Birthday Bash Recap

Well this weekend was a lot of fun. Mommy's best friend from college flew in for Braden's birthday, and so did Nana and Grandpa Wilson!! Saturday was filled with lots of fun and celebration at the Seize the Day Walk for Epilepsy and a celebration of our special little boy's THIRD BIRTHDAY!!

We took out Baby Bee's team dressed in bumblebee visors and wearing bumblebee pins as we took our "fun walk". Then it was to the race tent city with free drinks and jambalaya, recognition of all who walked with epilepsy, and a memory balloon release for a recent epilepsy family loss. Then it was off to Mike the Tiger's habitat for some bbq, bumblebee cupcakes, and fellowship and friendship. We were joined by MANY friends, including the only other local family we know with a child with Leigh's... six-year-old survivor Julianna and her baby brother Stephen and parents Stephanie & Glen. Mommy and daddy were so busy socializing - I think they forgot to take pictures at the actual birthday party! Oops. But daddy did put together a great montage from the walk and the day on youtube... the link is:

THANK YOU to everyone who came out to support Braden, who sent cards or gifts or medical fund donations - we so appreciate everything you do for us!!

One last thing... I think we've decided that from now on we will ALSO be celebrating half birthday's, since we don't know just how many more God will choose to bless us with. So we might actually be starting an annual fundraiser just for Braden around that time in late October.

Enjoy the pics from the birthday bash... please take note that little Jackson didn't pull his hat off just for Braden!
Braden, Kodi, & Brad

All's well...

Thank you to everyone that has sent emails and text messages about checking in our boy. The docs were all smiles after his procedure.

Kodi hasn't been able to post because she is having "technical difficulty" aka her lap top went to heaven and she erased her account on here in the process. Any way, we'll get her back up and running in no time.

We are getting ready for the big weekend. B's party, the walk, nana/papa in town, auntie nic in town, and perhaps during all this we will find time to rest.

We will have plenty to share next week.

Headed in for small surgery in the am

We are just asking for extra prayers for the bronchoscope tomorrow morning. It should be routine, but you know our Braden. Anethesia has not always been our friend, and it's not good for Leigh's patients either. And there is a slight possibility we will have problems with the mediport again.

Just send up your prayers on his behalf, we thank you and will update you tomorrow afternoon as soon as we are able.

Brad, Kodi & Braden
