Feeling Better

It has been such a long weekend! My son was sick with laryngitis & croup. He was coughing non stop for two whole days. I felt like I was loosing my mind, listening to him cough over and over and knowing there was really nothing I can do to stop it. I tried everything! My husband & I elevated his pillow, dusted his room, left his air purifier and cool mist humidifier on, we steamed the bathroom and all sat in there for 20 minutes, gave him benadryl when he complained of a tickle in his throat, but nothing worked. It was exhausting. We were up at all hours of the night, trying to sooth him back to sleep. My little guy is a tough one though, because even with him coughing non stop, he kept a smile on his face and played around normally, so that was a good thing. Finally on Saturday, we took him to the Dr. where he told us he had laryngitis & croup. He is on a nebulizar regimen and now he is barely coughing, thank God! Now he is sleeping through the night and my husband and me are getting normal sleep as well. I’m so glad my son is feeling better.
