Yes it is definately possible. My daughter was in the hospital in October for strider too. She has suffered from croup so many times I lost count (she's only 2 1/2). We have found the best thing so far is it make sure you have a cold air humidifiyer on at all times, don't give them milk before bed, take them outside for a short walk each night and to be as patient as you can with them, the more upset they get, the more they cry, and the harder it is on their throats.
