Small update

Well actually there isn't an update. Which is great! Aidan is still critically stable and fighting very very hard for his life. His levels are all staying about the same with minor fluctuations. I've changed a few diapers and I almost got peed on today. I opened up the diaper right at the end of a pee. I'm getting better at it and when he gets home I'll be a pro since I won't have wires to worry about. The nurses have been fantastic in helping me make all of these wonderful memories. Chris hasn't changed a diaper yet, but I think that will be coming soon. He has though, been putting lotion on Aidan and tonight he got to wipe down his eyes and nose.

This afternoon when we were doing hands on time they took off Aidan's awesome shades (I wrote Go Colts on them!) he was looking around. His eyes can't focus, but he would look in the direction of either Chris or I talking. We are so proud of him for being such a fighter! If he doesn't like something that the nurses are doing he lets them know! He is still active even though he is on a constant drip of pain medicine. The medicine is more to sedate him than him being in pain. Since he does wiggle so much they want him sedated to be able to relax and fight.

Ok well I meant for this to be small because I have to go to sleep, but it's hard for me to stop once I start talking about my little man. My mom and I are staying at a hotel tonight right across from the hospital because I couldn't go home. I didn't want to risk getting stranded at home if he needed me. My room faces the hospital which is what I saw when I would look out the windows going to visit Aidan. I miss him so much and I can't wait for tomorrow when I go back and snuggle on him again.

Everyone keeps asking if I need anything and honestly we need the prayers to continue. We can buy anything that we should need, but we can't buy prayers.

Thank you again for all the love and support!!!
