Not So Sweet by Night

OK, scratch that. William is wonderful and smiley during daylight hours. Nights on the other hand... Well, let's just say croup is no fun for those of us looking for a restful night. Thirst, congestion, coughing, and an overall restlessness dominated our night. After he woke up for the first time, we brought William to bed to prop him up on a pillow for easier breathing and hooked up our humidifier, cranking it up to high.

I don't know what it is that makes little ones want to either sweetly lay their face on your face or lovingly touch your face when sleeping, but hot air and drool breathed directly into my face is not my idea of comfort. Nor were his 3 am attempts to exit our room by trying to crawl off the bed, point at the door, and repeat "hi" over and over. And then there was the crying...

Parents, the doc says croup is going around big time and travels fast. Hopefully we'll be done with it by the end of the week.

Hand, Foot, Mouth last month. Croup this month. What's next?
