First off, they wanted me to give him a breathing treatment through the nebulizer last night at bedtime. They told me to give him the Combivent. This is the strong medicine that we give him when his asthma is really bad. Then I will need to wake him up today around 6AM so I can feed him a little something. He is not allowed any food after 7:15 AM. Then we will give him his morning meds and another round of Combivent. They are wanting to get his airway open wide so we don't encounter any problems. He can also have clear liquids up to 12:15 and then he will be done.
So she told me that our surgery isn't going to be scheduled until late afternoon and that is with the hopes that there are no hold ups with other surgeries prior to Carson. But it is still a go.
So once they are ready to start they will give him some laughing gas to knock him out. After that they will put the IV in. Then the doctor will scope his lungs and look for any anatomy problems. Then she will take some samples of his lung sac and then she will be done. They will then insert the breathing tube. ENT will put in his ear tubes (yeah, no more ear infections!!!!!), adenoids, and tonsils will be removed. The doctor told me that there is a 75% chance that they will opt to leave his airway in until the anesthesia is worn off. Then they will wean him off the vent. So that about sums up what will be taking place tomorrow.
Please keep Carson in your prayers that this solves his asthma, respiratory, and ear infections. That is the goal for going through all of this.
Then we can get back to a happy childhood and mommy can get back to work!!
I have had several e-mails on phone numbers and such. Children's Mercy # is 816-234-3000. His full name is Carson Johnson. We may not be up in a room any before 7 or later. But phone calls are welcomed. We will be discharged in 1-3 days and then home for 2 weeks. The doctor said she wanted him to be home bound so he doesn't pick up anything. So I will be with him 24/7 by myself. I may end up blogging those days several times a day just to keep myself busy. LOL.
If you need my phone number at home, please e-mail me at Studio213_kc@sbcglobal.net and I will be more than happy to give that to you. Thanks again for all of my calls today and a few of my close buddies that e-mailed me. I love you guys and it is such a great feeling to have such a huge support system.
PS I hope everyone has a great Halloween and get lots of candy so you can pass some to us. The only day that I can get chocolate for free, ....sigh....

Kaden, I hope you enjoy your big boy bed!! Just remember that when Brody gets bigger, he's going to want to sleep in your bed all the time. That's just what little brothers do:-)

So I'm off to taking care of another sick kid. Last week it was Cody and Carson and since last night it is Coltan. I don't think playing in the cold and wind helped any. I didn't know he wasn't feeling well until late last night.
As far as the tournament they played in, the boys ended up finishing 2nd place. The team they played was also from KC and they played us in our regular season and beat us there as well. It was overall a very good tournament. So good job Coltan and Cody!!
Back to making my famous Chicken and Dumplings so my baby feels better.

My contact is literally as far up in my eye as it possible can be. I cannot use my fingers and roll it down through my eye lid and I cannot reach it by pulling my eyelid out and looking straight down. It is killing me. I'm hoping someone has a great suggestion before tomorrow otherwise I'll be calling the eye doctor.

This is my niece Ali. We were playing around in the gift shop at the Arch. This is the best picture I could get for my dad standing outside the arch. It's amazing how many times I would take the picture and some other tourist would walk into my shot.

As far as the previous post, well I've decided that I'm done trying. I reflect back on church last Sunday and basically the moral of the lecture was don't let yourself get so upset over other's actions or words. I cannot change other people nor will I try. So I'm going to move on. If Charlie wants to be a part of that, great. If not, well, then it's his loss. Charlie's daughter can decide in her own time if she wants to be a part of Carson's life but if she doesn't, then that will be fine. He doesn't know her now and so he doesn't realize he is missing a beautiful little girl in his life.
To all of my friends, I'm thankful for each and everyone of you. I had some phone calls, some private e-mails, and some comments on my blog. For those of you who trully know me, you never assumed that I was trying to insult her. You knew that my intentions were out of love and getting a relationship resolved. Most of you had faith in my loyalily to family. That was the best birthday present I could have asked for. I was trying to reach out for advice. Just so you know, most of you said the best thing to do is to sit back and let it ride out. If she wants to be in his life, she will. Best advice. This is why I blog. I love to brag on my three boys but just like every other household, there are problems. So sometimes I will seek out and ask for advice. If you scroll through my blog, you would see that I don't vent very often. But I do have a stressful life like most and I'm just trying to balance everything out. I consider myself a successful business owner, proud mother of three kids, two of which do well in school, I have a lot of great friends, and I'm trying to improve myself with going back to school. So for everyone who has stood beside me, from the bottom of my heart, thanks!!! Your why I love blogging and sharing and jumping on your sites as well!

So maybe I didn't use good choice words. I was simply trying to reach out to what I thought were my friends in the blogging community and maybe look for some advice. I came from a broken home and I do understand the ups and downs of parents. But I think that is why I love her that much more. I saw some of my dad's girlfriend's jealous that he had us on the weekends which was suppose to be time for them. I never tried to come in between Charlie and his daughter. If anything I would fight harder for her.
Believe it or not, I really want nothing more for her and I to have a relationship and I would be tickled pink if she would give us a chance. People can change. I have truly seen that first hand. Charlie and I did argue a lot but we have worked really hard to fix that. Do we still argue? Yes, but not like we used to . I'm just looking for the happy ending and would like for the two in question who feel offended or insulted know that I have done good things for her and I wish they could look past Charlie and I mistakes and move forward with us. I don't know what the future holds for Charlie or I but bottom line is I'm still the mother of his son.
Since my intentions were not to insult the child, I will take that post off of my blog. It wasn't meant to be a bash. I will apologize if that is how some people felt. I'm just looking for an outlet to have some peace between us.
That is my birthday wish!

When we first sat down they were fairly busy and almost immediately there was a train delivering food to another table. Carson spotted it and got real excited.
Really, who is more excited here? This was the same train but Charlie's first time of witnessing it.
Here comes the food!
