Woo-Hoo! {48/365}

{Caleb was very proud of the certificate they gave him!}



Caleb got a 109% on his Pulmonary Function Test on Tuesday!!  This is a BIG deal since Caleb has struggled with breathing problems since he was born.  As most of you know, he was born at 28 weeks weighing a mere 1lb. 15oz.  Although he did awesome for his gestational age, his premature lungs put him at risk for asthma and other pulmonary disorders.

At seven months of age, Caleb's battle with asthma began and we  started daily breathing treatments.  We have done them literally everyday for five years now since he is now 5 years and 8 months old!  He has had many, many ups and downs with asthma, but during this past year, God has blessed him with tremendous health.  While he has had several "asthmatic" episodes, they have all been mild and cleared up quickly.  We still continue daily breathing treatments as usual for "preventative maintenance" and one day hope to be free of them.  For now though we are thrilled with the awesome test results. Praise the Lord for healthy lungs!
