Alex slept Monday night until 4:30am Tuesday. I left for work at 7:30am and when I came home last night it was like seeing another person. Alex was feeling SO much better. He had half the amount of pain pills than he did the day before and was feeling 2 times better. Only things that were different from Monday was One- we weren't in Vegas anymore (sorry Vegas, he dose not like that city) and Two- he had a treatment from the Calmare machine from Dr. Chalmers. I got home last night and Dane and 2 other friends were over. They were watching a movie having a good time. Its so great to see Alex with friends.
Thanks for all the comments - I really appreciate them!!!! They get us through the day.
Alex had PT and OT today. He is doing so much better. Its at a snales pace though which is frustrating sometimes, but its a steady pace none the less. He hasn't used his wheel chair in a few days!! Wahoo! Today when we got to PT, he walked in, its such a great sight!
Oh and the smoke smell in our house only exists in Kiels room now (poor Kiel). Dave cut the burned carpet area out of his floor its small - we think we will just patch work some new carpet in (poor Kiel) lol. Have a good night - Kaleen aka Alex's mom
