Tens Unit $795 - Tub Transfer Bench $79 - Having Alex Home Priceless

When Alex got to PT on Friday who did he see?? Dane! Dane has been going to PT since October and today their appointments were at the same time. As they were going into the gym an older lady saw them (who was also a patient) and said "These must be our Lightning Boys". Yes, I believe thats what they have become, St. George's very own Lightning Boys. They both work really hard during their PT visits and are exhausted when their time is up . I'm so grateful for all the people that have and continue to help Alex. We have met so many talented, smart and caring people. Thanks to the Acute Rehab Unit here, the skills they taught Alex for 4 weeks are what are getting him through his days. He's doing amazing. We had a great weekend. Managed to get through the 4 appointments Friday so well, that we are going to 4 again today. Happy Monday everyone. 


  1. Lightning boys is COOL! What about designing a T-SHIRT for all the Snow Canyon students. Something like: I remember the Lightening boys???

    I would like to clone your community. What a great bunch of caring people!

  2. I became known as the Lighting Lady around here. Funny how those monikers appear out of nowhere and tend to stick whether you like them or not. I decided to play along and ordered a personalized license plate for my car. It says STRUCK.

    You look less than enthused to be at therapy.

    You're just too cute for words.

    If we all ever connect with one another, remind me to leave my daughter at home!

    From one survivor to two others: I'm so proud of you both. Way to tell Mother Nature, "Good effort, Sweet Pea! But you can take a flyin' leap!"

    Love you guys!
