The last 2 nights have been fun-filled with croup…both the babies had it. Poor Ava…everytime she would fall asleep..she’d wake herself up coughing….and the sound…oh my….it would scare the crap out of her…then she would say that she felt she couldn’t breathe…then out on the step we would go….2am….3am….5am…then finally i gave up to my bed and let her father take over the shift…i stayed with Nolan..he’s much better to stay with…when he coughs he just goes back to sleep. Ava gets so anxious with it. Anyway….yesterday I got them a cool-mist humidifier and what a difference that made…i put it in with Ava last night and she slept all night and bam..croupy voice/cough is much improved today…maybe it’s just run its course but she sounds great and is in a much better mood.

Today marks my last day of vacation….:( i’m so sad..i don’t really want to go back to work tomorrow……they are saying it’s quite heavy there…i guess there are a few COPD-ers full of pneumonia, ventilated…so makes for a long shift….oh well….i’m crossing my fingers the neonatal course starts soon…there is an expected start date of the 22nd of feb. Oh i’m hoping…that’ll be so much easier on the back….
