Alex is making a remarkable recovery. He has returned to work and no longer requires the assistance of his cane. Around October 17, Alex said he woke up and felt different! He noticed that his coordination had improved and has been noticing small improvements every day. He is also able to stand without having balancing problems and jump. I am so grateful for everyone's support during this difficult time in our lives.
