I can't believe I forgot to post about this! This is how commonplace croup is in our home.
Elijah woke up with croup at 11:00 on Saturday night. I have been dealing with some exhaustion/insomnia (a lovely combination, let me tell you..), so my wonderful husband got up with him and gave him a neb. Well, I did have to see Elijah with my own eyes to make sure he was ok (he was; so thankful he remains so calm now), but then I went back to sleep. We tried to get rid of it with a regular neb (no epi) and cold outside air, but he was up again in another hour with another episode. Dan got up again and gave him an epi neb and that did the trick, as it always does!
And he has been just fine ever since. No cough or anything!
