Conversations from the Corner Office

Lots: Awful cold with hacking cough, a fever and a runny nose. It's lasting >1 week. Its close friend RSV is on the rise as well.

Little: Strep. It's still out there. Wash those hands.

Lingering: Croup. With most viruses a trip to your doctor's office is an unsatisfying experience. There just isn't much we can do. But croup...now that's a different story. I smile on the inside every time I hear that barky cough because I know help is on the way. There's a steroid we can use a to calm that seal and make 2 AM a happier time for everyone.
