Day 21 at Home

It's New Years Eve! Today has been great. My family has been home all day. The kids have left me alone so that I could sleep:)
The weather outside has been kind of bad for a few days now. Mom finally broke down and went out in it, to go grocery shopping today. Dad watched the girls and I, while she was gone.
My Oxygen is at 1/4 liter and I am eating better than I have all week.
Mom dressed me in a silly outfit today and took lots of pictures.

Day 20 at Home

Today started out rough, I was not able to keep anything down and I was supper pale.
I am feeling better now.
The Oxygen guy came to our house today and brought a new bottle of oxygen for me:)
My sisters have been very nice to me today and let me sleep a lot more. The past few days have been rough without sleep.

Day 19 at Home

It has been a busy day here at the Johnson house. We started the day by going to the Credit Union and then Mc Donald's. My sisters got to go to the Jump and Bounce place down the street. I stayed home and played with my sister Bre and my cousin Gabe. My grandma Scarlet came over and visited for a little while.

My Oxygen is up to 1/4 liter. Last night I had a lot of self resolving Bradycardia Episodes where my heart slowed down. Mom is not sure if it was because I was so tired or if I am getting sick.
Hopefully tonight will be better.

Day 18 at Home

It has been a very uneventful day. Mom has spent most of the morning on the phone with people about paying my hospital bill. She did a great job, it looks like out of the million and a half that it cost to have me in there and for me to have my operation, Mom will not have to pay any of it.
Mom has been working on the activities that Sue from Head start suggested. I am getting very good at holding my head up.

Today was fun, I stayed home with the girls. They are very noisy and didn't let me sleep very much today. My mom is hoping that I will sleep better tonight.
I got a bunch of new clothes for Christmas, you will have to watch in the days to come to see me wear all of them.
Grandma Scarlet came and watched me and the girls tonight while Mom and Leita went for gas.

Day 13 at Home

Today was a very busy day. Mom took me out to see the Dr (It's my 4 month birthday today) The Dr was nice, but his nurse gave me three big nasty shots.
Audra and Alexis came to my house today to watch my sisters while I was at the Dr's with Mom.
(For those who don't know, Audra is my sister Savannah's first grade teacher)
They also brought Christmas presents:) And they took the girls to Arctic Circle while I was at the Dr's.
I spent most of the day at 1/16 liters of oxygen.

Day 11 at Home

I got to spend the day at grandma Scarlet’s today. She wasn’t home but she has a fax machine and mom needed to send a bunch of faxes to people.
I am feeling great today. I slept 5 hours straight last night. Mom was holding me the whole time.
I am down to 1/8 liter and holding. Mom tried a room air trial, I dropped down to 60% blood oxygen level and she had to turn my oxygen back on.
Dad has been working 6 days a week to try and pay the bills so that Mom can stay home and take care of me for now.
I hope he knows how much we appreciate him doing that.

I got up early this morning. (1:00 am)
