The good news: Lorelai is fine.
At about 4:30 this morning Eric woke up and heard Lorelai gasping for breath. She sounded a little raspy before bed last night, but that was it. Eric got her calmed down and breathing a little bit by the time I woke up. I ended up taking her to the ER at the Children's Hospital. If you ever have to go the the ER, 5:30 am on Sunday is a great time to go. I think we sat in the waiting room for two minutes (that's gotta be a record). I have to echo Jessica's praise for the Children's Hospital. Everyone there was great. They said she has the croup which is not super surprising since we heard it's going around, but it is still really scary to listen to. It sounded like Lorelai was choking. The Dr. said it will help to keep her calm. We'll be spoiling her a lot over the next couple of days. So that's the good news.
The bad news is that Lorelai may have been contagious at Evan's party yesterday so I inadvertently exposed 20+ people to croup. Sorry everyone! My prayer is that no one will get it. However, I think the most I can hope for is everyone getting it at the same time. Then we will all be over it in a week! In the mean time, I will be bringing meals around to anyone who gets it so feel free to start placing your orders! Sorry again!
