Anna is sick, last night we had her rushed to hospital in an ambulance after she turned blue. Scary to say the least and the fact that our 'local' hospital was a 40 minute drive away!

Diagnosis: Severe Croup - oxygen sats ranging from 75% to 80%, struggling to breath, not eating or drinking.

She was put onto a neb and also given oxygen. Right now she is doing ok. I'll keep you updated...

Me: Awake since 5am yesterday until 11am today when I manage to get 2 hours sleep. So tired, haven't eaten but not hungry. Longing to curl up in bed. I've also had a migraine on and off for the past 6 days which doesn't help.....

You poor things. We've had Alexander in a few times with O2 sats down in the 70's (asthma and croup) and it's horrible, isn't it?

Hope today is a better day for her. And really hope that migraine goes away. Mine has been hanging around all week too. :(

Sorry about your migraine... that doesnt sound good at all either. Hope you can get some sleep... soon.
