Aidan’s okay

I was talking to a few of the girls on my message board about how I haven’t had any dreams with Aidan in them yet.  I’ve had pregnancy dreams and delivery dreams but none of them had Aidan in them.  Well last night kind of changed that.  My co-workers in my department got a star registered in Aidan’s name, love that!, and I had a dream about it.  A bunch of us were outside at night looking at the stars. I was like “Hey, we can look for Aidan’s star!” We were looking and then I saw like 5 “blobs” of light dancing in the sky.  I don’t know any other way of describing it other than blobs. We went inside because the blobs were getting closer.  I remember that Chris was in the kitchen of some house and I went up into a bedroom to hide.  The blobs came into the room that was in, but they all joined into one big ball. It reminded me of the fuzzy feeling in the 1800 flowers commercial.  I just to run, but it followed me. I said “Aidan?” The blob didn’t talk because there was no mouth, but it said “No, but he wanted us to tell you that he’s okay.” I’m crying as I write this thinking about the dream, it was that moving. So I asked the blob (I promise I’m not crazy :-) ) if he’ll ever come visit me. It said “We’re not sure, he just wanted us to pass this message on to you.”  Then I woke up

I, for the most part, had a really great day. I mean how could I not after being told that my baby is okay. I know that I will still have my ups and downs, but knowing that Aidan is okay is fantastic.

I love you Aidan Christopher and thank you so much for my message!

  8. Maggie,
    I came across your blog unexpectedly and am so happy that I did. I am a nurse in the NICU that little Aidan was in. Although I never took care of him personally, I feel extremely grateful and blessed to have gotten the chance to meet him. I knew the moment I walked into his room that he was an exceptionally loved little boy. It made me smile to see all the wonderful things his family had decorated his room with. Definitely the coolest room in the NICU! I only got to spend one night with him, but it will forever be a most precious memory for me. I feel truly honored to have gotten the chance to be a part of his life. He was such a patient little guy when us silly nurses couldn't figure out how to mix the concoction just right for his hands and feet molds. He even let us take photos of the whole thing. He taught me about compassion and gentle, loving care and made me certain that there was nothing else in the world I would rather be than a nurse.

  9. P.S. I think you are one amazing woman to have accomplished all the wonderful things you have done in honor of Aidan, like donating milk. It truly will make a difference in the lives of babies everywhere and I am so grateful for all that you have done.
