This is my husband. We've been together since I was fifteen.
And this September, we'll have been married for seven years.
While I have certainly not always been the best wife, Aaron has been the most amazing husband ever. He’s helped me cope with my severe anxiety and autoimmune disorders. He supported me when my job as a caricature artist didn’t make enough to split the bills evenly, knowing that, if I stuck with it, it eventually would. He let me take in four pets, even when our apartment complex only allowed two, because he knew it would make me happy (and did it ever). Aaron is the photographer behind all of the Circle of Fountains rituals and, as a Christian, has always been incredibly accepting of my faith. He has always went out of his way to make me comfortable despite my illnesses and my life full of bliss.
About a year ago, we noticed a “bubble” on his skin that would deflate like a squeaky toy and fill right back up with air again. Our GP told us it was likely just a cyst, but warned us that, should it change color or size, he should come back in. Fast-forward to about three weeks ago, when it turned purple and the underlying growth protruded through the skin. He went back in, was referred to a dermatologist and had it removed. Within six hours, the growth was back, and within twelve, it was twice the size of the original. Pathology came back on Friday as it being a “benign fatty lipoma with abnormal cells,” but they couldn't distinguish what the abnormal cells were because there wasn’t enough sample to work with.
He’s scheduled for surgery this Friday, July 31st (Blue Moon) at 3:15 pm CST to have the entire tumor, which extends fairly deep, removed.
If he could get good thoughts, energy, prayers, candle lightings or whatever you prefer, I would truly appreciate it. They don’t know what they’re going to find when they go in there. I don’t know what I’d do without him. Everything is so up in the air right now. I will post when his surgery starts and when it’s finished here if anyone would like to lend energy during the actual procedure, and keep everyone updated.
