The doctor looked at her for a minute and confirmed that she had croup (I'm a genius). She was having such difficulty breathing that the doctor was on the fence about whether to send us to the hospital. I told her how far away we lived, and that helped her make a decision. Thus began Sora's first overnight hospital journey (and mine too) since she was born.
Sora was a champ! She had three nebulizer treatments, which she hated, but the rest was pretty easy breasy. She was already sounding way better by 9 p.m. Overall, I'm sure she would have recovered on her own eventually, but it was SOOO nice to go to the hospital and make her feel better almost instantly.
I know that we are so super lucky that this is the sickest she's really ever been. I can't imagine being a mom who has to spend any more time in the hospital, and I am so glad that I have such a healthy kid!
