Croup

We could tell poor little Evan wasn't feeling very well on Wednesday (of course while we had family in town. He always gets sick when we have family in town or when we visit family out of town...). Thursday and Friday morning weren't much better, so we took him in and came home with a diagnosis of croup. So we rented a nebulizer at the home health place and having been doing a few treatments everyday. Of course he hates it. Then after 2 or 3 treatments he decided to hold it himself and not fight us over it! And he even put the tube in his mouth! We usually still have to hold it out in front of him, but he will suck on it for a few minutes every time. And this might sound kinda strange, but I think it's so cute!

We're still doing a few more treatments, but he seems to mostly be back to his normal, happy, energetic self!

Never dealt with croup yet...knock on wood! Glad he's feeling better. We have a nebulizer for Landon for asthma and he HATES it. But it's a mask that goes over his face. Maybe we need to look into this directly in the mouth stuff!

Reggie's nebulizer was a mask thing too that went over his nose and mouth and it looked like a dinosaur. The dinosaur made all the difference.

Feel better quick Ev!
