Alec’s First of Possibly Many Interviews
I decided to take a break from writing and created a video instead. It took us three tries to get it right. The first one lasted about 10 seconds before we restarted. The second take was going well until Riley, our camera guy, realized he wasn’t actually taking a video. Then we stuck with the third try. The video is an interview with Alec. He looks good on screen! Comment below with questions you want me to ask Alec in future interviews. I forgot to turn on the fire in the background though I think that would have been a good touch, right?
I Am Back From Rexburg
It’s good to be home. It’s good to be around my family, and to be hanging out with Alec again. It sucked being away from Al and knowing all the treatments and crud he had to deal with while I was gone. It was difficult to think about what he was going through and only being able to hear about it without being able to do anything to help. I am not even afraid to say that I cried sometimes. Let me tell you guys something though. Since I have been home, it has been a lot easier to deal with this stuff. Yeah, Alec feels like crap most the time, but I rarely see him without a smile on his face. Sometimes he will give you a tired worn out face, but it is never a face of discouragement or a face that looks like he has conceded. Alec is the strongest and happiest kid I know. When I see him and am with him I am a stronger person. I feel like I can overcome anything with him around. I love hanging out with that kid!
On another note. Al’s brother, Riley, is getting married in a few weeks. We are excited for him, but it will be tough to have him move out of the house. He has been super good to have around for Alec. He spoils him with gifts, because he is rich, and loses to Al in video games all the time.
One More Round Of Chemo
We have one more round of chemo at the beginning of next month and then one more MRI before they decide if they are going to switch from chemo treatments to radiation treatments. The next round of chemo is going to fall on Al’s b-day So, we are trying to come up with something fun to do on his birthday while he is doing the chemo thing. WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are open to some ideas for what we should do for him on his b-day! Comment below if you have any suggestions for us.
