Cranioplasty scheduled for APRIL 22nd to repair the skull
DAY 88, Easter Sunday with Conner and Claire
Today was basically an orientation/evaluation day...tomorrow begins the test and true workout! I am very excited about the program and really feel like he will benefit tremendously and be walking in no time! I want to thank you all again for the fundraisers and donations because this would not be possible if it hadn't been for them! I have been contacted by several in the community for more fundraisers to come ..... a softball tournament.... a stunt show..... WOW.... THANK YOU...as we are not sure how many months he will need to be there. $ 9,000 a month goes fast so I can't thank you enough for your continued support and wanting to help even after we are now at home. BUILDERS CARE.... WOW.... I am in awe of you and your organization. Thank you to those of you who contacted them to see if they would help Alex out here at our home.... OMG... my house is soooo not accessible for Alex... especially his bathroom..CAN YOU SAY NIGHTMARE.... we meet with them again on Wednesday afternoon to assess the situation and see how we can make this house so that Alex can learn to be more independent and get around on his own... YAY! I'm thinking of changing my name to FRED instead of MOM, lol.... I need a little variety with my name being called every 5 seconds :o)... HOWEVER... I take myself back to day one and I LOVE HEARING THE WORD "MOM" every 5 seconds.
Randi and I are actually getting some free time tomorrow... dropping off the kid at 9 and we are OFF TO THE BEACH...HAAAAAAAAAAALELUIAH!! THANK YOU JESUS FOR REAL!! We cannot wait... OMG... we are not going to know how to act, lol! Brooks Rehab said we need to just drop and go.... ummm, you ain't gotta tell us twice... WE ARE OUTTA THERE! This will be great for Alex to see just how much mom and Randi do, lol! A nice little wake up call for Alexander the Evil twin, ha!
Signing off.... gotta get everything ready for tomorrow for Alex and myself... will keep you posted on how his day goes... hopefully we don't get any calls, lol. I feel like I am dropping my 5 year old off at daycare!!
LIVE FOR TODAY.... hopefully my pictures put things into perspective for you.... it's a true wake up call and tomorrow is not promised... my son is very fortunate as am I! I serve an awesome God and he continues to bless me daily.... speaking of which... George? ( My new BFF LSU FAN, lol)...I believe this is his name at Hanger (prosthetics in San Marco).... well he blessed Alex with a brand spanking new pair of tennis shoes to wear with his new leg /foot brace that we got today so that his brace would fit in his shoe! SEEEEE... Daily God blesses me with things that he knows need to be provided.... HE IS CONSISTENT.... believe it, trust him, thank him daily.... he is for real! THANK YOU GOD FOR ONE MORE DAY WITH MY HANDSOME BOY.... WE GOT THIS!!
