woof. woof.

Sweet girl, you kinda scared us Saturday with a fever and a deep, barking cough that wouldn’t let go of you until you vomited. The night was pretty much sleepless. Spooked even more by your rattling breath on the intake the next morning, we phoned the nurse on call and were directed to sit with you in a steamy shower for 10 minutes, then head to Vanderbilt Children’s ER.



Croup! That’s what you had, and you sounded like an angry seal. After a liquid dose of steroids, the swelling in the tiny space between your vocal chords lessened. Five days later, and you are still coughing, but feeling much better. Good enough for your third birthday party tomorrow, we hope!
