You Guessed it... Croup Again

I got Internet For the hospital finally just the other day. I thought it would mean that we wouldn't have to be admitted again, I was wrong.

This morning tova woke with very noisy breathing. I gave the happy girl ventolin a massive breakfast and kept an eye on her for a couple of hours. When the breathing turned into croup coughing, I rang uv to ask him to come home from work and then rang the ambulance. They both arrived pretty much at the same time. Nissan was such a good boy. I told him that the ambulance was on it's way and he asked me where he should be whethe paramedics came into the house.

Tova was happily playing with the iPad on the couch breathing so loud that the windows could have shattered.

The paramedics took tova and I into the ambulance and gave her adrenalin. One of the paramedics has a child that had spent time in nicu and about two years of croup after. So it was nice that he had that connection. Ambo people are always so nice.

Tova responded well to the adrenalin and didnt need a second lot.

She is asking to go home and isnt looking like she is going to go to sleep anytime soon. At least I'm not sleep derived for the first time ever on a hospital admission. It was nice of tova to get sick at a reasonable time of day for a change.

Im very sick of it. When I rang the ambulance I had to fight back tears. I wasn't going to cry for being scared, more because it is enough now (and a little scary). I thought the 000 person would think things were worse than they were if I was crying like a frightened parent, so I held the crying in. If crying would make the. Romp stop, I would cry!

Nssim is completely wee wee toilet trained and almost poopoo trained. Tonight I got a phone call from the boys telling me that Nissan was in bed in his night time nappy, he got up and told abba that he needed to do kaka in the toilet, so abba put Nissan on the toilet and success! Such a clever boy! I never thought I would see the day.

Home tomorrow if we remain this boring overnight.

The room mates are good. Very respectfully parents for once. It doesn't bother me whe the kids are I crying etc, but I do get shitty when the parents can't shut up or when they leave lights on, oh and tas up really loud. Tonight all parents are quiet. Perhaps they are frequent flyers like us or have been here for ages.
