First things first,


HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY AWESOME TEACHER KELLY!!!! SHE HAS BEEN MY TEACHER SINCE 3RD GRADE AND SHE IS A SUCH A SMART, NICE AND FUN TEACHER!!! PLEASE HELP ME WISH MY TEACHER A HAPPY BIRTHDAY!




Well, change of plans, my mom found out today that Justin Timberlake and all the celebrities are ONLY golfing Wednesday and we had everything set for Friday. (my dad, Matt and my best friend Jake all took the day off of work to go) Oh Well! My mom said she would find something else for us to go do. I mean come on we live in Las Vegas there has to be SOMETHING going on! Movies, dolphin habitat, Batman Live......I will keep everyone posted.

 


I had a good day today, Allie seemed like maybe she was getting sick last week but my mom worked hard on her, gave her extra breathing treatments,* percussions* and kept cleaning out her nose with saline and she had a great weekend and seems fine now. Mom said it must be allergies.

*treatments= medicine that is inhaled into the lungs to open them and loosen the mucus build up. Albuterol, Xopenex, Pulmacort)

*percussions= we have a machine that is like a air compressor that shakes your chest to loosen up any mucus that builds up and can cause sickness or pneumonia. we wear a vest or a wrap around our chest and hook the percussor hose to that, it blows up the vest and then shakes it really fast. It shakes quick and fast with short bursts of air so it moves the inside of us but it doesn't shake our body around.
