With overwhelming feelings of gratitude to Hashem, we are grateful to report to all of you who took such a deep, personal interest in Alexander's wellbeing - especially to you, dear Kinderlach - that our heartfelt Tefilos/Prayers have pierced the gates of Shamayim.
Over Shabbos we have seen a miraculous improvement in Alexander's condition and health.
Alexander's doctors removed most of the life support machines he was connected to. They removed the respirator/breathing tube - he is B"H breathing on his own.
Over Shabbos, Alexander has been able to eat on his own. He has been able to talk to and smile with his doctors and loved ones.
The doctors feel that the situation is now under control and they are optimistic.
Alexander's doctors are saying that they have no doubt that the prayers on his behalf have accomplished this turnaround.
The situation is still being considered by the doctors as "Critical"!
Chaza"l tell us that ״מחשבה טובה הקב״ה מצרפה למעשה״ - when a person has a good thought or a thought to DO something good, Hashem considers it as if it was already DONE (Hashem JOINS the "good thought" with the "deed").
KLAL YISRAEL AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU INDIVIDUALLY!: You have been a tremendous encouragement to us during this difficult time and you have inspired us to tears. We have received hundreds of emails informing us of your Tefilos/prayers on Alexander's behalf, your good wishes, your blessings. Thousands of Hachlatos Tovos (good resolutions) in Torah and in Mitzvos have been emailed to us.
We have sent EVERY Hachlatah Tova we received, to be placed at the Lubavitcher Rebbe's Tziyon (gravesite).
Whoever had sent us their name and mother's name - we forwarded it to be mentioned in prayer to Hashem at Kivrei Tzadikim.
Sitting in Alexander's hospital room since Thursday, are a pile of hundreds of those Hachlatos Tovos.
From the many emails, phone calls and reports we received, it seems that tens of thousands of our brethren have taken Alexander's situation deeply to heart and have been moved to additional prayer and Torah and Mitzvos on his behalf. We are humbled by this.
Please, keep Davening, keep saying Tehilim - L'Zchus Shneur Chaim Yitzchak Alexander ben Nechama Dina b'Toch Klal Yisrael. Again, we are certain in our Bitachon that, together with Shneur Chaim Yitzchak Alexander ben Nechama Dina, there will be many many more Yeshuos and Teshuos for so many of our brethren in Klal Yisrael who are in need of Yeshuah and Hatzalah.
Please continue to ACT on those Hachlatos Tovos that you've taken upon yourselves - those good resolutions that Hashem has already "joined" to your good thoughts.
You can also go to www.3millionmitzvahs.com to accept to do one extra Mitzvah a day - in Alexander's merit.

May this Achdus of so many thousands of people, moved to "Ahavas Chinam" - אהבת חנם - ("Gratuitous love") to its full degree - for one they had never even met! - be a catalyst to counter and completely nullify the cause of this long, dark Galus/Exile (which, as Chaza"l say, was sin'as chinam - שנאת חנם) and completely transform these days of traditional mourning (ימי בין המצרים) in to days of celebration (as the Rambam writes) with the coming of Moshiach NOW!
