Well, it would be an understatement to say this post is way over-due. Life has been rich and full, and, as you might have gathered, I have let blogging fall by the way side. To kick off a new trend - shall I aim for a weekly post? - I have some fantastic news!

Aidan had a scan this past Friday (March 26th) and THE LESION ON HIS SPINE IS SMALLER!!! And that's not all. There also is no other evidence of tumor!!

There is much more to update, but I'll save that for my next post. I promise to post again with pictures of Feb 6th - present within the week.

This Week in Review

Patu left on Tuesday (6AM flight). Aidan wanted to drive him to the airport, so we got up very early (3:30). Aidan was sad to see his Dad go, but after a morning nap he was ready to get back to school Tuesday afternoon.

In the news:

We had a nice visit with Iam and Boonlai on Monday and Tuesday.

Aidan operates on Elizabeth.

Blizzard strikes. Aidan up to mid-thigh in snow.

Aidan performs light show to sell-out crowd (moi, Jazzy, Mickey, Quincy, Thomas, Elizabeth, Woodie, Buzz...)

Aidan is accepted at Upland!

A Couple of Weeks with Dad

Patu has been visiting with Aidan since Jan 19th. Aidan is thrilled to see his dad! They have done a lot of guy stuff including: devouring the Captain Underpants books, building a model sail/motor boat, covering our first floor with an extensive track system, video gaming, computer tech set up, and so on... Aidan is loving every minute of it.

Dress Ups

Today we got back into the dress-ups. Not sure who had the most fun. See what you think.

Jan 20-22

Aidan's dad arrived for a visit in the early hours of the morning. Aidan was adamant that he wanted to meet him at the airport, so we did sometime around 2AM. Aidan was ecstatic to see him and beamed with smiles.

Aidan and Patu spent most of the day Wed just hanging around the house while I was out catching up on errands. Sorry for the lack of photo documentation of the day. Thursday he had a failed/aborted trip to school with Aidan insisting he wasn't going to school if his dad couldn't come with him. Friday we didn't bother trying the school thing, so Aidan and his dad had the day together at the house while I was off at a conference. Activities apparently included trampoline, sandbox, Nerf gun battle, and Playdo. We do have a couple of pics of the Playdo as well as the Toy Story play and the dress-ups that followed my return home.

Back in Action

Monday, MLK day, was Aidan's first day playing outside since getting sick. He jumped on the trampoline and rode his bike. He fell asleep on the way to music (perhaps we over did it a bit?), but had a great time at music once he woke up.

Today, Tuesday, he went back to school!

Weekend with Carolyn and Carole

The highlight of Aidan's week was Carolyn's and Carole's visit! Saturday we went back to the Painted Plate and afterward had Pizza. Sunday we played around the house.
