On Friday, March 11th, Carter finished all his antibiotics.  On Saturday he was good except for a runny nose.  Then at 3 am, I heard him on the monitor.  He was trying to cough but couldn't.  There was a horrible sound coming out.  He wasn't breathing well either.  He also had a fever.  So off to the ER we went. Caroline was sound asleep the whole time.  When we got there they said he had croup cause by a virus.  They gave him liquid epinephrine and a breathing treatment.  They watched him for a while and then sent us home. We got home about 7:30 am.  Poor little Carter just can't catch a break.  After breathing treatments and a little time, he's pretty much all better.  He sure has gotten fussy though.  He's been throwing some good fits!!  We had all our friends and family calling and checking on us again.  Sweet Sheree brought over dinner one night too.  We are so blessed to have so many that care about us. The Friday before all this, we had fires so close to us.  We rushed home from work and grabbed the computer (pictures) and got Pickles out of the house, then picked up the kids and went to Nanno and Papa's.  It was scary.  There was a fire in our neighborhood but didn't get any houses thank goodness.  The fires did get some homes though.  So sad!! We had to miss Caroline's recital.  :(

Fire trucks in the neighborhood.
Sick little boy AGAIN!
What Caroline did the whole hospital visit.  Then she was wide awake when we got home.
Feeling better a couple of days later.
