Aidan got moved over to 5A. Me, Laura, Barb and Cindy we all with Aidan relaxing and our nurses were in the process of setting up his monitors when Laura noticed Aidan was not breathing or moving. The Nurse immediately pushed the Code Button and our world collapsed. I screamed, "Help" and got run over by about 30 nurses and doctors.
We were immediately shuffled out into the worst room you could ever imagine. The Butterfly Room were they have a quilt on the wall with lots of butterflies and one square that said butterflies are free. I wanted to break the room, I wanted to scream and mostly I cried. Not knowing what was going on with Aidan was the worst thing ever. While waiting I had said to Laura, "Good Thing I went to church this sunday." Child family-life told us he had to muscle through at least 10 people to get any answers and came back after 2 minutes saying that he is being Intubated to put him back on the Ventilator. We had asked if Aidan's heart was beating and he said he would come back with more news. Those minutes were the longest of my life. Jason in child family-life came back with news that Aidan's heart is beating and they are still working on him. After a few minutes they allowed me and Laura to see Aidan in the Intensive Care Unit and he looks like he is fighting it and he has just about everyone looking after him now. We are worried that this may have caused nerological issues and they will probably give him tons of tests over the next few days. He has not moved since he coded and they are working on improving his blood gases. It may take a while for him to move after this so we will keep you posted.
