We're home!

We just walked in the door, but I wanted to make a quick post to let everyone know that Aidan is doing really well. I will post a few pictures later today or tomorrow. I took some before they took him back to the OR on Thursday morning (the last pictures with a trach) and I'm going to get some of him today without the trach.

I'm so glad to see my baby without a tube sticking out of his neck. When the stoma heals, I'm hoping that we can all go and have a family picture made. We never got to get Aidan's 2nd birthday pictures made.

Thank you again everyone for your constant prayers and endless support. I know that I couldn't have made it this far without them. I have hope that Aidan is going to recover from this. I know it's possible for children to recover from similar accidents... we met a little boy right after Aidan's accident who nearly drowned 2 or 3 years ago and you'd never know that he went home blind and unable to walk or talk. He was "normal" running around playing with his brothers and sisters.

I have hope that Aidan and Evan are going to be playing together one day, and this whole experience will just be a distant nightmare. We'll never understand why this happened, we can only learn from it and love Aidan no matter what his condition.

I'll post the pictures later and keep you all updated. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

That's great news!! Sooooo glad everything went well. Can't wait to see his new pics w/out the trach. I know you all are just thrilled (and probably a little nervous too). Still praying for your family and for Aidan's miracle of complete recovery.

Praise the Lord!!! All things are possible with God! We pray daily for Aidan to be running around with his little bro sooner than you can even imagine. We are so happy to hear the little guy has no trach, and we're praying that he's healing up perfectly from it's removal!
