    We woke up 7.30am this morning to Dan wheezing like a seal and having trouble breathing. We thought he was choking so as the panicking parents we are :oops: we took him to A&E (after he was hospitalized and bluelighted to ER with bronchlitis I've always been a tad paranoid!) Turns out he's got croup. Poor baby has been having trouble breathing and coughing like a seal all day :(


    ***Well we ended back up in A&E last night as he was having trouble catching his breath due to stridor. He was admitted to hospital and given steriods, but let out this morning on a 24 hour release. incase he's bad again tonight. Appartenly its worse at night, which I can well believe.
    Its been a weekend!!

    :hug: :hug: :hug: For you and Dan

    My little brother got taken in to hospital with it last year. It was horrible listening to that nasty cough but after a night in hospital he was allowed home and he recovered fairly quickly(he did have a bit of a cough for quite a while after though).
