Prayers Please

I know I haven't blogged in FOREVER but things have been hard. We are in the hospital, for almost a week now. One week after tomorrow. Braedon came down with a cold and it turned into something unmanagable with his allergies and asthma. We headed to the ER last Tuesday night after he had been vomitting and refusing to eat/drink for three days. High fever, they think just because he was so overrun. They admitted him becuase his oxygen levels were so low. He has been on it almost all week until Friday night when he had a wonderful night. We thought yesterday he was going home, got discharged, packed and were awaiting discharge instructions. All of a sudden his O2 dropped again and had to be put back on. We weren't going home.
Today we are sitting here waiting patiently and honestly I am really being patient. I am ok with whatever God has in store for us and don't want to leave in haste. He is still on some oxygen and I don't mind taking him home on it. I am worried about why he is on it if his lungs are clear and his heart rate is dropping too and they aren't sure what's causing that.
I guess we wll find out sooner or later. Please pray that our doctor today takes the initiative to run some tests to figure things out. Please pray that Braedon's asthma gets under control and we can go home to be a family this week. It's been really hard on Caileigh not being able to have her parents both home and she really misses her brother.


  1. Christy, I am so sorry that you are having to go through this! It's so hard seeing your child sick and not know why. I will continue to pray for your son, you and your entire family. I know how hard this can be! Continue to find your strength in Him! He is the only one that can sustain you and heal your son! God is good!!
