The Seals are Back

The seals are back.

If you live in St. Louis and visit the zoo much, you know this statement is not true. 

The new Sea Lion Sound exhibit which will house both sea lions and seals in a naturalistic setting is still under construction, but slated to open June 30th.  To learn more click http://www.stlzoo.org/visit/thingstoseeanddo/historichill/sealionsound/ 
No, the seals I’m referring to are the seal-barking, croupy coughs that have plagued Natalie for the last three nights.  I’m hopeful that this is a limited engagement and tonight she sleeps more restfully.
At 1 a.m. I suggested we sit in a steamy shower to help her breathing.  She protested at first, but then gave in.  After about 20 minutes she declared, “Mommy, it worked.  You are a genius!”  Then patted my shoulder and added, “You can cry if you want, I don’t mind.”
