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.
