Just a quick update here:

Aaron is having surgery tomorrow.  They're doing an ABR (extensive hearing test), removing a cyst from just below his right collarbone, removing his adenoids, removing and replacing his ear tubes, and checking carefully for any nasties that might be showing up back in his middle ear and the surrounding bones.

We check in at 7:30 and surgery is scheduled for 9:00 a.m.  We're hoping to be home by about mid to late afternoon.

Please keep him in your prayers.  His asthma has been really acting up again.  I had to give two breathing treatments tonight, about an hour and a half apart, and then bag him for a few minutes to really help pull him out of it.

I'll try to update here tomorrow, but if it's crazy or exhausting, it may just be on his Facebook page.

Oh, and for all those who wonder how we do it, or what it's like, emotionally, anyway, there's an amazing slideshow that a friend put together.  I've linked it on Aaron's Facebook page.  It gives amazing insight into this journey that we're on.  But grab the tissues, especially when you put the music and the pictures together.  You've been warned.


  1. We are praying for Aaron, you, your family, and all of the doctors, nurses, & other caregivers who help care for him. We love you!

  2. Sending The Force and keeping our finger crossed for you, Mr. Aaron! ;)
