I Need Oxygen to Breathe

Despite our best efforts TEAGAN IS SICK, and requiring full time oxygen to keep his stats up. I called cardiology today and they said it's ok to need 2 liters or so, these kids have no reserve. I am so sorry for the Gledhill's loss, we felt incredible close to Gracie and I had the chance to visit her and Michele right before she got her heart, it was a special time to talk with her and see Gracie it is all way to close to home, but I really haven't even had a chance to morn her passing yet; due to my added anxiety for Teagan. I really have tried so hard to keep this from happening and it kills me that he is sick. We are back at my Mom's and we are both running on very little sleep due to the oxygen dance we had last night, to the point where I had to call home health at 5am to get oxygen ASAP. Ryan had to come out at 6 to bring our big tank that I knew was almost empty, that was all we had. Long story short we need some extra prayers that T can fight this and get back to himself real soon, especially with his b-day next week. Please pray the rest of us won't get it and we can stay well the rest of the season.
We love you Gledhill's, may you feel the peace our saviors love brings, I know you would give anything to stay up all night with Gracie, that's what I had to keep telling myself and that's what I'm running on today. Thanks for your example and your friendship!

Get better Teagan!! Poor guy. It would be aweful to have to start on Oxygen after not having it so long. Owen has it 24/7 and he's just used to it.

We're praying for you buddy!

Well, we all know that this sickness did not happen because of lack of effort! You are the Germ Police.

I will continue to pray for Teagan and the Gledhills.

I know that you are probably SUPER busy with everything right now, so PLEASE call me if you need help with anything. I still live really close to your mom and can be over in a jiffy!

Oh, and part of me feels bad for Ryan that he had to be abandoned. Get well soon Ryan!

Oh I'm so sorry. You guys have been trying so hard to stay healthy. We will send prayers your direction for T.

I'm also sorry to hear about Gracie.

That sucks that after all your efforts he still got sick. I hope that he gets better quickly. Did you know that you can have your doc write an order for Home Health to give you a suction machine? I know that you know how to use one, and it might help him to be able to breathe better if he's suctioned regularly. I'm thinking about you and praying for you. Are you going to Gracie's services on Saturday? If so, then I hope to see you there.
Love you guys and get better soon Teagan! You can't be sick on your birthday big boy!
Hugs,
Hollie, Ben and Elaina
