This photo was taken after the first emergency surgery
So far, he has had 6 surgeries (requiring over 25 hours under) in the last 9 days and will require at least one more in the coming months. He has had skin and muscle taken from his thigh and moved to his leg. He's been unable to be moved since he got to the hospital. He couldn't eat for the first week and was living on a cocktail of IV's and pain medications.
No mother wants to get that phone call. We do have health insurance, however it doesn't cover everything and the hospital has already asked for money.
Once he is released from the hospital, he will have to go to a physical rehab facility and will be in a wheelchair for 3-6 months. Luckily he was wearing a full face helmet and riding gear, but his road to recovery will be a long and difficult process.
Alexander has always been a person who takes others and lifts them up, whether it's helping them in the gym, school, finance, or talking them through emotional stress. We've all seen or heard of his kindness towards others, even strangers. He has never been one to ask for help, but in this time, he needs it.
