We are making gingerbread houses today (more pictures of that later) and so I decided to let JD try some candy. He isn’t a huge lover of sweets. As a matter of fact if you give him a sour patch kid he will suck off all the sour stuff and then spit the gummy part out. Today it was time for a red vine. He hated it at first but by the time we were done he needed a bath. Here are some videos.
We are all feeling a lot better today. I’ve started to do a few things that I read online to help Narcolepsy and I’m hoping they will work. JD is still coughing, and has a little stuffy nose but it’s a marked improvement over what he was like before. Oh and before I forget, this is for Mickie…
“Croup, which is marked by a harsh, repetitive cough similar to the noise of a seal barking, can be scary for both children and their parents. After all, attacks of croup may jar your children awake at night and leave them gasping for breath.
The harsh, barking cough of croup is the result of swelling around the vocal cords (larynx) and windpipe (trachea). When the cough reflex forces air through this narrowed passage, the vocal cords vibrate with a barking noise.
Because children have small airways to begin with, those younger than age 5 are most susceptible to having more symptoms with croup.
Croup usually isn’t serious. In fact, for most cases, croup can be treated at home. Sometimes, your child will need prescription medication.” –MayoClinic.co
Also, since we aren’t getting any snow here I decided it should snow on our blog. Enjoy.
