At the age of 2 Years old Amanda was Hospitalized 
with Pneumonia, it was at this time that we were told 
that she was a borderline asthmatic and that she would 
out grow it.  Over the next 8.5 years she had about 6 
bouts where she needed to use a nebulizer.  Usually 
when she would bring a cold home from school.  She 
had not had an episodes in almost a year, it was 
in the fall of 2003 that her & her brother were diagnosted 
with Strep Throat and she ended up needing her nebulizer.

If your child or anyone you know has Asthma take it very 
serious and learn all that you can.  Not always will you get 
time to see any of the symptoms.  With Amanda she was very 
excited as she had just started middle School and met new 
friends.  She kept telling us how she could not wait for 
tomorrow so that she could get back to Horizon Middle School 
and her new classes & friends.  She did not have any of the 
normal symptoms that an Asthma Attack was coming on.
My wife & I put her to bed at around 9:00pm and gave
her Hugs, Kisses and told her how much we loved her.
We also wished her happy dreams and that we would see her 
in the morning.  At about 9:45pm my wife and I got ready 
to go to bed and we checked on both children.  Our son
was sound asleep in his bed but we could not find Amanda
in her bed.  I found her on the far side of her bed face down.
She had gotten out of bed and straighted her sheets and 
it appears she was going after her Inhaler (about 4 steps 
from her bed) and never made it.  The Muscles around her Lungs 
constricted and forced the air out and she collapes and never 
could get air.  There was not a sound from her to warn us 
that she was in trouble.  

Please follow the URLs below to learn as much as you can
about Asthma.  As I find more information I will continue 
to add it.  God Bless and stay healthy.

Asthma Walk

The American Lung Association®, can give you close to 20 million reasons why we need to "Blow the Whistle on Asthma" and how you can help fight the asthma epidemic. Close to 20 million Americans currently have asthma. You probably know someone who suffers from this chronic disease. It could be a family member, a young child, a co-worker, a neighbor or maybe even you. Asthma isn't always obvious; you can't always tell an Asthma sufferer from looking at them. Though you cannot always see asthma, you can see and count its devastating effects. Asthma is responsible for over 14 million lost school days in children. Even more frightening is the fact that asthma can be fatal; over 4,000 deaths are attributed to asthma annually. The economic cost of asthma is unbelievable - over $16.1 billion dollars is spent annually. Asthma Walk is a nation wide effort to bring attention to this devastating chronic illness. We know a lot about asthma, but there is so much we don't know. Your participation will raise the funds necessary to provide education and research so we can better control asthma and soon find a cure.

Encouraging Word:

Saturday 12/31/2005

Live a life filled with love for others, following the example of Christ, who loved you and gave himself as a sacrifice to take away your sins. And God was pleased, because that sacrifice was like sweet perfume to him.
Ephesians 5:2, NLT
