Monday is report day. I meet with the case manager and go over the report and ask any questions I have. I went into this meeting a little nervous because I had questions, lots of questions, and I wasn't sure what the answers were going to be. I also felt like my boxing gloves were on and I was ready to fight. I'm not sure completely why I was so worked up, but I knew I wanted to make a point. Point being-I'm not giving up. I have been feeling like all these plans about the future were coming too fast and it really felt like it was giving up on Cale. There's a lot on my plate, a lot of things I have to get figured out and a nonstop whirlwind in my head. Today, my very sweet case manager helped me figure a few things out and helped calm my thoughts. After some great time with the Lord today and the meeting I feel so much better about decisions I'll be having to make. I'm so very thankful that even with ups and downs with emotions, the peace and joy the Lord gives does not waiver, it doesn't just leave me when things get hard. Anyways, enough babbling...great news! On the report it says...vision in left eye appears good. Ahh! I've been praying for that even though there was optical damage and even though everyone was saying there would most likely be no vision with that eye, I knew God could change that, and He did! I realize that they won't really know, until Cale wakes up more, but it says it on the report! That's HUGE!
The report also says that there is increased vocalizations noted, and emerging response to stimulation noted (eye blink, grimace)!! Oh what a good day! I've also been watching for any little thing that would show that he's starting to become more aware, yesterday he adjusted himself in bed and rolled to his side to get comfortable. It was the first time I've seen that and today he did it several times. Also, he played with my hand today and it seemed different then before. He actually was straightening his fingers to hold my hand. Since Saturday he's been moving his tongue across the back of his teeth! My heart is beating so fast and I haven't stop to take a breath! Haha! It's been a good day :)
His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor His delight in the legs of a man, the Lord delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love. Psalm 147:10-11
