Braden is 8 yrs old:) He is the most Loving, caring, giving, sweet kiddo! He has been so strong through all of this his/our journey! We are finishing up treatment after a very long 3.5 yrs! He always took each appt – Hospital visit- very long 10 day isolation stays with a smile! He has a compromised immune system from treatments and gets monthly IVIG Transfusions! In the beginning we went to the doctors the hospital 4 times – Memorial Hospital actually told me my son was lying about the leg pain! He always wanted to play so he would actually say nothing was ever wrong! So I knew when he complained of the leg pain it must be pretty bad! I brought him in many times! Not once did anyone take Blood! I am very happy finally- Dr Rapper at the emergency clinic in falcon is the one to finally request! I was in Jamaica (on down season) first trip without them- to celebrate our anniversary (we went as a group friends adults only) it was 1000 for air food and drinks do cheap couldn’t pass up! It was the worst decision ever! As the worst news you want to ever hear and I was so far away! I couldn’t walk run drive swim nothing to get home to my baby! It was off season so no flights till the next day and at that took the longest to get to Colorado! I have felt so guilty! I couldn’t imagine how he felt or what he was thinking at that moment- I am afraid to ask! To this day! So I have not missed anything we have been together since! I don’t go anywhere or do anything! I want to be right by his side in case he needs me! I never before did anything either I knew my relationship needed it with my husband my children’s dad! We were always together!
He could not go to school so we have homeschooled and now at Falcon Virtual- they are truly amazing!! Started with Jodi Fletcher and now his Classroom Teacher is Britney! They now are so supportive encouraging! He will start going to school 2 days a week soon!
He is amazing at math! Loves nerf guns and RC cars! We love to go camping and Four Wheeling! He has always been the one to befriend someone in need or different! He will always be so kind and loving!! Give a helping hand! We as a family always have been givers! Never received! The nurses are amazing – I would not of made it without Braden or them! So thankful! Groups like these are amazing!
We have been in a bubble for 3.5 yrs! I don’t really know what to do now!
