Another Phoebe ER visit
Phoebe just seems to be catching everything this year! And we don't even go many places! Yesterday she woke up with a cough and then had a fever in the afternoon. She woke up several times during the night with the awful cough and raspy crying and we would sit in a steamy bathroom for a while till she calmed down. Sunday (today) I stayed home the first hour of church while Phillip preached/taught the high schoolers (he and the youth minister switched places this Sunday). Then he came home for Phoebe duty, and I went to church to teach my 4th graders. After a quick lunch (always taco crunch on Sundays!), we all loaded up in the car and drove to the Children's hospital ER. We were there 3 hours and had X-rays and saw several doctors. Finally a diagnosis: Viral croup (like last time) and an ear infection. I wish Phoebe would get sick during the week when our regular doctors were in the office; it's a lot cheaper and less time-consuming. Oh well, at least we don't have to wonder what's wrong with her.
