The Croup is Crap!


Yes, I realize that this isn't the catchiest title ever but I'm serious. My baby Finn woke up on Wednesday morning with a nasty cough that I thought sounded like the croup. For those of you that do not have children, the croup cough typically sounds like a barking seal. Lovely. After a visit to the doctor and a dose of steroids I found out that I was unfortunately correct. I thought that we had seen the worst of it at that point. I was wrong. He now has the worst, green snot all over his face, cough all over his mother, drool all over everything, cold. He is still hacking too. It doesn't sound quite as bad as it did but it is still there. He is waking up every 1 1/2 to 2 hours at night sobbing and the only thing that calms him down (especially after I suck out his nose) is me nursing him. He is SO grumpy all day and only wants his father to hold him. I am tired and obviously a little whiny. I can't wait for this to be over!
