Some pictures...

Aiden is doing well. Yesterday we went for longer walks and he played a little in the playroom they have there. One thing, he gets upset when any medical worker comes into his room. It is sad he gets so scared, but I can't blame him. He also had some pain we think yesterday because he was a little more distressed then usual for a few hours. Today he has had a slight fever and his blood pressure is up a little. But the doctors think it is because he is a little mad right now. They said they see that in chidren alot. So hopefully that is the case. His doctors here and the nurses in intensive care were just wonderful.

He lit up when he saw my parents, Chad and Taylor come into the hospital last night. We thought he said, "poppy"... it was some sort of a "p" word. By the time we left he was pretty beat. So that is the latest... we are just so tired with everything going on. But it will all be worth it in the end - let me rephrase that, it IS worth it. He is such a blessing and has such a cute personality. Very fiesty and he plays games with us. It actually makes me a little sad for his biological mom... that she probably wanted this surgery for him and knew they could not afford it. I have heard that over and over from people about how poor they are and how a surgery like this would wipe out an entire family. It is hard as a mom not to think about his mom and what she gave up. I am so happy that we will be able to give him a happy and healthy life though, but I will never forget the other side of the coin.

Aiden is so blessed to have a mommy like you--you being/feeling so empathetic toward his biological mother even when you have benefited from her decision. You may think the gift is Aiden, but I think one day he will know that the gift is you, his mommy.
