On Saturday, Elly turned 21 months and got croup for the first time, all in the same day! We had a fun play group in the morning, extended our date with E to play in Elly's new crabby pool, and had one of mommy's friends over for dinner that evening.
All fun and wonderful, until Elly woke up around 11pm with a terrible barking cough, tears, and trouble breathing. We called the medical advice line who sent us to the ER. She got to wear a teeny little hospital gown and get checked out. Just a mild case of croup. She got some steroids and we went home to snuggle in bed the rest of the night! She's already feeling mostly better... although she's still trying to take advantage of the "snuggle in bed with mommy" opportunities!
Oh, and she's also wearing undies about 70% of the day, now!
