Aaron's Hyper IgM Journey

A Good Trip to Cincy

Finally we had a trip to Cincinnati without any problems. Aaron's treatment went well and he spent a lot of time with his favorite nurse Carol.

We found out Aaron's belly problem is pneumotosis. Gas is trapped in the walls of the intestines. They will not treat him and it should go away on its own in a few weeks or months. We just hope the gas bubbles don't burst or else we would have a huge problem (sepsis).

My heart was lifted higher than ever Tuesday evening. My BMT Mom friend, Kasi, was also at the RMH with her son Kohen. The boys were transplanted a couple of weeks apart. Aaron saw Kohen and smiled and laughed. They compared what was on their clothes (Aaron had a train shirt he was showing off and Elmo pants). Then Aaron chased Kohen around the RMH. He referred to Kohen as his little friend. This is Aaron's first friend and playmate besides his sister and cousin. This is also the first time he has seen a child without screaming at him.
