what do you do when your 2 year old wakes up and can't breath? take him to the ER right?! well what if you are the one that had to stay home with the sleeping babes? clean, and blog of course! All day today Gage has had a runny nose. no biggie, allergies are everywhere for my family right now. So I gave him some benadryl and thought all would be well. We put him to bed at about 9:45 and by 11:45 he is up screaming and gasping for air and coughing this barky cough. I got him out of bed and tried to calm him to see if I could get his breathing better. Jared called our home teacher to give him a blessing. We got him to sleep and calm. about an hour later he was struggling again, not bad, but enough that it still worried us. so Jared decided to take him to the ER. I got to stay here and worry. But all my sweet kiddos are sleeping and we don't need to call and wake anyone else. So here I am doing the dishes, picking up toys, and blogging. Jared called to say that Gage has croup (which I thought was the culprit), he will get a breathing treatment and take steroids for a few days. and it looks like he maybe a crouper-where everytime he gets a cold or illness he will get this croupy cough. the poor kid. at least we know all is well now. They will be home soon, and maybe we will sleep. I guess surgery is off for now too. oh well. it can wait.
