When It rains, It Pours

Literally…it rained for 2 days here. It never rains! It sucked because I had to take Little L to the doctors first thing Friday  morning. She developed a really bad cough during the night. So bad, her dad thought she quit breathing at one point. Come to find out she has the Croup of all things. What? Did I take her out to the park 2 whole times this past week.  Give me a break, right? They said her throat was also pretty red, (of course it was, she was up most of the night coughing her little head off), so they took a throat swab for strep. Won’t know them results till Monday. She is taking steroids for the croup, and seems so much better today. Yesterday, she cried most of the day and went from 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. without a nap!  Don’t know how she did that. She did sleep better last night, but tossed and turned alot, which means I was up most of the night making sure she was o.k. Needless to say, I. Am. Pooped!!!

Oldest went to the Orthopedic doc Wednesday.  She has a mild case of Scoliosis, so they will monitor it for now. She doesn’t have to go back for 4 months. They had to take 2 xrays beacuse her doctor didn’t send over the ones we had done the week before. We seen the curve, it is shaped like a C at her rib cage. He said she can and should be doing lots of activities to help strengthen the back.  We were so very happy to hear that it wasn’t as bad as we thought.
