Tuesday 11-9-10 - Alex

It was like Christmas this week (and its only Tuesday).  Sunday the boys got their Twin Lab gift baskets, Monday Alex was given a Power Balance Band (http://www.balanceband.com/) then today Fallen (http://www.fallenfootwear.com/)  sent Shoes, T-shirts, Hats, Wallets, Backpacks, Socks and Hoodies for the boys.  Alex was wearing his favorite pair of Fallen shoes when he was struck (which they don't make anymore), his step dad contacted Fallen to see if they might have an extra pair of that style lying around their warehouse that we could get (Alex doesn't like change).  They didn't have that style but they said they would be happy to send both boys lots of products, which they did today.  It was also like Christmas for me today, Alex "walked" down the hall.  I didn't get to see it, but his PT said he did great!  I'll take the gift of recovery all day long!  I also talked to our friend "the Proffessor from Vegas"  he is looking forward to Alex getting out of the hospital and said he would come give a lecture on Lightning here in STG.  Thanks to everyone who has helped with the boys recovery.

  2. The boys will be stylin' back at school in the new skids! Those fallen guys are like major skate pro's. How did they hear about it? Just really happy about how cool they are to send these guys the kicks!

  3. Yeah, yeah, YEAH for walking!!! Kudos to Alex for working hard with rehab! These guys are nothing short of amazing and they deserve all the swag they can get! I haven't posted before because my mind runs wild with everything I want to say but I've found it impossible to put in words all that I have felt and witnessed with regards to this "event." That said, not a day has gone by that I haven't thought of all of you or checked this blog to track the progress and thankfully, with more than a few challenges along the way, there is always progress. Know that all of you are loved more than you can ever know and this incident puts a lot of things in perspective for the rest of us. We are Warrior Strong, and we're all stronger because of you!

  5. Walking? WALKING!! That is too cool! Keep going, Alex, keep going!

    I am loving the swag! (I, too, was wearing a pair of shoes that were discontinued - that I had purchased about 10 years prior to getting struck. They were Salomon hiking shoes and were in perfect condition before and AFTER my strike. They had plastic eyelets and hooks for the laces and had thick soles. I wrote Salomon a thank you letter because they stood up to Mother Nature and really protected my feet.) Super cool that those companies sent you some goodies as well as healthful things.

    Keep working hard and pushing through your recovery! Hugs for both of you!
