Child's battle with Whooping Cough. Turning off life support tomorrow. **UPDATE 2**
A local family are fighting along side their 7 week old son for his life. The baby boy contracted Whooping Cough a few weeks ago, since then his story has swept the state. His family are outstanding members of the community and are asking for Prayers. If you would like to read about his heart wrenching story or view pictures of this adorable baby boy please 'Like' the Facebook page "50 for Aiden". You can also watch a short clip that the news covered on him at http://www.koco.com/Baby-fights-for-his-life/-/9844716/15519928/-/2tfouv/-/index.html
This sweet baby boy only has a matter of time to have his lungs clear. They are forced to turn off the ECMO machine that is keeping him alive due to an infection present in the tubing. They will be turning off all machines tomorrow. They have done two trial runs and he only lasted 3.5minutes on his own. PLEASE PRAY or keep this beautiful baby boy in your thoughts.
Aiden has now left us just minutes ago. He is now resting peacefully and no longer has to struggle. Heaven has a new precious angel. Prayers for the family are much appreciate.
I just wanted to add that once they took Aiden off of his life support, he did live on his own for about 30 minutes. He put up a great battle. His family were able to watch him take his last breaths on his own. This baby boy has touched so many lived in ways you could not imagine. We all find comfort in knowing he is resting peacefully and his short legacy will live on as a reminder of strength for so many. His family are in my thoughts and Prayers.
