I finally received a call around 3:30 am last night. I could hear Eamonn getting into trouble in the background, so I knew he was back to his usual self. Aidan was sound asleep, so I had to wake him up, get him in the car, and head off to the hospital to pick them up. When we arrived at the hospital, Eamonn filled us in on his little adventure. In the ambulance, they gave him a bear. Lisa filled in the technical parts. He did have croup and they had to give him steroids. They gave Lisa some literature on croup, so we wouldn’t freak out again.
After we got home, everyone went to bed. I stayed with Eamonn and before he went to sleep, he explained to me that he went for a ride in a fire truck. “Ambulance”, I told him. “I like the color of fire trucks”, he responded and went fast to sleep.
Thanks to everyone for their words of support last night.
