Aaron's Hyper IgM Journey

Aaron's first plane ride

With a father that is an airline pilot and a grandfather who is an ex-fighter pilot in the air force and then a Southwest Airlines captain, I never would have imagined my child's first plane ride would be a hospital to hospital transfer via a medical plane.

Please do not be concerned. This is actually prayers answered. The hospital in Orlando is not capable of caring for Aaron. He needs BMT experts and that is what he will get. This experience over the last month is a testament to why we chose Cincinnati in the first place.

I don't know what the future holds for us. This could be a short stay or we may stay for months again. Time will tell, but we will make our decisions based on what Aaron needs.

The transition was incredibly smooth. Today is September 11th and I can only imagine all the brave people who helped during the crisis so many years ago. We had a whole set of heros for just one little boy. Aaron was taken by ambulance to Orlando Executive airport, then flown by the nicest pilots to Lunken airport, and then carried by ambulance to CCH. In all, eight emergency personnel and pilots brought Aaron safely from Florida to Ohio. We are so very thankful to these people who do more than just their job.

  1. This sounds like the best thing for Little Aaron. I am not glad you are back in a place far from your work, house and friends but the care that you will get will be the best. We want Aaron on a flight to California one day to see us. Love- Janice and her boys

  2. I'm glad you two made it there safely and quickly. I was worried you had to drive all the way back wih his current condition. At least he will be getting the best care that he deserves. So disappointed in arnold Palmer!
