Recess

We have snow ❄ and yes it is hard for his powerchair to maneuver especially because it is very un-level. So Brayden’s therapists brought in a sled for him to be able to play with his class at recess! He loves it and has a great time going out even if it’s for 5 or 10 min. It is a way to include him with his class in this wonderful cold season.

My heart is so thankful for the team he has at school! They always try to improve or think out of the box with Brayden. And yes I have to praise Brayden for rolling with all these ideas, the ones that work and the ones that do not. He is such a trooper!

Breathing at night

He is sound asleep using his new Trilogy machine. This will ensure Brayden will be taking full breaths at night due to his sleep apnea. SMA is gradually starting to take from Brayden what comes naturally to all of us. We are blessed that there is equipment available for him to use. It’s one of the latest and greatest machines of its type and I am sure in just a few short weeks we will be pros at knowing everything about it! Here’s to hoping to sleep through the night someday!

Thankful for my life!

Brayden’s school was able to send feathers home for children to decorate.  Each class is a different color and Brayden’s class had blue. His thankful feather is on the bottom left side. He is able to drive by it every day and I am certain that it puts a smile on his already happy face. I just love that he has the care and attention in a general education setting like he does! I miss him during the day but live that he is able to get out an be with kiddos his age 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

Brayden has started 4 year Pre-school

20140909_083052I could not be any happier for this bight eyed boy who is so social to begin his year with his new class. He has such a supportive team behind him encouraging him to be his best. Right now his Teacher Mrs. McGee is phenomenal at making education fun and interesting as is his teachers assistant Miss Dawn! He has a new one on one health aide this year Miss Denise. She is great at learning Brayden’s needs and addressing them so he can participate with the rest of the class and do what they are all doing. He has the same PT, OT, and SLP from last year witch I am thrilled because they are great at keeping up with his care and are well trained in how to make this the best year for him. I am so nervous with all the sickness going around but know that we can handle what comes our way. The kids are always washing hands so Brayden’s hands get washed often! I pray all the time that he doesn’t contact anything from school and am hoping that he has been exposed to enough that his immunity has been built up.

20140915_092135Here he is in his stander at school. He is getting so tall and his favorite thing to do is play with the Legos at school. He is riding the bus now too! He has a great transportation team; Driver Miss Kristy, and aide Miss Carrie. He is so happy to ride the bus with his brother and all the other kids at school. When Friday comes (no school) he is sad that he doesn’t have school and brother does. It is hard to know that he will be in Kindergarten next year and will be 5 years old. These first 4 years have been quite the unexpected journey but I have one of the greatest gifts you can ask for! To top it off he is such a happy guy! Love you Brayden, to the end of the earth ❤

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

We are having a wonderful start to the Holidays! Brayden has been in Preschool and has not missed one day! Yay!!! I think that a great aid to that was his T & A surgery earlier this year. He has had some secretions but that is about it. Brayden has had three cases of pnemoia in the past and we do everything to avoid him getting it again.
We had a great meeting with Santa as you can see and have a new addition this year with our Elf on a Shelf – ‘Dash’! Brayden is loving the snow! He would love to play all day outside! His wheels have a hard time gripping the snow but he manages to drive right through. We hope you all are having a blessed holiday and safe travels if you are out and about!
