Coughing, Wheezing, ER oh my!

As a parent our job is to protect our children at all cost. But how do we protect them from allergy induced acute asthma? How do I protect him from the little invaders blocking his lungs causing an attack. I know asthma is on the far end when it comes to major illnesses, however as a mom I am trying to wrap my hands around it.

Its hard when your little one comes to your bed at 2:30 a.m gasping for air saying,"I can't breathe!" You jump up heart racing in search of his albuterol pump and immediatley begin the rescue meds. After 20 min of home therapy,I could still see his flaring nostrils and stomach sucking in and knew a 3 a.m trip to the ER was necessary.

Upon arrival they were able to stabilize him by giving him oxygen along with two bronchodilators via a nebulizer. This seemed to do the job as his pulse ox went from 90 to 94 a bit of a improvement. As of 10 this morning he is doing much better still wheezing but able to breathe.

At this point, I would give anything not to see my 10 year old suffer when he gets these attacks. Its scary and I can sympathize with anyone going through this. There is no cure for asthma, it can only be controlled.

The Meaning of Jessie

According to Urban Dictionary the name Jessie means "A wonderful person who brings sunshine into people's lives. Being a Jessie is a beautiful thing and a rare quality.

This is so true, I love to make people smile and laugh even with my quirky ways. At the end of the day I know I made someone's day!

First Good Will Find

A couple of weeks ago I decided to go to my local Good will and browse around a bit on my lunch break. I had no idea what I was looking for, I just knew I wanted to buy something to make my house a little nicer because that is what others were blogging about great Goodwill treasures. Anyway, I came across an antique gold metal cute basket. I had not idea what I was gonna use it for, but I really adored the details and for $2.oo I had to have it. So I brought it home and put it on my kitchen counter and while it was a cute accent it looked lonely. So, I decided why not roll up some kitchen towels and keep them handy next to my sink. It was a cute little buy!! Thanks Goodwill...I am sure you will be seeing more of me!!

With love,


Birth of a blog!

I have been deciding for a while as to whether or not I should begin to blog, because I have never been a writer. I write emails, I write grocery list but I am not a writer lol. I am pretty sure I am not the only one with writers block. Its like I know what I want to say, its just never comes out right. So I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try. I want this blog to be about my life and the memories that I can create for my within my home. Just so you know I have been in my house for five years and am embarrassed to say I have lots of unfinished projects I need to tackle. Had it not been for the inspiration of reading blogs, I would not be sitting here writing this! xoxo
