you got it...
we landed in the ER last night....2nd time since june. little hudson. poor dude. he has croup. which is the worse sounding illness ever, i swear. i had no idea what it really was. i basically had heard of it before but never encountered it first hand. scary stuff. hudson was FINE yesterday. we were out all day w/ friends, at soccer games, playing, eating. we came home around 9pm. everyone got settled into bed and around 11:30 hudson woke up (luckily he was in our room on a pallet in the floor having a sleepover) and he just had a little cough and then suddenly freaked out and was screaming and crying and said he couldn't breathe as he was gasping for air. i rushed him into ER and they immediately took him back and said he had croup and gave him a steriod treatment. we had to stay for a couple hours afterwards to watch his progress which didn't improve. at that point they were going to admit him but then tried another steriod treatment. waited another 2 hours and then they said he had improved enough to go home. they told us though that the 2nd night is actually the worse though and that if he had any problems we were to bring him back in immediately and they would admit him. so we are praying HARD right now that he will make it through the night w/out incident. i have a bag packed and ready however, just in case we do need to head in i wanted to have some stuff prepped. i just hope i get to wake up with it all still by the front door.
sooo, between hudson's croup, parker's ear infection and mark's bum foot we are a sorry little clan these days. i am hoping we are able to recover and get healthy around here soon!
so here's to a restful, uneventful evening at casa de furse. :)
