Sarah, today I visited caringbridge for another family. It had been awhile since visiting this site but once there, Aidan immediately came to mind, so I typed in his name. A house, Jeff's PhD, two cats, and most of all Aidan doing well. I am so very happy for you. Please enjoy being mom to that wonderful boy of yours!!!


Wow. My heart goes out to you and your family--that is a lot to deal with. Thank God he is doing so much better. I'm living with a lot of fear myself these days so it is encouraging to hear that things do change.
Happy New Year!


Thanks for the update, it is good to take time out from the day to realize how fortunate we are. As for how it will affect the future Aidan, the old saw 'that which doesn't kill you only makes you stronger' is trebly true for children. It not only teaches them about overcoming adversity, but gives them a much more realistic and optimistic perspective on what true adversity is (something few of our very indulged children are blessed with). I have two friends who experienced protracted life-threatening battles as children. Both of them are among the most easy going and well-centered people I know.

May Aiden be equally blessed!

You know, Jeff and I wonder how this will change him as a human. We try hard to not focus on his health and make him feel normal. Some things are obviously different for him but we don't want him to stick out around his peers. It is just a small part of who he is. However, I think he is a bit tougher than he might have been without this problem. He is definitely a zany, inquisitive, sweet yet sassy, funny, smart boy.


Wow, thanks so much for sharing. I am so glad to hear how he came through so well! It's interesting and hard to hear how the surgery has effected him emotionally. I think so often people forget about that part, that these tiny people carry that with them too...
