Sorry for not updating for a while it’s been pretty busy. I don’t even know if too many people actually read this anymore but I promised to keep everyone updated, so update I will.
Alex is still finding his way, he still has moments of great sadness but overall he is coming along. He is back at cadets and is loving that, Lucas has even joined up now so having his little brother along is pretty great. That was something that both Lucas and Alex very much looked forward to sharing so still being able to do that is really amazing, the CO at cadets made sure that Alex had special duties and that he can continue for as long as he wants. Alex has even been practicing on the full pipes again so there could be hope yet.
A couple weeks ago Alex also starting playing sledge hockey they practice a couple times a week it was a very rough start to begin with but he is really coming along now and the physical activity is doing him a world of good.
As time goes on and we get closer to his birthday I worry about his emotional and mental well-being but over all he has been an absolute trouper, he has even gotten the ball rolling on other areas of life that I would not have thought he would want to tackle but he wheels in head first most of the time and gives it a go.
