James Watkins

James was born six weeks early weighting in at 4 lbs 14 oz. At two weeks old he quit breathing and turned blue he was inpatient in the hospital for two weeks and they said he had reflux. He was at home for two more weeks and returned back because he had a virus was in for a week this is how his first year went. They did test and was never able to give a reason why. We have gone to doctors of all sorts and started going to a allergy and asthma doctor who said he had severe allergies to food, trees, and has really bad asthma. He has begun taking several medicines and continues to see the doctor every two weeks. He is such a fighter i have heard of adults having asthma but never a young child. I never realized that asthma could killed my child…

My Journal


We have had a very busy few months. I finished my semester and started summer courses in hopes that I will graduate in December but if I do not pass a major test I will have to wait until may to graduate I was very disappointed at first but there is always a reason things happen! James graduated 5th grade and will move on to middle school. I believe this will be a huge transition for him and I hope he does well but if not we are considering homeschooling him. Medically we are at a stand still. We travel back to cincinnati in june. He also has a few local appointments in June also. He is still having seizures but we are hoping that a change in medicine will help those to calm down. So far he is enjoying his summer. Next week he will participate in special olympics…
