Monday November 1, 2010
Tonight is the Anniversary eve of the Strike - I think back to what we were doing 4 weeks ago. It was Family Night and raining, Alex's 2 younger brothers were in their bathing suits playing football in the street. Parker, ran into the house and said "Mom can I get struck by lightning?" I replied "well technically you could, but you wont" he smiled and ran back out into the rain and finished playing. Less than 24 hours later I got "the call" telling me that Alex had been struck by lightning. The Principle told me he was with another boy, and I wasn't too surprised when I heard it was Dane. Alex and Dane were always together. I've tried to Thank everyone that has helped us and him (from meals, rides nursing care, doctors, EMT's, teachers, students etc), but as I read this blog, I keep finding out that there are SO many more people out there that have helped with Alex's progress. And Progress is what he is doing. He is getting better every day. He is determined to be out of the hospital in 2 weeks. He's getting great training and has a positive outlook, he just might make his goal. Thank you for everything you have done and will do. I'm grateful this tragedy has brought so much good. People bonding together. Thank you! Kaleen aka Alex's mom
