Update on Alec, It's been 1 year since we returned from Switzerland form Alec's 1st stem cell treatment, it is 3 months since his 2nd treatment, We have seen so much progress in sensation awakening throughout his body and upper shoulders, chest and back muscles now reacting and firing. The down side is the new pain and discomfort Alec is feeling. Alec describes it feels like ants crawling through his skin with the sensation returning and then the feeling of entrapment within his body. This past weekend was extremely difficult on Alec, Saturday he experienced a severe anxiety panic attack from all the pain and discomfort. It was difficult watching him go through this. Thank God for his mom "mary" who helped Alec relax and regain control. To make matters worse for Alec we are struggling with nursing coverage again and he just cannot find one he trusts to care for him when me or Mary are not around. Prayers for Alec to have peace from within this week. ... See MoreSee Less

Update on Alec's progress over the past month or so. Alec continues to show some real good progress in gaining sensation throughout his body. His upper shoulders and back are continuing to show lots of development. Alec can now pull back with his arms releasing his shoulder blades when you lift his arms straight out. This motion comes through his upper back and shoulders. Very inspiring to see the progress and feel movement that was not there since the accident.
The down side to all that is happening is that Alec now feels much more pain and discomfort in his body. Body aches can be a constant uncomfortable feeling that can be both mentally and physically draining on Alec. One of the toughest aspects of caring for Alec is the mental mindset he can be in that may change by the hour. For the most part he handles things very well but there are those days. No one will ever understand what Alec or we as a family go through on a daily basis unless you live a day in our shoes. I know i could not personnaly handle everything without Mary or Kylie. Together we make a pretty solid team. Following so many other families and their journeys you see we all deal with so many of the same issues in caring for our loved ones. One of the hardest things is when someone tries to judge our family and can say something so inappropriate that you want to stay away from social media. This of course is not fair to all of you who have shown so much support to us over the past few years. Unless you walk in someone shoes it's best not to judge.

Susie SmalleyWe pray daily and always ask God for his Mercy for our SCI friends and always by name and not lot some. We're thrilled to learn of Alec's progress but so sorry it is accompanied with pain. Greg was very depressed until they took him off 7 meds. prescribed to help him sleep and for pain and anxiety. Now he's back to his normal thinking and the terrible depression is gone. Maybe the doctor should review Alec's meds. It may not be meds but it is an avenue worth considering. Tell Alec he has friends he's not aware of who are praying for him and cheering him on as well as being inspired by him and his parents👍🙏🏻💕.2 months ago · 2
