The latest update from Dean of Students Scott Brown on Alex Melchert’s recovery …
Dear Wooster Community:
I write to share a brief update on Alex’s progress. His sister said yesterday was “a very good day,” with Alex able to get out of bed and sit in a chair for a while to eat some solid food. “Alex is easily exhausted, but has been strong enough to talk on the phone with loved ones and answer some text messages,” she says. “He knows not to feel obligated to reply if he’s wiped, so students that know him are welcome to send love through that means. While pain management and stamina will be an issue for the foreseeable future, we look forward to more small improvements in his independence and the return of normalcy.”
Also, with the help of an alum, we were able to deliver all the packages and some Wooster wear to Alex. Some local Wooster families have helped support Alex’s sister with meals and laundry. They have been grateful for the support.
I hope all are enjoying the break and finding time to relax, seeing or connecting with loved ones, and even catching up on some projects. All come back safe and sound!
With my warmest wishes,
