Cale is still fighting, his body is healing and now we need him to wake up. Yesterday they put a cooling blanket on him to the keep his fever down. After they bathed him last night his heart rate shot up and he started to shiver uncontrollably, so they have added a heating blanket that blows warm air on him. His body temperature on the inside is being kept cool and his outside body temperature is being kept warm. We may know more after the doctors make their rounds this morning. I want to make sure that everyone understands that they removed his ventilator tube several days ago, but the tracheotomy tube is still in. The doctors had thought about removing the tracheotomy tube, but have decided to wait on that until they have the pneumonia under control. Once they remove the tracheotomy, Cale will be breathing entirely on his own.
The biggest miracle that God has shown us so far, is that Cale survived this accident. Looking at pictures of the car ( I have not seen the car, but everyone else has), it doesn't look that bad, because the top of the car has been cut off. When I got on a plane in Pasco, WA to come here, the doctors had told me that Cale's prognosis was not very good. I have been here a week now and the micro-mini baby step miracles that happen every day are just a continuation of the really big one. I am in awe of my Father the great healer, he has been my rock & my strength for the last week. This morning I was able to send a message to the marine who sat & talked with Kathleen, keeping her calm until help arrived. One more blessing He has bestowed on us. Thank you Lord, for your divine intervention.
