Aaron's Hyper IgM Journey

My miracle child

Aaron woke up at four o'clock this morning. He sleeps most of the day, but at 4am he decided he was done sleeping and ready to watch movies. Tired, but elated, I dragged myself out of my chair bed and sat next to him. We watched his new cooking movies he received for his birthday.

Aaron has proven to be one tough kid! The nephrologist came by this morning and said Aaron no longer requires dialysis and we can take out the dialysis lines. He said he is shocked; he was certain Aaron would need dialysis for weeks to months based on how sick his kidneys were. Aaron has been a peeing machine lately requiring frequent bedding changes. Looks like he is making up for lost time.

The physical therapist brought in a table and chairs for Aaron to start working on strength. He laughed and played and smiled and laughed some more as he cooked for his doggies. My heart was overjoyed!

The next step is walking. Aaron can't even stand up at this point. Once he has worked up his strength and can walk, we are out of here!!!!! I really cannot believe it.
