The Last Day of 2007

Tubby developed croup last night as the final touch to such an already *grand* day yesterday.....equalling very minimal sleep for the both of us. Once awake this morning, he quickly spiralled downhill over the course of an hour, seemingly trying to suck in the air that he needed to breathe, leading me to begin preparations to visit the ER. Bob prescribed some of Laura's leftover steroids, and out of desperation, I tried a neb with him, not expecting it to work against croup. He must also have a touch of Laura's wheezing illness, because 15 minutes after the neb, he was actually breathing without difficulty as long as he remained calm. Whew! I have a feeling this is going to be a LONG day.
Oh...I forgot to mention that what started out as a joke, turned into a neighborhood party at our house tonight for New Year's Eve, kids and all.....not so sure that is going to fly tonight under the present circumstances.....but the kids are madly cleaning the house today just in case, and I have already shined my sink!
