Hi - this is Alex's mom. Its Friday 4:30am Vegas time. First I want to THANK everyone for ALL the support that has been shown to these 2 amazing boys. THANK you to the "First Response" people, without your quick efforts our Alex and Dane wouldn't be here. YOU saved their lives!! When I get back to STG I want to personally thank each of you that preformed CPR. Thank you STG City Rescue Team, IHC and UMV. These employees have gone far beyond their "job" responsibilities to help our boys. Thanks to ALL the students for the out pouring of love and support. So many thanks to give!!!!! Students and the Community - Your prayers are being answered.
Yesterday Alex and Dane were both taken off Life Support. Prior to Dane being taken off he was writing messages back and forth to his parents. Alex can talk now that the tubes are out of his mouth, he keeps saying he wants to go home. A conversation yesterday between him and his nurse...Nurse: "Whats your name?" Alex: "Alex" Nurse: "How old are you?" Alex: "Seventeen" Nurse: "What are your brothers names?" Alex: "Kiel, Jordan, Parker" Nurse: "Do you know where you are?" Alex: "Stuck in this bed"!!!!!!!!!!! He's got a lot of fight in him. He and Dane will both be fine.
Keep praying. Miracles DO happen!!! Thanks again for the support!!!!!!!!!!
