So Oliver has croup. Last night my father in law and I packed Oliver in the car (Berto was at work) and took him to Urgent Care. (Side note for those of you that live in Queen Creek there is this amazing Pediatrics Urgent care in Gilbert called Good Night Pediatrics, they are open from 5 pm to 5 am 365 days a year. I highly recommend them). Anyway, the poor little guy wasn't really showing any signs of being sick just a slight fever yesterday morning. I thought it was teething. Well, by about 6:30 pm Oliver had this very nasty cough and a rattle in his chest. It seemed to come out of nowhere. I watched it for a while and then decided to call our insurances nurse hotline and talk to a nurse. She didn't really think I needed to go in but something told me I should anyway. So I asked Berto's dad to drive us so I could sit in the back with Oliver.
The hard part was having to hold my poor screaming baby while he recieved interveinus antibiotics and while he received a breathing treatment through a nebulizer. It was so hard. I was proud of myself for being strong and not crying myself. ( I really wanted to at some points) But I knew it was what he needed. I'm so glad I decided to listen to my instincts and take him in. It would have been a lot worse today if I had waited. Oliver is taking a little nap. A much needed nap... I hope my little baby gets better quick!
