Aaron's Hyper IgM Journey

The beginning of a tough road

Aaron was admitted to the hospital today and so the journey begins...

Our day started so nicely. We drove around Cincinnati in search of a good train spotting location. We found one but did not have time to wait for trains. Aaron had to be to the hospital for surgery. He had a double lumen catheter placed. This is for the chemo and numerous blood draws.

In the evening we were moved to Aaron's new room. I will write plenty more later on our new home, but for now, it feels like we have had our freedom taken away. Aaron is in a crib that looks like a cage and we were told to keep him in it as much as possible. The nurse said it is best if he doesn't run around because he could get hurt.

We were sad when we saw a family packing up their things to move out of the RMH. They had to take their two week old off of life support. Today was not fun and not a very great day. We have a lot of adjusting to do. Today we are all going to bed tired. Tomorrow is a new day.


  1. Chandelle & Mike- this journey will be a challenging one. I am sorry you had a bad day. Our thoughts are with you. I hope you can keep Aaron entertained without the desire to run. It will be tough. Love, Janice

  2. Chandelle, I'm so sorry to hear today was so tough. We keep praying for you guys. Hang in there, Aaron will appreciate the sacrifices you are all making. Xo-Ommy & Brian
