  • On our way to @Mt_Seymour to snowshoe for @aidanfloyd 's birthday. Beautiful day for it. Yay! #
  • Tired and we haven't even got to the trails yet. @ Mount Seymour Trails http://t.co/5IMIYC3y #
  • On the trail. @ Mt Seymour Resorts http://t.co/TjO644c4 #
  • Hugs on the mountain. @ Mt Seymour Resorts http://t.co/dxVX53iH #
  • Reading the first 39 Clues while waiting at emerg. http://t.co/vjxcPSVi #
  • Ran out to change parking and it took me 7 tries to get my cc to work. Still in waiting room. Don't think A will be at school in the am. #
  • Hoping he will be in school by lunchtime. What an end to a birthday. #
  • Finally in waiting for the dr. Hopefully we will be home soonish. #
  • Still trying to figure out next move. Hard to tell from the exam so far as A is still in pain. #
  • The resident seemed puzzled. Sigh. #
  • Aidan just cried himself to sleep on my lap. This was not the birthday I imagined for him. #
  • Home again. Nothing broken but now it is a mystery pain. Praying that it is just an anomaly that will be gone by tomorrow never to return. #
  • Aidan back at the hospital. Pain is worse. I feel so helpless. :( #
  • So ready to try to relax at home. http://t.co/QJXLONfc #
  • Heading home until tomorrow's bone scan. @ BC Children's Hospital http://t.co/W9Iu2m5M #
  • A bright spot in a trying 24 hours. http://t.co/wifLSxsM #
  • Checking in at emerg before going to outpatient for the bone scan. #
  • Numbing cream on the feet. In15 minutes the IV goes in and we are on our way. #
  • We are encouraged to eat and drink lots in between the scans. Good thing, we were starving yesterday. #
  • He looks more comfortable sleeping this way than lying down. #sickboy @ BC Children's Hospital http://t.co/9Hb5samP #
  • Tiger's eye view. #sickboy #bonescan @ BC Children's Hospital http://t.co/89h2uVRs #
  • Aidan is trying to sleep while we wait. I can now add listlessness & reduced appetite to symptoms. Also a tendency to splotchiness. #sickboy #
  • Getting some codeine for the pain tonight and hope some sleep will help. Not much new except that something is wrong with his hand. Sigh. #
  • Thanks everyone for your support with Aidan. I am hoping some sleep for all and a miracle by morning. #
  • Ok turning off the iPad now. I mean it this time. Really. I think. Hmm. How about now. 😉 #
  • After seeing our family dr she sent us guess where? Yes. The emerg. Sigh. She doesn't think oral antibiotics will be enough. #
  • Aidan's hand now twice the size of the other one. #
  • Aidan is being admitted to the hospital and being put on IV antibiotics. Thanks to everyone for supporting us through this. #sickboy #
  • Aidan is if finally sleeping after IV antibiotics, fluids and some pain meds. Now we just need a bed upstairs. Happy to be doing something. #
  • Aidan's decision to have donations to the children's hospital instead of gifts at his birthday party next week was a good idea I guess. :) #
  • Aidan is going in for a small operation to drain the hand in a little while. Things go fast when the (rest of) symptoms come all at once. #
  • Thanks everyone. Aidan is in surgery now to get the infection drained. The surgeons were concerned enough not to let it wait till tomorrow. #
  • He was a little scared but all the doctors and nurses have been very reassuring. I am looking forward to a decrease in is pain. #
  • We will know better after surgery, but it looks like it is a deep infection near the muscle between his thumb and index finger as well a #
  • Skin infection. So the surgery is to drain fluid and infection from his hand so it doesn't do any further damage. #sickboy #
  • It looks like Aidan will be in the hospital for at least a few days. I am relieved & a little stunned @ how quickly things are moving today. #
  • Thanks for the good thoughts & virtual hugs. There are so many of you I can't name you all. This is why I love twitter, so many friends. #
  • Pain relief. Mommy relief. http://t.co/J6saBNWl #
  • So to update : Aidan is out of surgery & is asleep in his room. He had a deep infection in the base of his thumb & it was causing the pain. #
  • It is the first time in days that his face and body have been free and relaxed. It is a joy to see. #
