Found a wonderful applicable quote…
"You have to accept the storms and the rainy days and the things in life that you sometimes don't want to face."
It’s been raining/drizzling in San Diego since Aaron’s procedure on Wednesday. Perhaps there’s a link.
Actually Aaron has always liked the rain. We remember his adventurous years growing up in England, visiting castles, hiking through the hills of Scotland and Wales, touring historic towns/sites throughout Europe…often dressed in his “wellies” and Gortex…stomping through every puddle he could find. Those were wonderful formative years for our kids and family.
As the clouds begin to break this afternoon and the sun begins to fight through…so does Aaron. He’s whipped the fever that has been challenging him for the past couple days. His wounds are slowly healing and his vital signs continue to strengthen. He is undergoing twice daily testing/exercises…preparing him to have his ventilator removed (hopefully in the next few days).
Aaron’s biggest foe is infection. And to optimize his healing environment, the medical team is encouraging us to limit his exposure to outside germs.
Aaron is aware of the massive support from his fan base(s). We’re constantly reading the cards, web-messages and voice-memos to Aaron. I've been enjoying (for Aaron of course) the SI Swimsuit addition that one of his UCSB mates sent him. While the journey ahead is long…we’re optimistic that he’s on the mend.
