    I have one question, how did they use the vaporizer? with no electricity. Great idea on your part to go out and get on but I’m confused. My daughter had the croup when she was three yrs. old. I was up for days. Running a very hot shower and letting the bathroom fill with steam also helps. Hope all is going well there. – Judy

    The vaporizer was probably run on a generator or battery.

    Hey Erik,
    Gosh your blog brings back memories of that 1999 summer on the border of Ohio and PA. I’m looking forward to catching up when you return to Raleigh.

    FYI, Erin uses some really awesome essential oils that help with everything from colds, to scratches, to coughs, to tooth aches. Spencer had croup and she used something that helped a ton. Our kids are always getting some of her “Dr. Mom” treatments. You can also put the oils in a diffuser (like a vaporizer). We use them for everything. My 2 year old attempted to draw us a nice picture on the carpet…using a “Sharpie” marker! We used the pure lemon oil and it was gone:) May be helpful on the farm…who knows.

    See you soon,

    Neal

    Judy, good question, Katie is right. The diesel generator ran all night last night, and the vaporizer was powered using a 110 converter.

    Neal thanks for sharing that–and looking forward to catching up as well. I am curious about those oils! I think something like that was in play as well, there are so many home remedies flying about over here that I have trouble keeping it all straight (:

    Whooping cough (pertussis) went through the Mennonite/Amish communities here in Christian Co., KY, several years ago. One neighbor lady coughed so hard that she broke several ribs. “English” folks are generally immunized against the disease — pertussis is the P in a DPT shot.