  • Ok I am officially exhausted. Going dark until morning. Thanks to all my friends out there. You make things easier. #
  • Another restless night. I forgot how often vitals are checked after surgery. A is doing well enough to be bored & is now listening to HP. #
  • Poor boy. Aidan is still uncomfortable and is still running a fever. :( #sickboy #
  • Awesome!!!!!! RT @The_Pigeon: Lego Pigeon & HUGE McFadden Lecture Pigeon Poster: http://t.co/MJvhEXkz #
  • For those not following @AnthonyFloyd a quick Aidan update: as well as the hand infection he also has a blood infection. #
  • A blood infection means at least another week of IV antibiotics and hospital stay but probably longer. For now he is much more comfortable. #
  • When I get a little more organized I will put the Facebook updates on the blog and flesh out what is going on. #
  • Right now the best thing one can do is send good thoughts out. We appreciate all the support & will let you know if there is anything else. #
  • Though, if anyone knows of a good massage therapist, I may need one at the end of this. :) #
  • Sorry guys, I am home for a little bit for a shower & a nap. I will try to get back to everyone, but please know I appreciate all offers. :) #
  • i know it is to be expected but Q is being a pain in the bum and a little hellion. lots of tantrums and tears. #
  • Some quality cuddle time with my other boy. http://t.co/TM0vLSzx #
  • sad to be missing #vmno I could use the drinks and hugs. Hugs going out to all my friends, you have been my sanity these last few days. #
  • Quinlan finally admitted he was worried that Aidan won't come home from the hospital. He finally seems to be settling down for the night. #
  • Aidan is still tired but doing much better today. About 8 hours with a few interruptions has really helped. #
  • New linens, new pajamas lots of activity and Aidan is now very tired. @AnthonyFloyd picking up Q so both can have a nap. #
  • We have some tired smiles today. :) @ BC Children's Hospital http://t.co/EvcIWt80 #
  • Had a nice visit with Aidan's godfather. They weren't fazed by the vomit at all. #
  • Tired of treehouse so he is watching @jamesmay Toy Stories. @ BC Children's Hospital http://t.co/UModAq8F #
  • Of all the doctors, the hand surgeon seems to get Aidan at his worst. Of course the surgeon comes when Aidan is most tired and cranky. :) #
  • Made it through more vomiting, a hand soak and physio, more doctors and nurses. Now @aidanfloyd is sleeping peacefully. #
  • May I just say it? I Love @The_Pigeon. I may need to buy his app. #
  • Now the big question, do I use Netflix and watch seem crap tv or a crap movie while @aidanfloyd sleeps? #
  • . @The_Pigeon my son @aidanfloyd laughed at your app. He is in the hospital and it made my day to hear him laugh again. #sickboy #
  • Teamwork to finish the brain puzzle, but it is wearing on the boy. :( @ BC Children's Hospital http://t.co/MMMBzbPf #
  • We are getting the blood cultures/tests now. They want it while he is spiking to see if it is still in the blood. #
  • Time to relax a bit before the nurse comes in again. Goodnight everyone and thank you for all the good thoughts for us. #
  • Sigh. Spewing from both ends. At least we were in the bathroom. It is gonna be a long night. #sickboy #
  • Ok. We are bussing it to MCD by the library and them walking to meet Michelle. Making it an adventure. #
  • On our way to get supper and go to see Fred Penner. http://t.co/0JUhFqxg #
  • I think there is a game tonight. :) @ Queen Elizabeth Theatre http://t.co/zzsdcrQk #
  • Almost time for Fred Penner. @ Vancouver Playhouse Theatre http://t.co/9HhRi2kN #
  • Fred Penner is a lovely man. He recorded a message just for Aidan. #sickboy #
  • Thanks to @MichelleLKent and M for joining us at Fred Penner. it was fun. #
  • Is it earth hour? @scienceworldca is dark. As soon as we get home we'll be dark too. #
  • Putting a very tired and excited little boy to bed. Theatre class then hospital tomorrow. #
  • Fred Penner after he sang some more Cat Came Back when Quinlan asked. http://t.co/WdnARE3i #
  • Aidan loves the video that Fred Penner was kind enough to record for me. I am so glad I asked. #sickboy #
  • Since I am not on Aidan duty tonight I should get some sleep. Praying for Q to sleep in a bit since we were out so late. #
