On the road again...(recovery)

We are so happy to have Alex and his parents back in St. George. The boys have a lot of healing to do but I am so grateful to have them both here and on the road to a full recovery!
Dane is still having some issues with weight loss and we are trying other medications for his stomach spasms and pain. It's hard to make him eat when it immediately causes him to feel like "there is glass in his stomach" (his description). He has been to two Doctors and the ER (and had many tests) since we've been back but still no definite answers, although I was encouraged to find out that our family Dr. had treated a lightning strike victim before...he said it will be a process.
Hopefully before long, these two will be doing some catch up homework just to stimulate their brilliant minds. At the very least, Dane wants to visit Alex as soon as he is up to it, I'm sure it will be very soon.
Much gratitude for continued prayers!!!
Leslie

  2. Thanks Leslie for the update on Zane. Hope the docs can figure out something for his stomach soon! I check this site every day to see how your boys are doing. Zane and Alex and your families are in my prayers. A mom

  3. Please give Dane a H-U-G-E hug for me and let him know that I think about him everyday! My strike left me, too, with super weird sensations and digestive issues. Portions of the body need to be retrained in the most basic forms of function. (it's ridiculous!) Tell Dane to hang in there and try to "flow" with the re-learning curve. I know it can be painful.

    I am SO glad that Alex is back home! His recovery will be very dependent upon friends and family participation.

    I would love to meet all of you someday!! Be well. Love each other. LAUGH A LOT!!

  4. I'm Melody Dickson I work for the non-profit called Red Rock Center for Independence. We assist people with disabilities to live independently and participate equally. While these kids are in recovery we may be able to provide them free services (all of our services are free). Take a look at our website www.rrci.org for details on what we provide. Our agency isn't well known in town, but we've been helping people for years. Call me if you have any questions. I can be reached at 673*7501, which is our main line at the Center. We also have a Facebook page. That link can be found on our homepage.

  5. To the parents of Alex and Dane. Your story caught my attention when it happened and I wanted you to know my Prayer Group at Church is praying for the boys complete recovery. I'm sure other groups are praying for them, too.

  6. We are always so glad to get an update on both boys. Even though we don't know you we feel as though we do because of this blog. Please know how much we are praying for Alex and Dane's full recovery and will continue to do so. They have truly beaten some incredible odds, and now just need to keep going. Hang in there and be strong! GOD BLESS YOU!
