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.

Continue the prayers for our son, Progress is happening daily, saw this photo and reminds us of Alec's love for music

Pat GoldmanSo enjoy your messages and feelings that happen on a daily bases at the Goldman household💖💞❤️❤️❤️ Love, hugs and prayers always, Mom4 hours ago
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 hours ago

THANK YOU TO ALL THAT ATTENDED OUR GOLDMANSTRONG 3RD ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT

A huge thank you to all that joined us for the GoldmanStrong Golf tournament. To our all of our sponsors, golfers, family and friends this would not have been such a huge success without all of you.

A special thank you to Katie Wayland, Miss Beach Cities, Ellen Beckett, Miss Anaheim Court, Casey Fleckenstein, Miss Yorba Linda and Alana Hamilton, Miss Placentia for their grace and professionalism and for taking the time to volunteer their time for this wonderful event supporting Alec. You help was so very much appreciated on so many levels. As representatives of your cities they should be extremely proud.

To see Alec 1 year later the strength and joy on his face to see all of you there supporting him on his journey is so well worth it all. Bob, Mary and Kylie, you all are so amazing. Your dedication to your family and to strive everyday to make sure Alec's dream comes true we all admire. Just know that you have the support of all of us each and every day.

Again, from the Goldman's and all the volunteers, we can't thank you enough and hope to see you all again next year and see how much further Alec has come on his journey.
