Aaron's Battle Update

Here are a couple of my favorite pictures of Aaron with his two daughters at Kyle & Carrie's wedding last year.
I'm going to post updates here for all the Saints that are praying so fervently for Aaron. There are no words to express our gratitude for your prayers which from the e-mail's that I have received are going up to heaven from all across the USA and quite possible the world. The way I visualize it is like the opening of the old Christmas movie It's A Wonderful Life where so many people are praying for George Bailey.
Aaron had a busy day yesterday while all the wonderful Doctors and Nurses worked very hard on him. They had to put him on the respirator and getting that regulated was quite a chore. Most of the day we could not get into see him because they were cleaning him up which took a very long time because the burned area now covers almost his entire body except his hands and feet. Today they will take him to the OR to clean him up more because with the respirator in place they are able to sedate him a little more with less chance of his breathing stopping.

The Dr's. and Nurses told us that the progression of what is going on can be viewed as a bell curve. What we are waiting for is for the progression to get to the top of the curve which they tell us has not happened yet.

Before we came home last night, because they make us leave so that the family will be rested, fed and showered to help prevent germs, the Nurse came out and talked to us and explained that he is awake though sedated as much as possible and unable to talk because of the respirator, but that we can bring in cards and pictures to read to him and show him but no flowers. When we got home I printed e-mail prayers, well wishes and blessings that we will take with us today to read to him if we can after the surgery.

We are putting on the full armor of God around here and we are so grateful for all of your support and ask that you continue to pray for Aaron.

Again, thank you, and we will continue to keep you updated here. It has been such a blessing hearing from you all.

Hugs,
Sue

  2. Oh my goodness Sue, I had no idea this was going on in your life. I have been getting caught up on my favourite blogs and just now stopped by yours. Although I am not completely sure what your poor son is going through, it certainly appears as though he is going through an incredible battle. I hope today shows some improvement and less discomfort for him...I will most definitely pray for him and your family. Please know I'm thinking of you, and I wish you strength and comfort.

    Take care,
    Linda
