Today marks the 6th day of Charly's ongoing croup. After a week straight of terrible coughing, throwing up, wheezing, runny nose and diarrhea, Charly's nose started to bleed uncontrollably just the past two days. I was going to let this nasty cold just run its course, but when her nose started bleeding, I knew there was more to it than this crummy croup. So, this morning I took her in to the doctor's and came out with the following diagnosis:
*Bacterial Nasal Infection (never heard of that!)
*Left Ear Infection
It took me nearly an hour to study the prescription instructions as each one requires various dose amounts and directions extremely specific to each one. Currently she is asleep on an incline with a cool-air humidifier that makes you feel like you've walked into a swamp. I've lathered Vicks Baby Rub all over her chest and am hoping my concoction of "at home" remedies along with prescription medicine will finally do the trick!
