Good News...

Hey everyone thanks so much for all of your prayers and support. We got news today that the doctors want to send Bryson home with Oxygen. The Lord has provided for us in so many ways through healing bryson, food for us, and just peace. Now we still pray for healing because obviously he is still requiring oxygen so he still needs a little help. They feel as though he started out with a virus way down in his lungs that created too much mucas which in return caused the bad asthma attack. So now we just will go home keep a very close eye on him and give him oxygen when he sleeps. We have prayed for peace while we are at home because it will still keep us on edge and we will not just be focusing on bryson, bailee and bella will be back in the picture. So please continue your prayers and that the Lord will continue to provide for us as he has so well already. Now I can try to start getting excited about Christmas and get my shopping done. I will keep everyone posted when I can. Thanks again to all of my friends and family who are supporting us.

ruff day...

WEll I wish i had better news for today. Bryson did so well yesterday and last night and then this morning he started dropping in his oxygen stats again and it actually got pretty scary at one point his numbers were getting a little lower than normally when he would drop. So once again we were back on oxygen and having to do the suction again. My little guy was so brave though he did not want to do it at first but then said ok guys you can do it. Bryson has such a sweet spirit about him right now. Now the bad thing is his lungs sound great there is no wheezing, so the doctors do not know why he keeps doing this. The doctor told us this morning that if he had a good day today we could go home this afternoon, well we didnt after all that. SO I know all of you guys are praying but please continue because at this point im not sure how much more of this i can handle it is so hard to see your child having to go through this, we have so many people praying for him and I know that the Lord WILL HEAL bryson but I just need patience, while we wait on the Lord to heal him. I will hopefully be able to post good news tommorrow. Thanks guys for your prayer support.

Hey guys thanks for all the prayers. Bryson had a very ruff day yesterday (tues). He had to have a tube ran down his nose to his lungs to suck all the mucas out to try and get him better. It took 4 of us to hold him down it was terrible. Today he has had a good day. We have had him up a lot and he even was wanting to run when bailee and bella were here. I have been missing the girls sooo bad so my mom brought them out last night and today. If bryson continues on this path hopefully we will be home this weekend. I will keep you updated as I can the computer in our room is not working right, we need a new keyboard. Thanks again for the prayers and support.

We need prayers......

Hey guys just wanted to let everyone know what has been going on. Last thursday night bryson needed breathing treatments every 3-4 hours and friday morning he was still not breathing well so i took him to the doc thinking we would go in do a breathing treatment get some steroids, and go home. Well after 4 treatments he did not respond so they advised me that he needed to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance because he was requiring oxygen. So they told me it wasnt that it was life threatning but just he could still be on oxygen if we went in an ambulance. So off we go when we get to the ER they started him on an hour long breathing treatment, after that he was some better but still needed oxygen so they told me they will observe him for a few hours and then go from there. At 3:00 they told me they were going to admit him but the pediatrition told me he looked better and that we would go home saturday. Well after David got to the ER I Left to go home to get some cloths and I needed a break from the ER but while I was gone he got worse, they ended up putting in an IV and did some pretty heavy meds thru his IV. When I got back they were concerned how his breathing was again and decided to send us to ICU so off we went and he was on a continuous breathing treatment of albuterol for 12 hours plus oxygen.

So needless to say we were not going home on saturday. Around 12:00 noon they took Bryson off both the albuterol treatment and the oxygen and he did well for 12 hours and then down he went again. We had gotten moved to a regular room saturday night because of his progress. But since he went down and needed oxygen again we were not going to be leaving on sunday as well. Now the bad side effects of the heavy heavy doses of steroids caused really bad night terrors. at one point we thought bryson had lost his vision because he said he could not see me which for us was so scary but it was just that he was not awake. Saturday night he continued to have night terrors and it was really hard on David and I. I was a little unsure of how much more I could take. I just sat there wheeping and asking the Lord to please step in and heal bryson. Well today is monday and I am typing all of this from the computer in our hospital room. Bryson has done well but then he goes down in his O2 levels and he stil is requiring oxygen, so we are now at a point to where we are not sure as to when we are going home. They have started him on antibiotics as if he has phnemonia as well as this real bad asthma attack. We have to work on geting his lung clear and then get him off oxygen and he has to be off of oxygen at least 12 hours before they will let him go home. Our doctor told us tonight that she plans on us getting out of here before Christmas. I thought wow that seems like we might be here for a while but then I was reminded that Christmas is almost a week away. Wow!! So if you guys would just please keep us in yur prayers because we still are not out of the woods we may be here the rest of the week we just dont know at this point. I will try and keep you posted as to how he progresses. Please keep us in your prayers.

Our Weekend

Here it goes Friday night we went to the Christmas Parade downtown, now I know you are thinking it was super cold that night, well it was but we got in a parking lot where we could sit in the car and watch it, the kids still had just as much fun. I got some photo's and a little bit of video of TSU's band I was going to put it on here but you cant see anything it was too dark.

Saturday my washer started acting up I have to stay with it while its running bc it wont spin the cloths so I have to lift them up and rearrange then it does fine. Saturday night we had the 1st of many Christmas parties to attend, the kids had fun even though it was not a kids Christmas party and they behaved that was a plus since we were with all the deacons of the church.

Sunday we had the official merger vote for the two churches of course the vote went through and we are now official Faith Baptist Church. Yeah!! That night we went to Long Hollow for their Christmas Program because mom and dad are in the choir. There we got to see Hovie, and Sondra and Chelsea. WE had a great time and it was so good to see them, and the program was AWESOME!! In the pictures and video its the kids with the presents that Chelsea got for them for Christmas.

Today I got my very first speeding ticket, I could not believe it. I was rushing to music class with bryson and just did not realize I was going that fast. Mow everyone tells me well you do drive very fast. I have been very lucky in these past 12 years of driving, but I will slow down and I will take the course to keep this off my record. Ok well that is what we have had going on. Just wait till my post after next weekend, next saturday is an impossible schedule im not sure how we will pull it off.

Here they are...

WE went a week ago to have family photo's made and instead of paying another 5 dollars to send smiles by wire I decided to just scan them in to the computer. It was our first family photo since we have had bella. Of course Bella would not smile for anything, I did Bryson's 3rd b-day pics 2 months late and Bella's 1st b-day pics 2 months early. Go figure. :) Anyways I hope you enjoy.

What a great time

Well we have been so busy just like everyone else. Our Thanksgiving Day was a great day we headed up to David's grandparents that morning for breakfast and had a great time with them. After that we headed back down to go to my mom's house where all of my family was. I felt a great need for people who dont have family to be with on Thanksgiving and took a meal to one of our shut ins its one of those things that you think you will be ministering to them but then you end up getting more out of it than them. This lady has a care taker and that is who we ended up going to see because the shut in is a very fragile lady and was asleep when we went, but we got to spend an hour with the caretaker and it was a true blessing to get to talk with this lady she was a very Godly woman and I really learned a lot from her. So after that I went back to my moms to join my family, had lots and lots of good food and dessert. It was a great day all around, busy but great. The good thing is I didnt gain too much weight either. Please pray for me because I only have about a month and a half to get the last 16 pounds off to make my insurance deadline which means I need to loose about 4 pounds a week which is pretty hard to do, but im gonna try. Im so thankful for all of my family, and friends and all that God has blessed me with.
