Update - Joy

Today I have the honor of sitting in Cale's room all day. Kathleen & Kathy had to go to Fort Bragg to take care of some things.
I have been sitting by Cale's bed singing praise songs for him, talking to him and just watching him breathe. I have watched as he raised his arm as if to say good morning. He was moving his hand back & forth on the pillow as I sang softly. When the nurse came in to take blood samples, give him medicine & reposition him in bed, Cale's right eye started to flutter, but never actually opened. Today they have shut off the cooling blanket, to see if Cale's temperature will remain down. If his temperature begins to rise they will turn the blanket back on. There is nothing else to report at this time, but I will let everyone know as soon as there is. My Father is sitting with me as I sing praises to Him who has the power to heal.

    Hallelueah!!! He is doing better and better every day. I believe that Jesus is working a miracle in that young mans body for the whole world to see. He is hearing our prayers and Cale is going to wake up. Sing a song of joy sing a song of praise. Amen amen amen. Thank you for the praise report. We love you all and are in constant prayer for all of you.

    "Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
    Wait upon the Lord
    We will wait upon the Lord
    Our God, You reign forever
    Our Hope, our strong Deliverer
    You are the everlasting God
    The everlasting God
    You do not faint, You won't grow weary
    You're the defender of the weak
    You comfort those in need
    You lift us up on wings like eagles"
