Our over night stay in the hospital with Ayden

so Sunday Ayden sounds a little raspy we thought uh oh shes getting a cold.then Monday sounds a little worse and we give her tylenol cold & flu by 5 pm its bad she goes to bed at 10:00 and is having a very hard time breathing and can tell shes working hard so we keep a very close eye on her at about 11 or so she cant hardly breathe and were on our way to the er we get 2 minutes from the house and her lips are purple and shes not breathing so Troy calls 911 and they send us to the fire station....once we get there they check her out and were going to transport her to the hospital but that makes her more upset and stressed out so we decided to drive her there and if anything happend we were told pull over and call 911 so we get there sign in and get into room to wait for over 2 looong hours for a Dr to even come in that was hard Ayden wanted to walk and get into everything she was stressed and very irritable . CROUP SHE HAS CROUP it is a bad case of it they had to do a breathing treatment they gave her steroids and motrin for the fever she had a monitor hooked up to her toe which she didnt like at all at 3:45 she finally fell asleep and Troy slept on the floor for about 30 minutes they had to keep her there for observation and determin weather or not she had to stay another night then finally at 7 am Tuesday morning we got to go home she is still on sterooids and will be for 3 days and we have to keep a very close eye on her...this really scared us just watching her struggle for air its 2:00 pm now and she just woke up and is sitting on daddys lap the dr said keep her calm and stress free and relaxed andyone who knows Ayden knows thats going to be hard keeping her laying down or sitting down relaxing..I am exhausted but so thankful she is doing ok
