It has never failed me yet.

I knew it was coming. All the tell-tail signs were there. My little guy is officially is sick. This time seems a little different. Rooney seems to be handling it better so far.

He has, what I call, a junky cough. You can hear all the grumbling in it. What usually happens next, is he gets real tight, and struggles to breath. So far, he seems to be tolerating it well. He is a little horse, I hear a faint wheeze, and a slight bark to the cough. Those of you, that have gone through this, probably understand exactly what I am saying.

We are keeping low key today. You can tell he doesn't feel good, but he is not down for the count. I am really praying, that this is as bad as it gets, this time.


  1. Our boys used to get croup all the time when they were little. We used vaporizers, elevated the head of their beds, kept the temperature of their room cool, and used guaifenesin cough medicine to break up their cough. Shew...I don't miss those days AT ALL. Hang in there...ours outgrew this mess!

  2. Hang in there, Elaine. Does Rooney have asthma?

  3. Oh, poor Rooney. I am praying he will continue stable and get better really soon. Hugs!

  4. Take good care, a mother's job never ends, bitter and sweet, but always a bit sweeter! hang in there.
