Update - Kathleen

Today is a very special day! It’s our anniversary! When Cale and I decided to get married 5 years ago, I remember specifically the night I prayed about it and how much peace God gave me. It was a big step, not only because marriage is big but I was only 18! I can now look at Cale and be reminded that God didn’t just give me peace that night for our marriage up until now, but he gave me peace for our whole marriage. He already knows when Cale is going to come out of the coma and he already knows the man he’s going to be. I’ve been telling myself all this for the last couple weeks, but it wasn’t until Rachel and I were talking one night and I was telling her about all my thoughts that it actually sunk in. So, thank you Rachel for letting me babble! :)

The last few days have been crazy! We found out yesterday that Cale is going to be getting transferred to WakeMed in Cary, NC. At first I was not very happy to have to move somewhere, but after talking with one of the ladies at Wake, I was so encouraged. I think it’s going to be such a good thing for Cale. The facility specializes in the stage of coma that Cale is in and will be able to prepare him for aggressive rehab. He needs to be free from any seizures for 72 hours straight before he can be transferred. Right now, it looks like Friday, may end up waiting until Monday.

Kathy leaves tomorrow morning and TJ leaves on Saturday. It’s going to be hard to say good bye to both of them. Thankfully Joe and Beth are going to be coming tomorrow night for a couple weeks so I won’t be alone yet :) It’s going to be harder to keep the blog updated but I will try me hardest!
Here’s an anniversary picture…

  1. Happy Anniversary!!! You two are such a special couple to us, and such a wonderful example of the Biblical kind of love that is intended for a husband and wife! Even us "old folks" can take a lesson or two from the kind of love and devotion that you have for one another :) Our family and our church are continuing to lift you up in prayer daily and continuing to trust in God's perfect timing and faithfulness! We love you both so much!!
    Love,
    The McLaughlins
    Rick, Marilyn, Lara, and Nik

  4. Happy Anniversay! You are so strong Kathleen. We all can learn so much through your faith. Thank you for updating. Since everyone's been leaving/getting ready to leave the updates were less...I was worried! Can you at least update us once a day? My fiance and I pray every night before bed that Cale be at peace and grow strong to beat this hurdle. We also pray for you to keep finding your inner strength! Thank you Kathleen, you are such a wonderful example of a devoted, loving wife! Cale is so lucky to have you watch over him :)
