Update on Aaron

Ginger Schonberg has been kind enough to keep me updated as she receives information about the condition and status of Aaron Edwards. Below is an email that Ginger sent me yesterday.

I want to thank each of you who has taken a moment of silence, a moment or prayer for Aaron and to those of you who felt moved to donate to the Wounded Warrior Project. I'm humbled and honored to know you.


I wanted to update you on Jan’s son Aaron. He is being flown in the morning from Afghanistan to Germany where he will be stabilized for the flight home. We don’t have a further medical update however, but as soon as they get him to Landstuhl Medical Center in Germany she will be able to get an update. It is 10.5 hours ahead of us so he is probably on his way or close to being on his way right now. As soon as they get him in the air to fly home, she will be contacted as to where she and his father and wife will be able to go to be with him.

It is really a miracle that he is still alive. He was shot under his arm, with the bullet then entering and exiting his lung (collapsing the lung) and is now lodged between his lung and his heart. The surgery to remove to bullet is too dangerous. A centimeter in either direction and it may have been a very different report.

She is holding up remarkably well. She is grateful for all the support. It’s made this easier for her, I know.

Please continue to pray and send good thoughts for her.
