Update - Joy

Thank you all for your prayers, at this point that is the best thing that can be done. Cale is improving in micro-mini steps. Last night he took severals on his own and he moved his foot a little on his own. He is still in an induced coma, so he has not been awake. My son's mother-in-law has her church working on a fund-raiser to help pay for the hotel room we have, which will start to cost us on Monday. There is a veteran's group here called Home Away From Home and they paid for a hotel room for us for the first four days. Cale's mother Kathy arrived last night, his brother made it yesterday mornig and his best friend TJ has been here since Thurs. There are more friends arriving today, so Kathleen has support here at the hospital. She had to be hooked up to an IV yesterday to be re-hydrated, she was dehydrated because we wee not able to get her to drink or eat very much. She is now taking better care of herself. The doctors still have to do surgery to repair his broken femur but that will have to wait until later in the week. Everytime they have to do anything with Cale, even repositioning him means they have to wait awhile after to do anything else. The stimulation to his brain has to be minimal at this point. If there is anything that we need, we will post it on facebook and also contact the few people that I am in costant communication with. I would appreciate it if anyone wants to contact me or Kathleen that you call or text my phone 509-460-7619. Kathleen is still not in a good mental state to talk to anyone and we are reading text messages to her a little at a time. If we have any other news we will let everyone know as best we can. Again, thanks to everyone who has prayed and continues to pray, your prayers are making a difference.
