This is Erin. I just want to thank everyone for their prayers, love and support. I don't think I'll ever be able to express to anyone just how much it means to me.
With that said, I wanted to provide an update since we got to speak with the neurologist this evening. He told us what we already knew from Dr. Black about Aidan's brain stem and mid-brain being normal. He also explained the areas that showed hypoxia and said that they did not look severe, and are reversible. He also said that his initial response to the MRI was that Aidan WAS NOT in the water as long as we thought. This is all wonderful news as I'm sure you all know.
While Dr. Corbier was in here with us, I was holding Aidan's hand and he started trying to cough. He began raising his hand/arm, moved his head some and started blinking and trying to open his eyes. It was amazing to see and made me break down. This whole time I have been praying for my baby to come back to me, but I'm still scared that he will be different.
Aidan is a strong little boy and he proved that to me today. He is a trooper and I can not wait until he can drive me nuts again. I miss his hugs and his kisses and all of the little things he does. I wish that you all could know just how wonderful he is. You would all be wrapped around his finger.
Tomorrow is Aidan's 2nd birthday. When he gets out of this place and is able to come home we are going to have a belated birthday/welcome home party for him.
Thank you again, for all of the prayers. I've never been a really religious person, but this has definitely renewed my faith in God and the good in people in general. All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you.
