First of all, I want to echo the sentiments of gratitude that Kaleen posted yesterday regarding the Benefit Concert on Monday night at Tuacahn. Words really can't express how grateful we are to all the individuals involved in putting that show together for our boys. That was an amazing group of talented and generous people and we appreciate you all very much. I know some of the first responders, EMTs and hospital staff were there to be honored as well and we thank you for taking the time to come but mostly for your hand in saving Alex & Dane's lives. Every step that day and the days following are making all the difference in their ongoing recoveries, we will always be thankful!
To all of you that came to support the show, and made the baked goods, sold t-shirts, made and distributed fliers…Thank you so much, it has been very touching for Dane.
Dane is still having some problems with his digestive system. He was referred to a gastrointestinal Dr. yesterday and also had a CT scan of his abdomen and pelvis, we are still waiting for the results. He had to cancel his physical therapy sessions because of the pain, and he has lost another two pounds in just one day. The Dr said that it was possible that he might need a feeding tube to bypass his Pancreas; we are praying that it doesn't get to that point. It is hard to see him in so much pain (even on pain meds) because he has never been a complainer. As I said, it is ongoing. With all that has happened it is hard to believe it has only been two weeks since the strike...it's feels like an eternity!
Heartfelt thanks for your love, prayers & thoughts.
