I'm sending out an update on Aiden's status for Leslie and Chris because many of you have asked how is doing and they are not/will not be responding/checking emails, phone calls or texts.
Aiden had his surgery this afternoon and the news that came back was a little more than what was expected. The doctors went in and found that the fluid in his lungs was not fluid related to pneumonia but was in fact blood. When they went in further to determine what the cause of it was, they found a tumor in the diaphram. Half the tumor came out and from the look of it, the doctors said it was malignant. They sent it to be biopsied for an actual confirmation of this, but as of now that is the information they gave us. He has been moved to the PICU and is in stable condition. He was in stable condition the whole time during the surgery. After the surgery he was in good spirits and was acting like fun loving Aiden.
We are hoping that they will be able to get him in for a CT Scan tonight to determine if there are any more tumors and to basically get more information. As of now, it is a waiting game. Last check on him, he was sleeping and looks peaceful. We are all hoping for some good results that there are no more tumors. Where it goes from here, we don't know.
We will let you know as soon as we hear any more news. As of now, the hospital is not allowing visitors, but we will let you know as soon as they change this. If you have any questions or concerns you would like me to pass on to Chris and Leslie, please direct them to me here at firstname.lastname@example.org as they are not checking/responding to emails, answer phone calls or texts, etc.
Please keep all of them in our prayers as we wait to hear more.
Thank you!Kere Knapp
