I know that Russell said he was going to take a break from posting for a few days, so I thought I'd just give you all a little update. There isn't much to tell, though. Since last night, Aidan has been sedated and his vitals look good. He's calm and resting. I was at home most of the day with Evan as he is sick with the flu, pink eye and an ear infection, so I wasn't able to talk to the doctors today. Russell did speak with the neurologist and from what he told me, they are planning to run another MRI in 4-5 days and they are going to do another EEG tomorrow.

I'm praying that everything looks okay tomorrow and that there are no further signs of seizures of damage. I'm worried about the toll of the stress from yesterday on his body, especially his heart and brain. I realize that we had to try to take him off the ventilator to see how he would react to it. I'm just hoping that giving him some more time to heal will allow him to stay off it for good next time without all of the stress on his body.

Other than that, it was a quiet day. He's resting and for now that is okay. Thank you for all the prayers!
