I heard it last night, that awful barking sound (damn seals).
This time it's my oldest. The last time he had croup, about 2 years ago, it was pretty bad. I mean bad enough that when we took him to the dr., the nurse that came in first, went to get the dr. from another appt. to come in "STAT". Fingers crossed we don't have a re-run of that episode.
So, we're together today. Errands to run, oil changes to be had (mystery shopper deal), things to return...hopefully he's feeling better by the end of today. I hate to see him sick, especially since he rarely gets sick now - thanks to his early introduction to group daycare - he was exposed to just about everything and now his immune system is pretty strong...well, apparently except for croup.
So, one day off for first grade for him, at least it's not the end of school just yet --- see below for why...
