Aaron's Hyper IgM Journey

Escapees (Day +63)

Michael and Aaron broke out of the hospital today.  What fun to see Aaron enjoying himself out in the fresh air.  We all got to eat dinner together at the Ronald McDonald House.  Aaron ate his pizza and spaghetti.  He eats adult size portions and has gained 5 pounds in the past few weeks.  He is HUGE!!! 

Although Aaron does not look like himself at all, his personality is still the same.  He is adorable.

Aaron continues to do really well.  The doctors are lowering his steroids slowly.  This will be the ultimate test of how his body reacts to his transplant.  His liver is still abnormal.  The doctors still believe it will heal on its own.  Aaron may get to break out of the hospital for good Monday.  We are keeping our fingers crossed.  If he does well over the weekend, we may get to leave.

(Aaron was actually given a day pass from the doctors to leave.  Don't worry, we weren't trying to endanger our kid).  :-)


  1. Yay...So glad for the breakout...y'all need this kind of excitement and fun! He is adorable! Crossing everything for good things on the weekend. Prayers & hugs.
