Post Op 4

    Well it had to happen they moved Aidan to another room. After 1 month of being in the same PICU room they moved us down the hall in the PICU. They typically move patients around alot more and we have been lucky to be in the same room for so long. I helped get Aidan all settled into his new room and moved in another chair from the hallway.
    After visiting Aidan, we went to a barbecue for Nadia Pierce. Nadia is four years old and was born with Esophageal Atresia just like Aidan. She recently just got out of the hospital and is the oldest case of Esophageal Atresia ever to be connected by Dr. Foker. Nadia's Parents are from New York City and moved to Minnesota because two years ago they began their journey to fix Nadia. We had such a good time and are glad we went. When I tell Aidan about his Esophageal Atresia and how much work we put into making him better I will also tell him about Nadia. All the hard work this cute 4 year old girl and her family had to go through just so she could eat like me and you makes her and her family our heroes. I can't even fathom having to be in an out of the hospital for 4 years. Please pray for Brian and Pascale and their daughter Nadia that they stay out of the hospital for a very long time.
    Aidan will be hopefully be waking up tomorrow or Tuesday and we will have to go through the painful process of watching him detox from all the morphine, and go through withdrawal symptoms.
