chiropractor because it hurt to walk, sit, stand, breath, live......................... after spending time being tortured with the midevil devices at the Crack Doctor (get it... crack your back...hahaha...come on, comedy is the only thing getting me through this day...) it is actually WAY worse. He's in bad shape and even had to stay home from work today because he can't move. He's wearing a back brace for lumbar support and must return to the chiro tomorrow.
