In the course of writing our story, which appears in this week's Independent, (Feb. 28, 2018) about Alexander Rudnicki's court case, we heard from his mother, Pamela, who gave us an update on how the boy, who suffered brain damage during a botched birth at Memorial Hospital, is doing.

The 12-year-old attends school on Fort Carson, where he is in the 6th grade, she says.

"Alex is doing well," she says in an email. "Still receiving Occupational, Physical and Speech therapies from the amazing people at The Shandy Clinic. He spends most of the school day in special education, and we are blessed with an amazing teacher and supportive staff. While he will have a lifetime of struggles we are grateful how lucky we are to have him and how blessed we truly are."

She also expressed gratitude to the jury in her son's case, who held the doctor, Peter Bianco, responsible and "helped to make sure Alex will be taken care of in the future."

We first wrote about the case in August 2017 after the jury awarded the child $4 million. That verdict has been altered downward, but pre-judgment interest of $1.1 million has been added. Read the rest of the story of how Alex's case could set precedent at the Colorado Supreme Court here.
