Canon woke up with a really bad sounding cough at 12am. Right away we knew it was croup because of how bad he sounded and how he was wheezing every time he tried to breathe. We took him outside on our deck into the fresh air which helped him breathe a little easier. He would fall asleep for a little bit then cough and wake himself up crying. It was so sad to see him so miserable. After about an hour being out on the deck, he was still wheezing with each breath so we decided to take him into the ER for the first time. Todd's parents were so nice to come over and stay at the house with Everson so Todd and I could go to the hospital. At the hospital they gave Canon some medicine with steroids to reduce the inflammation of his airway and did a breathing treatment. We finally got home just before 3am and to bed we all went. Just four hours of sleep for me and Todd. Needless to say we were both pretty beat the whole day. Everson had no clue we even left and Canon slept until 9:30am. Canon is doing better today. His cough sounds like a "normal" cough and no more straining to breathe. He is still pretty fussy for most of the day, but I can't blame the poor guy.
