Aidan's Hospital Visit

On September 29th we took Aidan to the hospital, he was running a fever of 101. Once in the ER they ran a bunch of tests on him....blood work, blood cultures, spinal taps, urine cultures, chest x-rays, etc. Since he was so young, and his fever was so high, they decided to admit us, until they could figure out was wrong with him. We were in the hospital for 4 nights and 3 days. Aidan's fever would go down one day and back up the next day. But all of his lab work was coming back negative. So the doctor explained to us, that it was more than likely just a virus, and that his little body was fighting it off. It was a very scary experience for all of us, and we are just so happy and so thankful to be home, with a healthy baby boy. I want to thank all of my friends who sent me text messages, emails, card.....and for those who came by to visit and who brought us food. We are very lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives.

One day his fever got as high as 103, so they had to strip him down, to try and bring his body heat down
He looks soooo peaceful

All ready to go home......FINALLY
