So, I, Aunt Mandi, FINALLY made it back to Kansas to physically see Aidan for the very first time since he was diagnosed. Heading there I prepared myself to be upset at the sight of my sick nephew, trying to think of how I would control my emotions and not look like the big baby everyone knows I am. Finally, I show up at Aidan’s house and for the first 10 min I dont even see the little guy because the moment I pulled up he darted to his bedroom. And guess who showed up??
A monster with a chainsaw of course!
Once I was there I realized that Aidan is so silly there is no way I could spend any time being sad. I was too busy fighting off the monsters and listening to little boy giggles. No one would have ever guessed that this was just a few days after having his second Hickman surgery.
