One Day at a Time - November 18 pm

One day at atime…one play at a time.   Aaron’s competitive genes are in play.

The doctors have been conducting extensive tests/evaluations to determine the full extent of Aaron's injuries.   It’s been scary to watch and even more painful to wait.  The UCSD medical team has determined that there are no other significant complications beyond those identified by his Santa Barbara physicians.   They continue to monitor his critical vascular issues (lower legs) and treat his skin & tissue injuries.    There’s a lot of “wait & see” in terms of monitoring his  recovery and treating infections.

The day ended on a high.  The medical teams have been telling us all along to talk to him, as he likely can hear our voices.  Prior to leaving the hospital tonight, Aaron opened his eyes.  He supposedly responded when someone mentioned that Lindsey was coming home in a couple days.   It was wonderful reconnecting with him as he opened his eyes and responded to our voices. We left him to rest, as tomorrow will bring the rigors of additional treatments for his wounds and further evaluations of his feet.

We thank everyone for their love and support to Aaron. The walls of his room will be plastered with your kind “wishes for health & recovery” which he will see when he awakes.

We too have a son and a daughter who are so … close. The fact that Aaron is responding to the knowledge that his sister will be his side soon is a testament to their relationship and the strength they lend to one another. Hugs to you all from Toronto ON Canada

Keep talking, and sharing stories just as if Aaron were contributing to the conversations. From my own personal experience (25 years ago...sedated in coma in critical condition) he does hear you!! I'm certain!! It will be your voices and abundance of love that will bring him through.
