We’ve all been riding this unfortunate and unfathomable“roller coaster of life“ for nearly four months now. Last Friday, the ride finally took an elating turn, which sent us over the moon.
Aaron had his long-awaited “Neil Armstrong moment.” He took his “FIRST STEPS” (for the second time in his life). Seeing him walk in his prosthetics was a joyous event…tearfully proud...SPECTACULAR.
Since returning home from the hospital, Aaron has been working to regain his strength and coordination. He has been receiving daily massages to break down scar tissue to improve skin resiliency and flexibility.
We can’t say enough about Aaron’s medical team. His doctors, nurses and therapists have invested thousands of hours to help Aaron return to his active lifestyle. They’ve done a fabulous job and for that...we owe them dearly. The baton has now been passed to Aaron’s prosthetic team. Aaron's prosthetists are hugely experienced with trauma injuries to young athletes and our nation’s wounded soldiers. Aaron could not be in better hands.
Aaron’s journey to “full recovery” remains long and challenging. It will have both uphill and downhill sections, setbacks and adjustments.
But it was truly re-energizing to see Aaron’s smile as he took those “first steps.”
We have no doubt that we’ll see him on the summit.
Thanks Everyone...you've all been wonderful and helpful to Aaron.
