Alex update from BIL

Another tough day for the boy. Yesterday they stuffed his wound with gauze. They shoved gauze up into his abdominal cavity. Today the removal of the gauze was excruciating. Alex was given morphine for pain but said it felt like he was being stabbed in his stomach.He was able to get a little rest after but remained in pain. Mom and grandpa got here for a visit. He was very happy to see mom and grandpa. It was time for Him to get out of bed. Today was the hardest day for him to get out of bed. It was very painful. Once again with tears flowing he was able to force himself up. He is a trooper. He was unable to walk very far today. His pain was mostly in his testicles.We got back to the room and he watch Night at the Museum. Which gave him many laughs. Alex's has been having cramps in his legs. Mom rubbed his legs with lotion and I washed him up with a wash cloth. I think this made grandpa jealous. He said he didn't get care like that when he was in the hospital.He has walked twice today. Going to try for one more today! Thanks everyone for supporting us.
LOVE YOU ALEX, HOPE YOUR PIG GETS THERE SOON.

Just wanted to let you know I'm reading and praying for Alex ... I cringe with every update, it all sounds unbelievably painful. Tell him our family is thinking of him ...
