Sicky Sickerson...

Well...little Winky is under the weather. We took him to the Dr. and they listened to his chest, breathing, checked his ears (for doggies) and he came through with a clean bill of health.

However for the "strange" cough (that he didn't hear while we were in the office) the Doc recommended I get him on Robitussin Night Cough and Cold. That was Friday...Sat. he ran a temperature and was very fatigued. The biggest thing is his cough. He's officially the "barking seal"....you mom's know what that means...CROUP...That's my personal diagnosis and one the Dr. said could be a possibility, however his age dictates that he's at the end of the spectrum for getting croup.

The cough is unmistakable... so, Sun. when the Dr's. office open's we'll be returning hopefully this time to get an antibiotic or steroid or something....He's miserable and has thrashed around in bed all night.

How do I know??? Because he's sleeping w/me, as daddy is at Uncle Jeff's house tonight because of an early morning return from Austin's UT game. Which I might add, UT pummelled RICE. Hook Em' Horns....Luke kept telling me that Daddy and Kunkle Jeff were at the Hook Em Horn's HOUSE.

Please pray for our sick boy and that an official diagnosis will be made and an appropriate treatment administered. I HATE to see him like this. I would take his place in a heartbeat...as long as they didn't make me stay in any hospitals.....Thanks.

Oh...I hate when they get sick on Friday...or actually start getting sick and when you take them in you really don't get the right diagnosis. Poor littls Luke. You are lucky to have a doctor open on Sunday! I hope Luke gets better!

I too hope he gets better soon. So sorry you were awake at 3:30 too. Though you were blogging and I was feeding and getting my little guy back to sleep. Love and hugs to you. The slide show thing is very easy. Click on slide from mine or Aimee's blog and it takes you right through it. :) Easy, breezy.
