Kaden was taken up to Silverton Hospital where the Life Flight helicopter was waiting and flown to Doernbecher's in Portland where he underwent a little over 3 hours of surgery, stayed in ICU for a few days, got a blood transfusion and was then released home. He is currently missing the first month of school, but will head back at the end of September after he is off blood thinners. He is up and running now! Praise God for having Adam there at the right time and that Kaden is healing great!! So proud of my husband! What an adventure!
