Kristen did school with Alex today FOREVER! It was a 20 page story.... with a quiz of which he made a 9 out of 10 for the first time today! HIGH FIVE ALEX! And then he had to write an essay! There are two assignments like that where he has to read a story, take quiz and then write essay. I think she spent 4 hours with him today doing school! She said it was one thing after another with having to pee, then cleaning out his trach, needing something to drink, to fixing his pillows.... his OCD kicked in big time today and it seems to get worse with his anxiety. Understandably so but Kristen is experiencing it first hand and I think it is wearing her out, lol. It's one thing to read about it and try to visualize it... it's a whole nother ball game when you are in it living it! THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU Kristen.... there is NO way I could sit with him and have the patience you do with his school work! I think I'm crazy now.... I WOULD BE DELIRIOUS FOR REAL! Alex Michael... I'm so proud of you and all that you have accomplished thus far... YOU ARE AMAZING and God is really working in your life....What a great story you will have to tell about God and his Miracle!
Girls night tonight at Theresa's ... we watch the Bachelorette on Monday's.... only Alex insisted on coming this time, lol. Cameron, Brooks and Skylar kept Alex entertained for the most part... of course Creeper came in rolling around looking for food on the kitchen counter lol... he would roll by us with his little crooked smile... eyeing the counter looking for the chocolate chip cookies :0)
Alex.... still the Life of the Party, lol!
Hoping to have new videos of Alex tomorrow during therapy and of the completed bathroom. Tomorrow we have therapy... Alex up early to start his school work.... get house ready for the fam.... signing off for now and I will leave you all with this:
“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
I CONTINUE TO FOCUS ON THE POSITIVES IN MY LIFE AND KEEP MY ATTITUDE POSITIVE.... I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENS ME! Philippians 4:13
