SCHS Cross Country Party
Alex had a big day Sunday - he had about 10 visitors which ended up being way too many. His spirits loved seeing each and every one of you (and about 10 people stopped in while he was napping that he didn't even get to see) but his Neurons didn't love the stimulation all the visitors brought. He was cut off from visitors Monday and Tuesday afternoon to prepare him for his Cross Country Party. One of his Coaches works for the hospital and was able to arrange to have their year end party at the hospital. The team ate pizza and visited, then just before the slide show and awards Alex was brought into the room so that he could enjoy some time with his teammates. He was in pain, but he enjoyed it. He actually smiled and cracked a few jokes. I think it was good for all the kids to see him. Even though he is "different" from the last time they ran with him, he looks good and is in great spirits. SCHS Cross Country team participated in State a few weeks ago, since Alex couldn't attend, they blew a picture up of Alex and glued it to pop cycle sticks and "took" him with them on the trip. I cant wait to see all the pictures, I hear he had a great time. I did see a few of the photos, there was one of him by the bus at the Maverick Country Store, one of him in a field of sunflowers. His team wore stickers that said Alex on their jerseys while they ran. Thanks for all the love and support - his team showed team spirit and what true athletes are made of. These kids are Warrior Strong! Thanks. Kaleen aka Alex's mom (photo from a meet last year)
