Update - Rachel

Today is a great day!
Yesterday we found out Cale was having seizures and he seemed to be having them all day. Last night they doubled his Keppra dosage (anti-seizure med). TJ didn't notice any seizure activity all night, which is awesome! This morning, about an hour and a half before the Keppra was due, he started having some lite seizure activity. We'll continue to watch him carefully for any tremors.
The exciting thing!! He's been doing another new thing today. He's been moving his left arm up and across his body. It looks like he's exercising. Kathleen put her wrist up to him and let him smell her perfume and he reached his arm over toward her. :) She loved that of course!! She also took a video of him "exercising" that will be attached. God is so good. It's been fun seeing progress today!! Thanks for the continued prayer!

  2. THANK YOU for the video of Cale!
    It's very exciting him responding to your requests! : D
    Also exciting that he responds to Kathleens perfume!
    Good to know that they have determined he was having the seizures as now his doctors can get them under control for him, as I am positive they were an interruption to his ability to progress and respond.
    I will continue to pray for Cales progression for a full recovery!
    All my LOVE,

  6. Thanks for the vidio TJ. It really hit home and broke my heart. It will mend with cale's recovery. I know it will be a long road but I think cale will know some shortcuts. Thanks again Kathy's hubby Dennis.

We have been very uplifted by your faith and your attitude of thankfulness as the Lord walks you through this time in your lives.
