40 days and 40 nights.......

We are now at Levine Children's Hospital! It was bittersweet leaving the hospital. As you can see from my title, we were in the PICU at CMC Northeast for 40 days. We had so many awesome people there working with Aidan. Everyone was so great to us, we're going to miss seeing them and I know that they will miss Aidan. We will definitely go back to visit (JUST visit).

Today has been a good day, but it's been stressful on me. Aidan actually settled in well to his room. He's sleeping right now. We've met with the doctor and the nurses, but have yet to meet the actual therapists, although I'm sure we'll meet them either later today or tomorrow when they come to do their assessments.

Right now, I don't have much to tell. I got an email from Teresa, Samuel's mom (www.samuelsmiracle.com). I was actually going to email her once I got finished reading Samuel's story, but she beat me to it. She stressed the importance of getting Aidan started on hyperbaric oxygen therapy. I completely agree and hope that we can talk with the physiatrist about it since Dr. Corbier suggested it too.

We will be able to post more later, but I just wanted to let everyone know that we're settled in here now. Evan is with my aunt Regina (aka, the "baby hog"), but he will be able to come up here to see Aidan and we can possibly include him in some of the play therapy sessions.

That's all for now. I'm amazed that we are at this point... I would still rather go back and make it all go away and go back to our normal life, but God has other plans for us. Please continue to keep Aidan in your prayers. We love you all!
