Yesterday morning we rushed Owen to an urgent care doctor. Not knowing why your child is sick is scary.
His voice was raspy. His breathing was wheezy. He was having trouble breathing. We phoned the on-call doctor early in the morning, fearing it was an asthma or allergy attack or something worse.
Fortunately, he'll be okay. It's croup. Or, as the doc explained, a viral infection, diagnosed as laryngitis when adults have it. This means we'll slow down our usual fun and frolic. Somehow, though, I know there's no stopping this guy... :)
