Aidan was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor, on December 19, 2009 after a very brief illness. He endured multiple surgeries and five rounds of high dose chemotherapy.
Our sweet, very brave boy lost his battle and went to heaven on July 30, 2010. He was 3 years old.
Please follow Aidans journey through the blog entries below.
We will contine to share stories, post pictures and make memories in his honor. Aidan will forever be remembered.

Aidan Update 5/31

Hello friends,

Again, I write from Children's. Aidan was admitted to the ICU this afternoon. Upon waking this morning, he was vomitting blood. Already today, they have transfused blood and platelets. When a patient is actively bleeding, they run a lab to test clotting times. Aidan's were double what they should be (meaning it is taking him a lot longer for his blood to clot). Of course, this puts him at risk of bleeding anywhere. So, we are in the ICU to have him closely monitored. No one has given us a clear reason as to why the elevated level. I'm sure that there will be many more tests run tomorrow.

His chemo cycle a couple of weeks ago went well. It was, thankfully, uneventful this time. He will have another full MRI on 6/14 and will go to stem cell transplant shortly thereafter.

Please keep Aidan in your prayers. We are hoping for a very short stay here in the ICU.

I will update you as I am able.
