    Not too sure what croup all involves but by looking at the picture of Connor it sure isn't good times for all. Hope things get better soon. Love NeeNee

  1. Hi Anonymous, here's a definition of croup that I got off the web:

    "Croup is an infectious illness of the respiratory system involving the voice box and vocal cords (larynx), windpipe (trachea), and the airways leading to the lungs (bronchial tubes). It is usually caused by many different viruses, including those responsible for the common cold and influenza. Occasionally, it is caused by a bacterial infection. Croup can result in serious breathing difficulties in children. It is more common in babies over 6 months of age and young children, and it occurs more often in boys than girls. It tends to occur more often in the winter months when the weather is colder."

    In other words it's a really bad, loud & barky cough, fever, difficulty breathing & can turn into pneumonia. Kind of like bronchitis in adults.

    It STINKS. ; P

  1. Hi Nee Nee, that's so weird! Only the first half of your comment showed at first so I didn't know it was you who left the prior comment (hence my "Hi Anonymous").

    Looks like the problem fixed itself, WEIRD!

  1. Yeah D, he was sad. : ( Mainly because he couldn't run around like a crazy person like he normally does. At least he's feeling better now. : )
