|Balloon Launch at Chris's Memorial|
We attended Dane's dad's Memorial Service this morning. We said our goodbyes and hope for a brighter future for all those that have been touched by Chris's life.
Tonight was a big night for the students of SCHS - Its Jr. Prom and Alex took an amazing family friend, McKenna. Her mom and I have been friends since we were in the 8th grade back in Ohio. She and I were roommates during college and both of us wound up in St. George to raise our families. It's here that McKenna and Alex struck up their friendship again while attending the same HS and running on the Cross Country team. The theme for Prom was a Masquerade and the masks matched her beautiful dress perfectly.
Alex did great at PT this week. He actually ran. Yes Ran!!!!!!! He wore a secure belt around his waist and his PT and Grandpa each held onto him and they ran up and down the hall. Wahoo!!! He also was able to play Kinect on his Xbos for the first time. His movements are still real jerky but he's doing it, he's moving and working hard everyday to gain back his mobility. If we could just get his hands and fingers to work!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sure that will come, until then he is learning to adapt and is becoming very self reliant. Grateful for everyone that has and continues to help us out. Kaleen aka Alex's mom
