Asthma & Mother's Day

We are learning more and more about Braylen having asthma. I had to take him to the doctor on Saturday morning because he woke up feeling horrible! The inhaler helped a little bit but he was just struggling to breathe and didn't want to do anything! The doc told me that his body is zapped of energy because it's working so hard to breathe. Poor thing. They gave us a nebulizer and he has to do a breathing treatment every morning. He's doing pretty good with it. It really does help him. It's like as soon as he is outside he starts coughing or sneezing. I just feel really bad for him. Hopefully as the spring season goes away, so will his symptoms! Another funny part about Saturday-Guy had to go down to Louisville for Amy's graduation ceremony so I was alone when I took Bray to the doc. They gave him that breathing treatment and he was as good as gold. Walking around, saying hi to everyone, eating suckers. He was a new kid. Then I went to Kroger Pharmacy to get his prescriptions and while we were waiting I did some shopping. We were in the produce section and then Braylen threw up. All over himself. Right by the salad bar. GROSS! There were some napkins so I did the best I could. No one saw it either. He started dancing right after. I was like Braylen! hold still! ha.

That's a good story to lead into Mother's Day. I love being mom. Throw up and all. Braylen is such a wonderful blessing. He brings so much joy to our lives. Watching him grow up (he's dancing right now while I type this!) is one of the most amazing experiences. I guess I should be "watching" him instead of blogging. :) Recently every time I tell him that I love him, he says thank you. Wow. You are welcome buddy! You are the sweetest little babe.

Thanks mom for being a great mom too! I certainly wouldn't be who I am today if it wasn't for you and your prayers, patience, kindness, and loving example. I really have a great mom and mother in law too! Braylen sure does love his ma-ma and grammy!

Looking forward to seeing Jess and Vince this weekend! We've been trying to come up with a few things to do! Kings Island, Starlight Bowling, Aquarium, Zoo, Museum.........Maybe we'll just hang out and play games. Or maybe we'll make this delicious dessert.


  1. I hope his asthma gets better - you have one sweet kid! I'm glad you didn't let this put a grey cloud over your Mother's Day!

  2. GIRL! You must try again to get into those books - they are GOOD! Unfortunately you have to get to page 100 or so in the first one to really get into it - let me know if you do!
