Update - Kathy

Yesterday Cale had a very active day. He was moving around all day with just mini naps here and there. He is back to moving his right arm quite a bit. I am pretty sure that he is "feeling" things now. When the nurse put an eye drop in he reached up and rubbed his eye. He kept reaching up to his head and rubbing as if he was wondering where all that hair came from. He also scratched his nose and his beard. His tremors were very light and short lived. This is really good. The doctors are still working on the dosage and right medicines to completely stop this. When his speech therapist came in yesterday she stated that Cale is definitely more conscious. While she was here he reached out for her arm and rubbed it a bit. When she was standing down by his legs beside me on his right side, he flung his left leg up and over and put his foot on her shoulder. This was pretty funny to us. We are seeing more and more of Cale's quirky ways as he heals and becomes more aware of things.

He is now resting as Kathleen and I quietly sit by his bedside. So far his nap has lasted 20 minutes, which is quite a bit longer than any naps he took yesterday. TJ said he did not rest much through the night either. Since it is Cale and Kathleen's 5th wedding anniversary today, we are hoping for a glorious day filled with wonderful surprises. God Bless all of you that are still praying for us.
