Croup and Pink Eye. That is what we learned Maleen had last Wednesday night when we rushed her to the hospital because she could barley breath and had massive amounts of green goop coming out of her eyes. They rushed her into the trauma room and stripped her down (I was trying to be careful but apparently was not moving fast enough for the nurses and doctors)within about 10 minutes of our arrival and within 15 minutes they had started breathing treatments and were getting ready to give her a steroid shot. After several hours of observation we came home. She is still hacking (which apparently could go on for several weeks) and being treated for the pink eye. We are so lucky it wasn't something more serious because this almost gave me a nervous breakdown.
