Night after night I had been getting little sleep. Jason Jr. was coughing so much in his sleep that he would wake up every little while crying. One night I woke up because I heard him through the baby monitor yelling, “Mama, mama, mama.” I listened for a minute, but didn’t hear any coughing.
I hoped that maybe he’d go back to sleep, but he kept calling my name over and over, so I got out of bed and walked upstairs. Standing by his room I didn’t hear anything. I waited. Nothing. I thought maybe I had waited him out and he had gone back to sleep, so I turned and walked back downstairs to my room.
Just as I was getting back into bed, I heard him calling again. I stopped mid-stride. How strange! I started to head back upstairs, when through the baby monitor I heard a lady’s voice saying, “It’s okay, I’ll rock you for just a minute.”
