We took Karsie into the pediatrician's office today because her cough has continued. She has the croup which is inflammation of the vocal chords. So she has been given a bunch of medicine to help. She is now going to get albuterol for her lungs to help breath during coughing fits, a steroid to help the inflammation go down, and an antibiotic to help with an ear infection that she doesn't have but is starting to develop. Most of these medications last only about a week, so hopefully she will start to show signs of improvement fairly soon.
