Croup is a group of respiratory diseases that often affects infants under age 6. It is characterized by a barking cough; a whistling, obstructive sound (stridor) as the child breathes in; and hoarseness due to obstruction in the region of the larynx.
Did you read the first line. Affects children under the age of 6. Then why does my soon to be 8 year old still get it at least 3 times a year?
Ian went to bed fine last night. Looking back, I guess he was a bit more tired than usual. Didn't stay after school for Art Club because he was too tired. Woke up this morning sounding like a barking seal. Thankfully the Doctor keeps us with plenty of Albuterol refills so I instantly dosed him. Praying that it only stays a mild case and that there will be no trips to the ER and him complaining that he can't breathe.
