Alex Thursday PM

Dr. Z (the head burn doc)  came in at 1:00 today and said Alex's grafts are taking nicely.  A nurse said they looked beautiful.  Dr Z said he hopes to have Alex out of here Monday.  Wahooooooooo~~~~!!!!!!

He never did win the battle with the heat - he was told that 68 was the lowest they could turn it due to bacteria and the burns.

But he won the battle of skin grafts.  He also got the bandages taken off his 3 fingers.  The human body is amazing.  He grew skin on 3 fingers, covering  up knuckles that were showing, in less than 3 weeks.  His bandages were removed from his lower legs.  He's progressing!!

Looks like he will be transported to Dixie Regional Neurological Center Monday.  I will meet with his case worker tomorrow to get all the details.  Even though he will be in the hospital a little longer at least we will have him back in St. George.  All those that are wanting to come visit, hold tight, looks like he will be back to Dixie next week.
P.S.  Daniels mom - I told Alex I saw you Monday night - he said "I miss Daniel".  We hope to see him during Thanksgiving break :)

  2. Great news about the grafts! We are so happy that Alex is improving and thanks for keeping all of us updated on this blog. It is astounding the breadth of concern in our community; folks in every corner of Saint George, completely unrelated to your church, Snow Canyon High, etc. that are hoping for and watching his recovery. Let Alex know that his story has touched many you do not know and will never meet.

  4. Grant's (4 yrs old) prayer last night: "Please bless Alex to feel better. Bless Alex and Dane to not get hit by lighting. Bless lighting to not go by the schools. Amen." So cute, we are all praying for you.

  8. Alex, you are so missed here in St. George. We can't wait to get you down here. You and Dane are miracles straight from God Himself.

  9. I dont know you but I was at Time Out for Women here in Las Vegas last night and Dallyn Vail Bayles sang a song about a mother praying for her son and all I could think about was you. I cant imagine as a mother the pain this has been for you to watch your son suffer. The song was amazing if you get a chance you should look it up. Best wishes to you both. And way to go Alex showing everyone that you are amazing and that your Heavenly Father has bigger plans for you here!!
