Brayden's Journey

Stitches are out!

Can't believe it's been over 2 weeks since Brayden's surgery.  He is healing up great and it has been hard to keep him from running around like doctors orders. 

Brayden turned 4 on the 1st, can't believe he's 4 already.  He was so excited for his birthday this year and loved celebrating with family and friends.  He had a costume birthday party and he dressed up as Spider-man.  He also brought cupcakes to school for his friends and he thought that was pretty fun. 

Last night we took out his stitches.  I was happy he didn't have too many to be removed and we could do it at home.  Geoffrey and Uncle Brandon took them out while I tried to calm Brayden down.  Poor little guy was crying the whole time and I tried to distract him with my phone but he just wanted to watch what they were doing the whole time.  I told him he is such a brave boy and he told me, "Mom I am not brave, I am scared and I am crying the whole time." Ugh hearing that broke my heart.  I told him he was brave because we didn't have to go to the doctor and taking them out at home.  Once he was done, he was a happy boy again and in a great mood.  I am so thankful we started so young with him.  I do wonder how much he will remember of this as he gets older.  I love being his mom and being here for him throughout this whole journey. 

Wednesday we are off to Des Moines to see a GI specialist for his stomach.  I am praying this is nothing serious.  Brayden has been through enough and we don't need another set back.
