Update - Kathy

The staff here have been really great with Cale and also very comforting for us. They are real good about taking preventative measures, answering any questions and concerns, and keeping us informed. They did the EEG today and was able to do the test while Cale was doing his tremors, so they did it for an extra 10 minutes. 30 minutes total. We were told that we will here about the results either tonight or tomorrow. They are checking for any seizure activity since the tremors have seemed to worsen. The new things Cale has done today is he now moves his arms from the shoulder area where before it would be from the elbow. Just a bit more movement and that is great. He also reached up a few times and felt his face, almost like he was wondering where that goatee came from. Being clean shaven in the Army and head shaved I feel when he does wake up and look in the mirror he may ask himself "who is this person with all this hair." Physical therapy was here this afternoon to do some more exercising and sit him up on the edge of the bed. Cale seemed to sleep through the whole process, so they will be trying to catch him in the morning and hopefully he will be more awake. Cale is really liking not having the t-tube on the end of his trach tube. With just the collar over it he seems so much more comfortable.

I am so grateful for everyone that is still showing there support. It does make things so much easier for us.
