This past couple weeks has been pretty good. Aidan was finished with his antibiotics bag on Tuesday. He was so excited he ran around the house for a good 15 minutes. It is nice that he gets to be him old self for awhile. He definitely is back to being Aidan. You can see video of Aidan here! (he cracks me up!)
I think we are all glad to see him being his silly self again. We have all definitely missed that side of him. He even talked to me on the phone last night because he HAD to tell me someone sent him a Sleestack costume after this article was posted. He has promised to wear it for me when I visit for Thanksgiving. I can’t wait to see what he does with that one. I will be sure to get pictures😀.
On Tuesday Aidan goes back to the hospital have his Hickman line replaced. Keep him in your thoughts and your prayers that all goes well. It breaks my heart that he has to go through it again but he has proven to be pretty resilient. I have to remind myself to be thankful that we have technology like the Hickman to help him make it through this.
The Reed Men
The family has had TONS of interviews in the past couple of weeks. Aidan has been LOVING the cameras. I hear he has been quite the ham. The Reeds have been in the Huffington Post, TODAYshow.com, ABC News Online, The front page of their local newspaper, and they should be in this weeks issue of In Touch Magazine. But the biggest most exciting/nervewracking interview was with John Berman for ABCs World News. There is a good chance their interview will air tonight (5:30PM Central), if not tonight early next week. I am pretty excited to see what they do with it!
Aidan is a beautiful, creative, quirky, 5 year old boy. He has a passion for drawing and monsters. On September 13, 2010 he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Here is where we share his story.
