My son

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

My son Alex is an amazing 16year old getting ready to start his junior year of high school. My, how fast time goes. I remember when he fit so snuggly in my arms. I miss it. Somedays I really wish I could go back.

Very close to a year go my son was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis. Today he is about halfway to where he needs to be. He is gaining the bone density back,slowly. But thank God it is coming back. Still his spine is very thin and weak. Also very underweight. He is on a plan to gain a pound a week. Which he isn't gaining. He is 5'5" and weighs about 95 pounds. It was so easy for me to gain weight but so hard for him.

He is a very happy well mannered teenager with the kindest heart I know. It is an amazing journey watching him grow to the man that he will be.
