Home is Sweet

Alex was discharged from the hospital and as we pulled into our driveway so did Dane and Alex's 4 other close friends.  It was SO awesome to have Dane and Alex back in the "Man Cave".  It was almost surreal, like a time warp, to see them both upstairs laughing just like they had been doing 2 months ago.  They both have accomplishment SO much in the past 8 weeks- I'm SO proud of  both of them.  The past 2 months haven't been easy.

At 2:30 yesterday we went to the SCHS for all the Students to welcome Alex home.  THANKS SCHS!!!  It was a great event for Alex, I haven't seen him smile that much.  It was good to see "Alex" again (not my child in pain).

The Early Show and Good Morning America sent crews out to film this great event too.  The boys will be going to New York to do appearances on both shows with in the next month.

Alex and his friends enjoyed hanging out at home reading cards, eating pizza and just laughing.  His first day home was good, his first night home was rough. He was in a LOT of pain.  Its so difficult as a mom to watch your child cry in pain.  Alex's Grandpa sat up with him all night and rubbed his hands when he woke (about every hour).  Hope that tonight will bring more rest for him (and grandpa)


  1. Alex you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. You are so strong and an inspiration. Your heavenly father loves you and is always win you and your family. He will continue to bless and watch over you.

  2. Tears are falling on the floor here in Boise! I just watched the news clip of you (Alex) returning to school. I love it! I Love It! I LOVE IT!!

    I'm tickled pink that you'll both be going to New York! Remember what I told you about FAO Schwartz - it's a must visit! And the museums! (Hopefully you'll go when you are not in quite so much pain.) Keep an eye on the cabbies - weird.

    PARENTS: Tell the networks that Alex and Dane MUST travel in first class with a companion if not the rest of the family. There is no way they will make it in regular coach seating. The networks will accommodate!! (and it's super cool)

    The sleepless nights due to pain will subside. You are going through the same thing that I did!! I had to have someone rub my hands and forearms for hours at night. IT WILL GO AWAY!! I promise.

    I'm so excited for you I'm just beside myself!!

    Lots of hugs and positive mojo coming your way!
