Elijah Update

My poor little guy has quite a week. Tomorrow will be his 10 month birthday- where has the time gone. This past weekend he went for his 9 month appt and weighs 16lbs 2 oz and is 27 inches long. He had 3 shots since we were a bit behind. Well, that night he got croup SO bad! He was struggling to breathe, so we took him to the ER. Marks parents watched the girls(we are so thankful) so Mark could come too. We spent 6 hrs there with no sleep. They gave him steroids to open his throat and a nebulizer treatment to help him breathe and then monitored him for 4 hrs to make sure he responded okay to the treatments. He did and we were able to go home at 7am. We went home, then to a soccer game, then to a birthday party and we were supposed to go to a play but it was too much on NO sleep. Elijah did okay during the day (we didnt take him all those places- he rested at home!) but by night time he was wheezing again. Sunday morning, we took him back to the ER where they redid all those things and sent me home 5 hrs later. We havent returned to the hospital and he seems to be on the mend.
Thank the Lord!
I am SO ready for HOT weather and no more sickness:)
