Not Another Procedure

The procedure that had been scheduled for Aaron this morning has been canceled. The results of his CAT scan yesterday gave the doctors a more detailed view of his arterial system and they decided that the surgery was an unnecessary risk. He is now starting a medication-based treatment plan.

This does mean that Aaron will be in the hospital a few days longer. Then he will need to stay in the Dallas area for at least a week after he is released, until a follow-up appointment.

Today Aaron is feeling stronger. The physical therapists walked him all the way down the hall this morning and promised they would be back later for more.


Medical Donation Account Opened

Many of you have been asking what you can do to help beyond sending cards or donating blood.  As you can surmise, the medical expenses for this will be tremendous.  Today we were able to get a donation account set up to help Aaron with the medical bills.  We are working out several options for those that are able to help.   This account will only be used for Aaron's medical bills.  This may include hospital and doctors bills, rehabilitation therapy, prescribed treatments and medications.
  • You can make a check out whenever you wish to: Aaron Allston Donation Fund and mail it to his post office box.  Please do not make checks out to Aaron directly.   Checks made to the fund will not affect Aaron's income.

  • In about a week Wells Fargo should have all the paperwork entered into their system.  At that point if you wish, you should be able to go to any Wells Fargo location and tell them that you wish to make a deposit to the Aaron Allston Donation Fund that was started in Texas and they should be able to look the account information up and process it.
  • We are still in the process of getting a pay pal account set up and will let you know when that is available.

Another proceedure

It's been a very busy week again with the Austin folks trying to coordinate things to keep a presence with Aaron.  We do appologize for the lack of updates and hope that each of you has had a very nice Easter.

 Aaron has been making pretty good progress with a few hiccups along the way.  The doctors continue their testing and monitoring.  The therapists continue their workouts and assessments.  And we continue to try to keep the communication and support for Aaron and his family, friends, and fans.

  Some of the testing the doctors have done indicate that there was also some obstruction in Aaron's carotid artery.  The doctors decided that rather than releasing him with that known issue they want to go ahead and take care of it prior to his release.  So Wednesday, (4/15/09) they will be doing another proceedure on Aaron.

  All your thoughts and prayers are most appreciated!

Eating the drinks

Sorry it's been so long since the last update folks. We've been running around over here.

Aaron is getting up and walking several times a day now. The PT people are keeping after him, and everyone appreciates it. He has been on the phone a bit, and delivering puns long distance. He also keeps asking for his computer.

The best thing for me, is to see or talk to him after he has just eaten. He REALLY likes his liquids these days. He chews the ice when he has finished his drink, and is in love with the last thing he had. This is wonderful. It's just made better when he talks about having the best milk he had ever had. How it was so good he was eating it. He doesn't like milk? Or at least he didn't used to. We'll see how he feels about it after he has a full choice of things to drink on his own.

He is very appreciate of all the good thoughts, prayers, and vibes that you all are sending. Keep it up people!

Escape from the ICU

At around dinner time Wednesday evening Aaron was finally moved out of the ICU to a room in the PCU (Progressive Care Unit). His nurse, the snarky one, told me that he is officially no longer in critical condition. I asked her whether that meant that his condition had been upgraded from critical to merely sarcastic...

This is going to be a long and difficult recovery, but Aaron is improving steadily.

Just got off the phone with Bob. Aaron got up and walked a little today. He is feeling well enough to be making bad puns. Since the force is in balance, his nurse is one of the snarky ones. She has been picking on him mercilessly. So we know he is being treated in a matter that he is already accustomed to.

ICU Visit

I got to see Aaron briefly this afternoon. It was awfully good to hear his voice!

Aaron said he felt "weak as a kitten", and he looked it, but he was very much himself. We had a quiet conversation, along with our usual humor, while he slowly ate some yogurt and drank iced tea.

Just a few minutes of visiting wore him out, but he seems to be stable and improving.


A phone call from Aaron

I just got off the phone with Aaron.  You are reading correctly here.  :-)

  He asked me to please tell everyone, "Thank you for standing by me."  He also wished that he could come up with something more witty...

I told him that hearing his voice was very very good for my heart.  

  I think it's a double smiley day  :-)
