Natalie has croup. I had no idea how incredibly scary croup attacks were. Unfortunately, now I know. Last night she woke up crying, but no sound except a high squeel. Her cough was terrible, and at this point, I wasn't sure what was going on. I was concerned if she was having trouble breathing, and was debating about whether or not to take her to the ER. My parents were able to fill me in on what was going on...and what to do for her. (thanks guys, sorry for the 1am call)

We saw her pediatrician today, and her lungs and ears are clear. He confirmed she has croup. Her symptoms are much better during the daytime, but again tonight, she was sounding bad before she went to bed. Please keep her in your prayers.

Prayers and hugs coming your way. We have been in those shoes and even had to go to the ER for it. Wesley's case was SEVERE. I pray that Natalie makes a smooth recovery.
