Today I am so thankful for doctors! It's such a blessing to live in this country and to have such good access to health care. My daughter was diagnosed with croup yesterday and we were able to get her right in for an appointment and the doctor gave her a prescription to help open her airways. (That was my major concern. She had lost a lot of color and was having difficulty breathing.) So, I gave her the medicine yesterday and by this morning she is doing MUCH better! The cough is more productive but hurts her less, I can hear her airways clearing, the color has returned to her face, her eyes aren't so big and puffy, her appetite has returned, she's drinking fluids again, she's still a bit raspy, but she doesn't have to whisper anymore. Praise the Lord for advances in medicine! Years ago children died from croup, and today it is cured with some home remedies and a little dose of steroid. I am so thankful for her quick recovery too. With daughter #2 due practically any day now, I was worried for her safety too. It wouldn't have been so great for her to come into the world with a sick sister at home. So, thanks for praying for those of you who are regulars on my blog. Em is doing MUCH better!
