Alex has been working hard on school work the past two weeks. He still isn't back to school but is doing Packets to finish his last few credits. Last week I went to a planning meeting for Grad Night at the High School, its just around the corner (May 24th). As I sat there listening to all the fabulous creative ideas the Chairs of Grad Night had come up with, I thought, even though I'm so tired and would love to be sleeping right now after a long day at work. I'm so happy to have Alex alive and able to plan for this big night.
Alex doesn't have to go to as many doctors appointments anymore, which is nice, but now he doesn't have as much to keep him busy and entertained, today made for a long day. He misses his lunch dates and visits with his Grandparents.
Alex has always been close to my parents, even though they live in Phoenix. Since the strike, they have spent over nine weeks helping him/us, my dad was know at UMC and Dixie Hospital as "Grandpa". Two weeks ago they had to go home for my mom to have some medical tests. The test came back bad..... My moms cancer that started in her breasts eleven years ago, spread to her bones two years ago, and has now spread again. It will be awhile before they are able to come back and help out and hang out with Alex. Kaleen aka Alex's mom
