That's the short span of time that has elapsed since Cadence's last 'coughing' nightmare. Last night we were up from 11-1 ish with a total of 4 pukes induced by coughing. Today when we got home she pretty much coughed non-stop so I scooped her up and headed to the clinic for a mere 2 hours. We came home with antibiotics, nasal spray and a mission to get in touch with our doctor tomorrow to set up an appointment and try to get to the bottom of things. Cadence puked 40 minutes after injesting the antibiotic ... GREAT!!!! We are currently watching Alvin and the Chipmunks at 10:20 in the evening. There is no reprieve from the cough ... only a couple of more deposits into the bucket! This will undoubtedly be a L O N G night. The only light is that the usual pattern means tonight will be the worst of it ... let's hope so ... we are planning to head north tomorrow after daddy gets home from work. I have little faith that I will be making it in to work myself. Allergies? Asthma? There has to be more to this ... I am at a point of needing answers. Cadence is a trooper but enough is enough!

Poor girl! Poor you!
I usually do this with my asthma attacks. Breathing treatments are such a relief... Hope things get better and you guys get some relief and sleep!
