Update - TJ

In with Cale right now. It's the first night since Joe left but Cale's helped me through it. It had been a quiet night until around 5 AM when the nurses came in and woke him up a little. He's been moving his hands and chomping his jaw (which kills me every time). Watching him move just reminds me that he's always been a fighter and he's not take it easy. He kept trying to grab at the lines connected to his hand and remove them. I know he's still in a coma, yet I reminded him that Kathleen was going to be here in a few hours and he needed to keep his strength till then. Within seconds stopped pulling and slowly began to close his eye and fall back asleep.

The hardest part about all of this is just waiting. I keep expecting him to just wake up and be himself but the reality of it is that it's going to be a slow process. I can't wait for Kathleen to get here, she's been so excited the last couple days with him moving around. I know today's going to be a great day for the both of them.

  4. Thank you for your post, TJ. When I read about his movement I got a feeling of excitment in the pit of my stomach. Knowing that Cale is a fighter with a strong personality, you just know he is not going to give up. He is definately on the mend. I imagine his doctors having to remind him to take it easy, when he wakes up. I imagine him wanting to jump on his skateboard as soon as he is standing. I imagine him wanting to "get the ball rollin" concerning his and Kathleen's plans. I imagine his goofy sense of humor during his recovery and rehab and just know the doctors and nurses are going to love him and miss his presence on the day he gets to go home.
    TJ, you are an amazing friend. I get goosebumps thinking about you taking time to be with Cale and Kathleen during this time.
