Every Morning around 8am Alex would have to get a shot in his stomach - needless to say it wasn't a great way to start off his morning. The shot was to help him not get blood clots and since he wasn't up and moving around they were concerned with him getting them. Well now that he's up and about - no more shots. YEA!
Alex doesn't have PT on the weekends, but he wanted to do something with his idle time, so on Friday Alex and his PT made a schedule of exercises for him to accomplish Saturday. He did them all twice yesterday, morning and late afternoon. He pushed himself and did great. Thanks to T for coming in yesterday to help push him mentally while Alex worked physically. We have great friends who are so willing to help us with everything (and I mean everything)!!!! Thanks St. George. Thanks for all the letters that have been mailed to us from out of state, Alex has received some cute colorings from children we don't even know. Kaleen aka Alex's mom
