Hello dear friends~
I hope this e-mail finds you well and that you have been enjoying this hot summer. Aidan has been feeling relatively well. We have been so happy to have him home...he has managed to stay out of the hospital since June 14th (a record for this little man).
We are asking for you to keep sweet Aidan in your prayers.
He has an MRI of the brain & spine this Monday 7/26. It is essential that we have a clean scan to move forward to stem cell transplant.
Unfortunately, we have received some discouraging news...Aidan had a CT scan a couple of days ago that may have showed some disease progression. However, the quality and resolution of the film was low (the scan was done to evaluate the fluid in his ventricles, it is not the ideal film to interpret disease status- MRI is the gold standard). Of course, this news was frightening to us nonetheless.
So, we lift little Aidan up to God and ask that He goes before him to the MRI scan. We pray the MRI results be clear and encouraging and show that Aidan is improving.
We thank you for all of your prayers and support during this very difficult time. I will update next week with results.
