What an emotional day for me today!  A very thankful happy emotional day!  WOW!  3 hours to making it 83 days later to his 17th birthday!  THANK YOU GOD!!  How awesome is today and every day that he lives and breathes!!  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU GOD!  Today was a supercalifragilisticexpealadocious day!!  Soooo in awe that my boy is still here today and recovering so well from what the doctors said he would not survive!  God you are awesome and I am very very thankful to have you in my life performing miracles daily in my son's life. Tomorrow is a big day for us... please say some prayers for our visit to Vitarbo and hope that she can schedule his surgery tomorrow for thursday or friday!

He had a great birthday today..... surprise lunch visit from some jaguar players.... GREAT GREAT VISIT!  Laughter, smiles, jokes..... those who know Alex... you know what a "ham" he can be and he hammed it up today!!  He was just hanging out with his buddies .... telling jokes.... laughing... amazing to see his little crooked smile and his face light up the way it does!!


Our awesome friend Ryan who makes this all possible!

Tonight we were able to check him out and go to his favorite restaurant for the BDAY DINNER... Okinawa at the Roosevelt Mall on 17... Weeeesssssssstsiiiiiiiiiiiiiide, lol!  Tonight was also jokes and smiles again... just like the old days!  

 (Alex's famous brownie face that he came up with, lol)


Alex calls her... "Carly the Cop.. My Boo"

Today I felt like Alex was back to his old self!  Tomorrow that may change lol.  Today he loved me and Randi and it was a fantastic day!  He ate sushi and then steak and shrimp and said he really enjoyed his birthday today!  He is passed out cold and has been since just before 9:00 pm... he had a ball today hanging out with his new friends... Atiyyah Ellison #99, Daryl Smith # 52, Clint Ingram #51, Cecil Newton #64 and Julius Williams #90... Thank you guys so much for coming and surprising him on his birthday and for taking his mind off of his daily grind.  He really really enjoyed just hanging out and he can't wait to come hang out at the stadium!  YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME and I can't thank you enough for just bringing a smile to my handsome boys face!  That is few and far between these days so I welcome the ray of sunshine that you brought into his room today....again... thank you so very much for taking time out of your busy day to see Alex.

Tomorrow is our big dr visit.... please say a quick prayer tomorrow that all goes well and we can schedule the surgery.  Hope you enjoy our pics as much as I enjoy looking at them.... Alex is slowly coming around to being his same old crazy little firecracker self that he always was and today it was awesome to see the light in his eyes.  Lord I pray that tomorrow we find him the same way.... as I never know which Alex I am going to get from one day to the next!

And I must share this because he had us cracking up... spicy little buggar he is... asked Angie the other day if she wanted to share his brownie "Lady and the Tramp style".... hahahahahha.  He always gives Ronnie heck about how he is going to steal her away from him because he is almost legal now and he better watch out... even calls Ronnie, "Rodney" sometimes to get his goat, lol!  There is no filter on my child and the things that come out of his mouth never cease to amaze me!  Angie and Ronnie are the family that Brooks is staying with for those of you who don't know them :0)

Signing off to get some sleep....
