just another sleepless night


dr. j hard at work. fabs actually rather enjoyed this.

the night started with projectile spit up and an explosive diaper. i should've known it was not going to be a good night. fab's had a cough throughout the day that gradually got worse. i decided i would call the pediatrician first thing in the morning. then out of nowhere the cough was a very distinctive bark. "we have to go to the e.r.", i told j. after a rather lengthy registration, repeating our story 17 times to 17 people [maybe it was 3...], testing, waiting, waiting and waiting, the doctor was ready to send us home. she mentioned something about us being first time parents, blah blah blah. i started to question where this serious bark came from and my little bean let out a serious bark. "oh", the doctor stopped in her tracks. she let us know that this was definitely croup and she was glad she heard it so she knew what she was dealing with, blah blah blah. sooo, we ending up spending the night in the hospital. but we are very happy that the breathing treatments and steroid shot worked well and quickly and we are home. it's not like we sleep when we're home anyways...

  3. Don't ever let a doctor or someone else tell you you don't know what's going on with your own child! You're the mom and you know when there's something wrong!

    Hope she's doing better and you and J were able to get a good long nap!

    Merry Christmas!!
