Eric held Aiden for the first time tonight. Aiden opened his eyes and stared at his dad for a long time. Eric’s mom, Rosemary, is in town and spent time with us as well.
The doctors decided to draw Aiden’s blood this afternoon and test for infection. Nothing alarming has come back so far, his white blood cell and protein counts are high, but lower than the latest test. They gave a urinalysis and it also came back okay. Even though it’s good news with the test results, they don’t always catch an infection. They will continue to monitor him.
We are reminded that life is precious and our son is working hard to survive.
