"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Hospital food YUCK!






This past week we spent at the hospital from Monday night to Friday night. Last Saturday night at about 2:00 a.m. trevor woke up with a temperature of 103.1. Around 11:00 the next morning it was 104.0. We went ot urgent care because it was Sunday. They there found out her was breathing really roughly. They gave him a breathing treatment and said to call his doctor Monday morning. So monday somes and he still has a temperature of 103.1. So I finally get him into the doctor and they do two more breathing treatments. They didn't seem to work really well. He said that trevor was having an asthma attack. We have thought he had asthma but he's still so little that it wasn't for sure. (now it is). the doctor was concerned because he shouldn't have such a high fever from breathing hard. So he said we needed to go to the hospital. Once there they did a chest x-ray and found out that he has pnemonia also. Which caused the fever. So all week he has been on antibiotics and was given a breathing treatment every 4 hours. He had an I.V. also that he wanted out real bad. He was such a good boy the whole time. In a way I'm thankful for the temperature because I thought he just had a bad cough and it would pass. Little did I know he was having an attack. We are all home now and are good. The Doctor gave us a machine to give Trevor treatments here at home as needed. We are happy to be back to our normal life.

That sucks that you had to stay at the hospital for so long! I'm glad that things are back to normal!!

Was there a dog at the hospital?

Jen.... Yes the dog was a volunteer that would come and visit people to brighten your day. Trevor was so happy and had such a big smile when he saw the dog. It was cute

I totally know how you feel! Daylen had pneumonia when he was 9 months old and it was so hard to see him go through that. He too has a breathing machine and every time now that he gets sick we have to give him breathing reatments, he is asthmatic now but is growing out of it.

Hey! You're kids are so cute! I have two similar nights in the hospital...my first stayed the night for breathing treatment for croupe and the second for pnemonia. Both under 18 months old when it happened! It was no fun. I'm glad he made it through!!

I am sorry you have had such a horrible week. Poor little guy. You know Tasha, Brent and my husband all have asthma. It isn't fun but they all do pretty well. Good luck and we are thinking about you!
