Really?!?!

Alex had a C1 C2 subloxation. They realigned his vertebra, and all is well. Really! Well! his neck is fine! Doctor spiner took the brace off, and said to call if he gets locked into one position. Otherwise we wont see him again!
He fell almost 3 feet onto his head, and he is going to be fine!
No traction, unless he locks in place, just stretches, and strengthening his muscles.
Everyday he had on the brace was like three days of not using his muscles. So 12 days of weakening.
He is in a LOT more pain with out the support of the brace. A LOT. Lots of crying going on. I'm so sad for him and so happy too!
I did not think I would get everything I was hoping fo! No traction, no hospital stay, and brace off! Really?!?! I get it all?!?!?!
Such a burden lifted!
Thank you to everyone who has had ALex on their minds and hearts, and me too! I mean it!
Better go, Alex hurts, but it is going to be ok!

What a great thing. I have been trying to trust God to arrange things over here, to pick the "right" day for Mal's surgery, etc. NOT that I am doing so great at that, but I said I'm "trying," right? I hope you can see ways that his new surgery day is exactly right for him. That you will love the anesthesiologist he has, the nurses. And that you won't worry (much) in advance.

YAY! So thankful that he is doing well and you can focus on the surgery coming up. I looked at that blog with the traction picture- ugh, that looks awful... I can't even imagine Deacon in that and we could explain it to him. SO GRATEFUL that Alex didn't have to do that!

Love ya girl.
