Prayers for Monkey

Monkey is very sick with the croup. His airways are closing and hubby has finally gotten the steriods. I am hoping to avoid breathing treatments (at the hospital). We have been in a steamy bathroom and out on the porch bundled up. He is still barking like a seal. Please pray. His breathing is labored and he is struggling.

Blessings!

I'm sorry that he's so ill, Marva. I'll be praying for little Monkey. I'm sure he'll get over it, so please don't get stressed. I remember my twins both had some serious bouts with croup when they were toddlers, and once we had to stay in the er overnight, and it was awful. Kids get so sick, but they are great at boucing back.
Stay strong for your babies!
Hugs, Mimi

Praying for both you and the boys! Jake had croup several times when his first winter, it is scary!! Hoping Monkey outgrows it like Jake did. For now, take a nap when the helper comes and take care of yourself also!! Love Heather

Oh, that is so frightening. My youngest had several bad episodes of croup when he was smaller. Do you use a cool mist vaporizer in his room? That has made a world of difference for us. But it has to be cool... a warm one doesn't help my boy at all.
