January 16th

Alex has been resting most of the day and the doctors have decreased his meds so that he can come around and be more alert to respond to certain stimulus. He is opening both eyes today, a little sluggish at times but by the end of today most of meds should have worn off. He is still scheduled for trach either Monday or Tuesday... Doctor will decide on Monday. Nurse noticed today that he had rapid eye movement when lids are closed which tells them he is dreaming :0)~

Please continue to pray to reduce swelling of brain and esophogus and to heal the inside to match whats going on the outside. He is still fighting strong and maybe that one step back was so that we could take two steps forward!

Again, we thank you for all of the love and support you continue to pour over our family.... I can't wait for Alex to get to the point where he can read all of your emails, fb posts, cards, journal entries and letters. I tell him every night how popular we are now and how awesome it is to see his face EVERYWHERE! He is my miracle boy and God is still making miracles happen every second he is breathing!

God Bless ya'll!
