Hannah is sick. Yuck! She started with a runny nose on Sunday and it has progressed into an all out snot-fest! I have never seen so much snot. Her poor little nose is so red and dry from all the wiping (which really isn't a lot since she won't let me near her face). Yesterday she woke up crying and when she would breath in it sounded like a seal barking. I knew that wasn't good, so we headed to the doctor to have her checked out. Of course she didn't make the barking/wheezing sound while we were there, but the doctor listened to my description and diagnosed her with croup. She is now taking a steroid medicaton - prednisone - and is also getting a round of medicated eye drops for her goopy eye. Poor thing. Thankfully she is looking and sounding a lot better today and I haven't heard that telltale croup cough since yesterday morning, so maybe she never really had it....who knows?! Just praying that she is on the mend and will back to normal soon! But I will say that she has really handled this sickness like a champ! Despite all the congestion, she is still her happy self and crawling all over the place! I will post a new video of her crawling soon. She is really a pro now.
