    Oh Aaron, my heart goes out to you. What has developed over the past several days, at this time, is overwhelming for you. Unfortunately, sounds as if decisions need to be made very quickly without the follow through in considering your options.

    With the above said, I am sorry your outlook on the things you love to do seem so bleak at the moment but Aaron, whether things in time, possibly with some physical therapy, work out or not, you will adjust. You may have to do things differently or find new things that excite you, things that bring joy and calm to your life.

    First things first, make sure you are giving yourself the best odds of surviving. Living with limited abilities or even for the millions living with disabilities, does come with obstacles but look how many have overcome those obstacles. You Aaron, I have no doubt are one that will actually thrive. You have the strength to do this, keep that in mind.

    Lisa

    Dear Aaron

    Oh buddy I am so sorry things have gone so ..well crazy on you. As for how you feel right how you have the right but "this too shall pass." I believe that sometimes we need to have these moments and get the emotions out there. Bottled up or minimized emotions only messes with our thinking as they are still in there affecting our perceptions of things and won't let us get to the heart and the truth of the matter.

    But believe in you. You are young and you are strong - physically and mentally (even though you don't feel it at the moment). If anyone can make it through this and come out good on the other side I believe it is you. Ok time for a silly but true cliche - where there is a will there is a way. You have a strong will and where there isn't something that will let you live the life you want - MAKE IT.

    I know all this is scary. Heck I am scared for you too but that doesn't mean I don't believe in you or anything I just said. We are all still here for you. We aren't going anywhere. Rest assured in that ok?

    Thinking of you and sending gentle hugs your way,

    Jodie

    HI Aaron!
    If I was you, I would try to find out if they ever did this with the Belly fat before. Its still a option. So you would keep you muscles ...
    What ever you decide, we are here for you and are praying for you also.
