Monday Again

Kaden and Brayson - growing

Brayson's one month picture

I wanted to upload some pictures from two weeks ago but blogger is not letting me right now so it will have to wait.

Brayson is holding in there. I took him into the doctor today to have them listen to his lungs. When we went to Iowa City the first time they told us that he had pneumonia and then later came back and said that it was a collapsed lung. I asked about it last week and they were not concerned about it at the ENT, but I was. So, I took him in this morning and had a long talk with the doctor here. He said that everything sounded good and gave me some signs to look for to know when Brayson was struggling with breathing from a lung standpoint (very helpful information). He was also able to give a lot of advise as to what we should expect and was reassuring about his situation and healing.

We are still taking one day at a time and his breathing goes from good to bad in a matter of days. But for now the meds seem to be helping and we are going to avoid surgery as long as we can to see if his body will "grow out of" this complication. On good days it is easy to wait it out - on the bad days I cry as much as he does and just want it fixed now.

We thank God for the good days and for looking after Brayson and keeping him healthy. Thanks to all of you for the prayers and calls of concern. We will go back on Wednesday and see what they have to say this time. I hope to have more pictures soon (if blogger will let me)

We are praying for Brayson! I'm glad that his lungs are doing good and I hope his appointment in Iowa City tomorrow goes well!
