    Hi guys I wanted to keep you all in the loop. Aiden is not doing so well. He is in serious liver falure. He has delevoped fluid in his tummy, and his liver and spleen are so big that he is having a hard time eating and sometimes breathing. They have him on new meds for that. He is going to be evaluted at Shands asap for transplant. We were hoping that we could wait for a while, but unfortunatly we can't. I have a web page for him. If you want to keep updated about his condition, please go there. I also have some pictures there. Keep praying for him. He is still smiling and laughing through it all. I can see he is failing though. You can see it in his eyes. It just breaks my heart. Anyway, just wanted to update you. I will let you know what happens next.

    I was just thinking of you today and praying that the reason we hadn't heard from you was that you were doing the transplant and were away from a computer. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    I don't have the words to comfort you, but I know in my heart what happens to us, all of us, happens for a reason. What that reason is we may not know for years or we may never know at all. But every living being impacts every other one often in ways too small to see. Just look how your tiny son has affected this bulletin board. Each of us feels your pain and sends our positive energy to Aiden. What happens, will happen, and if it is written that Aiden travels between the stars before you and your husband, and all who know him are ready to let him go, he will still be in a beautiful place, painfree, and still loved. And never forgotten.

    Sending you strength and courage and love.

    Sending good vibes your way. And just checked to make sure that the donor sticker is still attached to my driver's license.

    I've sent out Aiden's link to my family and friends so they can keep Aiden and his family in their thoughts and prayers.

    I pray for him and hope that he gets better soon! I too believe that we are given certain challenges for reasons, we aren't given anything we can't handle. Give him a hug and a kiss and make sure that he knows that he is THE cutest baby EVER!! He is lucky to have such loving parents, God knows that many children aren't so lucky! Hope everything works out for the best(I know it will [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] ). I will pray though, it can't hurt!
