My poor little monkey has been super sick since Friday night so I have been taking a computer break (first time I opened my lap top since Thursday) and enjoying the extra snuggles.
Friday night she woke up in the middle of the night crying so I brought her to bed with us, and then 30 min later she sat up gasping for air. We headed off to ER immediately where we spent the next 4 hrs (till 4:30 AM) getting steroids and breathing treatments and watching bubble guppies on the iPad. Oh and eating popsicles. Jasper and Tindra both thought it was pretty awesome to get popsicles at 3 AM. First time for everything!
After a croup diagnosis we finally stumbled into bed (me in Tindra's room with her) and got a couple hours of sleep. Saturday was spent cuddling and watching movies, as was Sunday, (with a little dunkin donuts run, which really was more for Drew and I who NEEDED coffee) and we found an empty park to let the kids get some fresh air and run around. Don't worry, as soon as I saw another car pull up with kids we headed home immediately.
I took T back to the peds yesterday as I didn't think she was improving as much as she should have been, and they agreed and after another round of steroids, she's feeling much better today I can tell!
When she's cuddling me, she's obsessed with 'petting the baby dinosaur' her hand always has to be on him. And last night, I took her into bed with me (still in her room) after midnight and she kept reaching around me no matter which way I moved to have her hand on my belly. I can't wait to see her as a big sister!
