|Our St. George Rainbow returns and gives us hope|
Alex's grandpa is back in town and has been taking Alex to his appointments the past 2 days. Alex has been doing so much better and his pain level has gone down a lot, mostly due to the nerve pain treatments he's been receiving from Spero. How can I be sure of this??? Because if he misses a day or two his pain is intense, more intense than "normal". Alex didn't get treatment Saturday or Sunday and we didn't sleep much Sunday night. KSL sent their Health and Science Reporter Ed Yates to St. George yesterday to do a story on the Calmare MC-5A machine, Alex was present during the interview. I'm looking forward to seeing it (not sure when it will air,but will post it when it does).
I'm really looking forward to Christmas. A reader of this blog sent Alex an AMX Gift Card, very very kind and unexpected. (Thank YOU!!) We went to the mall Friday night - Alex was a little hesitant to go in his wheel chair, but once we were inside he did great. He decided that he wanted to use his gift card to buy his siblings and dad presents. I was very impressed with his thoughtfulness. Someone gave to him and he in return gave to others. I hope that this is the first of many giving experience Alex will have in his life. I hope that through all of this misery he will learn to be of good cheer.
Alex saw one of his friends at the mall he yelled out his name - the guy turned around and looked at me and said who called me? Alex said "look down here" (Alex was sitting in his wheel chair) the guy looked down and said "ALEX, you're Alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" He was so happy to see him. We are all happy to see Alex and that he is alive.
