Kaden Got His Wings
I am very upset and sad to let you all know the unfortunate news. Kaden passed away in our arms and comfort at 8:15am this morning. We are grieving the loss of our little warrior who will forever be missed but never forgotten. He fought for a very hard 29 days. He is my hero and changed many a lives. All of our doctors & nurses love to tell us that they have never seen such a fighter how how he changed their hearts and minds. My favorite nurse even told me that she is a better nurse because of Kaden. I do not think she will ever know the joy that she brought to my heart by telling me that. Kaden was a sweet little angel that God graced our lives with, even if only for a short while. I am heart broken and shook, but not shattered. I know that Kaden has a purpose, and that he is with God and all his cdh friends and they are playing and laughing in their perfect healthy bodies and hoping that we will all understand that God has a plan. I can speculate on why God and Kaden chose wings instead of feet, but we may never know. All I do know is that God is lucky to have such a blessed soul to keep his company. My son was nothing short of a warrior and will forever be etched in my heart and memory.I appreciate all of the support and prayers and lung function chants. They bought us 6 more days. Dr. Stork said that it is nothing short of a miracle that Kaden did not pass away last Wednesday (6 days ago). She said that there is no medical explanation and probably will never be for him holding on so strong and surviving those six more days. All of his gases said he was in distress but my champion warrior defied the odds and kept his oxygen and pulse and BP stable until this early morning. Kaden's service will probably be on Saturday at 11 am. James and I again want to thank you all for your support, we are handling this as good as we are because of all of you. Kadens journey is not over, there are many things I plan on doing in his honor and memory.
