Well its official. Bella has croup. She has never had it before, and its horrible. She actually got it last week, and is feeling much better now, but this week has been a nightmare. The first night she was up most of it coughing. On Valentines day she woke up at 1 am coughing so much she vomited... twice. Then she went back to sleep (with no fever). Then at 2:30am she woke up crying and when I got her out of her crib she was burning up. I took off all her clothes and took her temp and it was 105 degrees! So Armando and I rushed her into emergency. She had to take a full dose of Tylenol AND Motrin to get the fever down. Then they gave her a breathing treatment (which she screamed through), then vomited again from being so upset. When she finally calmed down they came back in to give her a shot! So we didn't get home til 5:30am and Armando had to be at work at 7am. Shes getting better, but still gets bouts of coughing streaks which last up to 5 minutes... I feel so bad. We have the humidifier running all day and night, and keep her on Motrin, but i wish there were more i could do.... Any advice?

Nana's 60th Birthday!

Its a late post, but better late than never! Last month we had the pleasure of celebrating her 60th Birthday! We had a bash for her at Natalies house, and were able to show her how much she means to all of us. We are so thankful for her and all that she does for our family. Any one who knows her knows what a saint she truely is. We are thankful to have a wonderful mother (mother-in-law), and Bella is lucky to have such a wonderful Nana who she loves so very much!
