Well, today marked a first for Danny, but it wasn’t one for the baby book (not that I’m on top of keeping one anyway!). Today was the first time he got sick. Both he and Becky woke up this morning with a barky cough. While Becky’s cough slowly improved over the course of the day, his worsened. I ended up taking them in to the pediatrician (all four of them, and it actually went much better than I expected to be 4-on-1 at the office), and Danny was prescribed an oral steroid to help him breathe. His oxygen levels were fine, but the doctor didn’t want to take any chances, given his young age.
So, even though I can hear him hacking away upstairs, I’m praying he sleeps peacefully tonight. At least he was all smiles before bedtime!
