thanks everyone we went to the hospital .. by the time we got there since we had to walk and its a couple blocks away her cough stopped sounding like a seal and more normal she got checked out and its only a virus and should be gone in a couple days YAY

You should see your doctor. A steroid medicine is usually prescribed to help ease the symtoms as anti-biotics will have no effect as it's a viral infection of the voicebox=]Hope she gets better soon!
