Had our weekly meeting with the doctor and Alex's made great improvements since last week with several things.  Assisting with dressing, transfer from chair to bed and/or mat for therapy sessions, expressing emotions, taking steps, bathroom etc.  However... Monday is when the whole attitude anger situation started and that has hindered his sleep and attentiveness.  He started seeing psychologist yesterday and that will continue now for 3-4 times a week.  He is really scared of being alone in room, paranoid someone will come to "finish him off" as he put it, worried about not waking up in the mornings... just alot of things going on in that brain of his....He is having flashbacks of blood on his face and constantly asks to see a mirror because he feels blood dripping on his face!  NO WONDER HE DOESN'T WANT TO SHUT HIS EYES!!!  They have extended our release date to March 26th which is awesome because that is another week of therapy, also psychologist and closer to walking!  We don't want to go home with a wheelchair if we don't have too!

He will now be walking on the treadmill every m-w-f so this should be interesting, lol!  We are going to an outing with Brooks on Saturday to the bowling alley... have to get him some earplugs so that he can really enjoy himself!  I am like a parent with their 5 year old invited to his first bowling bday party lol!  HAPPY HE GETS TO GET OUTTA HERE AND ENJOY HIMSELF!

Please pray for Alex and the whole Pro Day thing with Tebow as that has not been approved just yet and there are some things we still need to work out in order for him to be able to go!  GOD GRANT HIM THIS WISH PLEASE.... pave the way so that Alex can have this once in a lifetime chance to hang out with his idol for one day on the sidelines.... I trust that you can make it happen so "do your thang"!!!  The devil is trying to take it away.... but we stand strong!  God is all around those two young men and I know in my heart he will make it happen for Alex!

Alex is getting his shower now... I am signing off to get some rest as soon as he falls asleep!  See ya'll tomorrow!

PLEASE NO VISITORS TOMORROW....He is having a very intense psychological evaluation at 3:00pm and I just need some down time for HIM!
