Let me push

Carter and Luke are fantastic big brothers to Brayden. For 99% of the time they do not complain or even whine about all the things that have to be done for Brayden.

Yesterday was a great day for them.

I was loading Brayden in the bath. I told Carter and Luke they could watch TV until I was done with Brayden's bath. Luke did not watch TV. Instead he came in the bathroom with his sleeves rolled up with a plastic cup to help with Brayden's bath. I asked him if he wanted to watch TV and he said he would after he gave Brayden his bath. As I was dressing Brayden, Luke selected a CD he thought Brayden would like and turned on the music.

After that we loaded the car for an adventure filled morning of driving an hour to the hospital just to pick up Brayden's brain MRI so the neurogenetic clinic could review it further (the MRI was done at another hospital instead of Children's). Not once did they complain about their day off from school being spent in the car for Brayden. We got to the hospital and they took turns pushing Brayden because, according to them, he likes it better when they push him.
We picked up the MRI, they asked to go to the cafeteria because this hospital had a good one. But I surprised them with some Halloween candy in the car for being such great helpers. We loaded the car and drove home, another hour in the car...without complaint.
