They had to put in another IV last night because it went bad again. Poor kid has had so many it is hard to get them and keep them. He has 2 IVs and one Art line so three of his extremities are being used. His arms are still tied to the bed and will be until he is off of the vent. I can't wait until he comes off of that thing so I can hold him again. I miss holding my baby boy. He is very aware that we are here and responds to our voices.

We had a really nice visit yesterday from another heart mom who was here with her heart warrior. She brought us a care package full of snacks and things for Aidan to play with. I can't tell you how much it meant to me. I have said it before but its worth saying again. I would never have chosen this path of being a heart mom but I am proud to be a part of such an amazing group of women. Despite what they are going through they always are there for each other. It is really amazing. Thankfully her son Stosh was able to go home yesterday! Praying he continues to do well.
Jacob's cardiologist from home called last night around 9pm. We have the best doctors in the world. What doctor takes time on a Saturday night to check on one of their patients who is out of town? Dr. Heydarian, that's who. He wanted to know how his buddy was doing. Love that man. His pediatrician Dr. Shields has also been checking in on him by messaging and facebook. We are so blessed. I really love all of his doctors and love how much they care about him.
