I wanted to update all of you about Dane's progress.
He has been able to eat without as much pain in the last few days so we are encouraged even though he had lost 1.5 pounds at his last weigh-in (Thursday). He also saw his Nutritionist Friday and had an Acupuncture session to help with digestion. He is feeling well enough to go with his friends to visit Alex in the hospital, and he is in Mesquite NV right now watching the SC High School Debate competition. I'm thinking that friends are one of the best medicines for Dane right now...
This photo is from Dane's Physical therapy on Friday morning, they said it was his best one yet! :)
I thought I would also show you the "Reverse Mohawk" he is sporting. It's actually starting to grow out a little bit (it was singed to his scalp and burned the skin underneath). Good thing he had a lot of hair so he could cover it up!
The burns on his feet are healing pretty well too, the body is an amazing thing. His sister took this picture on her cell phone and couldn't wait to delete it, lol.
We are very grateful to all of you for supporting these boys on this blog. They can feel the love and so can we as parents!
Welcome friends and family of Alex and Dane!
