Dad and John are going up to the hospital this morning to help with Aaron. After being taken off the sedation he is understandably agitated. I won't go into all the details but you can imagine how frightening it must be. Aaron is 6'3" tall and very strong even in his condition and little Angie, his nurse and I were very busy yesterday. He wants Angie with him all the time so it was very hard for her to leave last night when visiting hours were over.

We ask that in your prayers today for Aaron you would ask our heavenly Father for peace for him so that he can sleep and that his body would heal.

Aaron's room is filled with pictures, posters, cards and a huge stack of e-mail's and your blog comments. Early yesterday morning, before she went to the hospital, Angie went to Meijer's and made big posters with pictures of the kids and bought a 3 ring note book for us to put all your messages and prayers in. I have been trying to keep up with printing them all out each night so that when Aaron is able he will know how many people were pulling for his recovery. Please know that every one of your messages of encouragement and offers for assistance are so precious to all of us and all of your prayers are what is getting Aaron through each and every day.

Most sincerely,
Sue and Family

    We have been following your blogs regarding Aaron (Steve has been following from Sweden where he has been working). We continue our prayers, not only for Aaron, but Angie, the kids, you and John and all the rest of the family. Stay strong and let us know if any of the cousins can lend a hand doing anything.

  5. Sue, I haven't been visiting lately and see that you have some trying times here. I will pray for Aaron, too and pray for God to restore his health and make him better again.

    Aaron & Family. After hearing what you have been through, we encourage you to be strong and let all the extra prayers guide you to a full and fast recovery. My daughter Lauren who plays with Riley at school says prayers for all of you every night. If we can help out in any way, let me know. We are all thinking of you.

  9. I'm so sorry for what Aaron is going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I can't believe all he has been though.

    I don't know why your blog hasn't come up on bloglines for me... sorry I didn't comment earlier.

    Take care!

    Wendy Endres sent Todd and I your blog, we have passed it on to many other friends wondering about Aaron. Let him know that we are praying for him every day and we want him to know that so many people ask about him every day wondering how he is doing. He has many prayers being sent to heaven, so we all hope for a fast and full recovery. All our Love Marci and Todd Gruss.

  11. Sue,
    Yes, I do pray for peace and rest for Aaron....

    Ronald, the man that I mentioned to you, is agitated because he can't communicate also....

    We gave his wife a journal for her, the children, friends to write notes for Ronald....a log of phone calls, etc....a daily progress report....hopefully when he is well, he can look back and see the concern and prayers for him...

    Please drop by my blog...I have something for you.....Betty

  12. Aaron,
    God grant you peace and courage through this ordeal. Blessings are sent your way for a smooth recovery. Please know that so many people have you in their thoughts and prayers.

    So happy to hear there is light at the end of the tunnel. Please know that we continue our prayers for Aaron. I'm back to normal now...a few days of flu, but I bounced back.
