UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you believe it!! DD went to bed last night just fine and woke up sometime around 4am coughing uncontrollably! It was horrible! She has a temp now of 102. I think it's the croup or something. About a month ago they said she had the croup so.... It seems very similar to other time but worse in that the coughing is continuous. Poor baby.
She will be home again tomorrow. She can't seem to go to school for more the a week at a time. Poor DH is feeling bad that I'm having to deal with all this by myself. I feel bad for HIM. At least I'm here and can hold them and hug and kiss them and do whatever to help them. He's so far away and I'm sure he feels helpless.
Did mention that our water softener is leaking really bad too? UGH! I went to take DS and his friend to church tonight and there was a huge puddle!! I personally hate the damn thing. (Excuse me but I really do!!) It has caused us nothing but trouble since we moved in here. I'm turning it off until DH gets home and he can do whatever he wants to it. I say throw the damn thing away! (Excuse me again.)
Anyway, anyone have any secret remedies for the croup? We've been out in the cool night air, in the bathroom with the steam, and have a humidifier going. Any other ideas?
Have a great night.
