Do we have a seal in the house?

Graycen has been icky sick the past couple of days. I am pretty sure she has Croup. I used to get it a lot as a kid and from what she sounds like, it sounds the same to me. We're on the tail end of it now, but it has sucked the past few days. Runny nose, icky sneezes, nasty cough, wheezing, cranky and tired. That about sums up Graycen currently. We've been using Johnson's Soothing Vapor Bath followed by some nice Vicks Baby Rub on her chest and feet (something my Great Grandma told me about a LOOOONG time ago) and the cool mist humidifier at bed time. It seems like those things have been helping her out. They aren't getting rid of it, but it makes her feel better (or so it seems) I just hope we are done soon. I want to sleep at night instead of listen to her wheeze all night... :( Poor girl.

My poor Dolly. I wish I was there to rock her and give her hugs and kisses. Joey was one of those kids that use to get that crude. I thought they have a shot for that now.. you should check with her doc. Anyway... hopefully you will get your needed sleep and her also. I am sure she is not sleeping well either.
