Merry Christmas!!!

I hope you all have the most wonderful Christmas!!! I know this year will be extra special for us. On Friday we had quite the scare with KJ. He was struggling in the breathing department. We thought it was his asthma which only flares up when he is sick which he was not, but all his meds weren't working. We ended up in the emergency room where in the end it was Stridor Croup. The odd thing is he wasn't sick before hand which normally leads to croup and he is passed the marked age of children who get it. Normally it's found in babies. He received a heavy dose of steroids and another breathing treatment that reduces the swelling in the throat. We stayed a few hours to make sure it didn't try to reclose. I must say that day I was a bit numb and just went through the motions and by Saturday I was a wreck. Who knows what would have happened if I just tried to wait out the asthma with his regular treatments. Now he is completely fine and quite tired of me asking him how he feels.

Of course, our favorite reason for Christmas and who was completely my strength on that Friday...

The brilliant calligraphy was drawn out by my talented friend Haley, a local calligrapher, and I painted it in. Will post more about it next week!

Merry Christmas!!!
