Christian's Hospital Stay

On March 7, 2014 we noticed Christian wasn't feeling well. He slept a lot that day, and just didn't seem like his usual self. That night at around 9:30 p.m. Curtis took Christian to Redi-Care because we felt like it would be a long night if we didn't get the little guy some help. We found out he had a double ear infection so they prescribed some numbing ear drops and amoxicillin. That night was better than we thought. He slept all through the night, but the next day he was especially whiney and clingy. We soon noticed that he was having a really hard time breathing. He was really struggling for air and kept crying. I took him back to Redi-Care where they gave him a breathing treatment and steroids because his oxygen level was 82 when it was supposed to be 95 or above. That didn't help so they sent us to the ER. While in the ER they took x-rays of his lungs and they looked good. They gave him oxygen and an IV. He didn't like either of those so much. They told us we had to stay the night. Curtis stayed the night with him at the hospital so I could stay home with the three other boys. Curtis held Christian the whole night. Christian didn't feel well, plus he didn't like being in a different environment. Christian slept about five hours that night...not too bad. His breathing improved and he was sent home the next day. He was diagnosed with bronchiolitis/coronavirus. We were told to keep him away from Creighton...that has been kind of tough to do. We just hope no one else in the family gets sick! A day after he got home from the hospital, Christian turned 18 months old! We sure love that little guy to the moon and back! :)

Creighton's Blessing

Creighton Thomas was blessed by his dad on Sunday, March 2, 2014. He wore the same outfit as Christian. He was good during the blessing and didn't cry at all. His blessing was a very nice one. We had family come and then after church, we had a meal at our home. It was a great day!

Creighton's special day.

My nieces Ashlyn and Hailey came to the blessing. They drove all the way from Provo, UT. They are attending BYU. It was so good to chat with them! They are beautiful girls on the inside and outside!
