last night was bad. z didn't have the croupy cough yesterday, just an incessant dry hacking cough. i tried giving him the $13 for a tiny amount of herbal cough syrup, and it did nothing for him, so i tried a little packet of dextromethorphan/guiafenesin (kids medicine in granule form). he went to sleep fairly quickly, because i didn't hear coughing anymore. however, when i was finally trying to get to bed, what do i hear? coughing, coughing, and more coughing. he wasn't crying for me, so i just tried sleeping through it. this continued throughout the night - hearing coughing, which made me very nervous because it sounded like it was getting croupy again, and trying to just sleep through it. i'm so tired.
