Despite today being another hard, emotional, roller coaster of a day, it was really great. I spent the morning being tossed between feeling so much encouragement and discouragement all at the same time, it's pretty interesting the thoughts that come during a time like that. At some points I'm not sure which one I'm feeling. Rachel reminded me today that it's okay that I'm having all these thoughts and feelings because God can handle it. How great that He can! Good news is that even though there is discouragement, I feel way more encouraged then not!
They had to do a few tests along with another chest x-ray to see if there was anything happening with Cale that shouldn't be going on. His temperature was a little high today and his white blood cells were up. So far they've gotten the results for everything except the blood test and so far he's doing fine.
The final test for the infection we've been waiting on came back today...it was negative! Woohoo! That's so nice because now Cale can go outside. Today was really rainy and cold so by the time they said he was clear to leave the room we had to just walk around the hospital, which was still way better then staying in his little room. When the lady came to tell me his room was finished being cleaned and we could go back in if we wanted, I decided to walk just a little longer. As we walked pass the windows in the hall, I saw sun! It didn't feel cold at all outside so we went! Cale's first time getting fresh air and feeling the warmth of the sun on his face. It was such a great moment! Doesn't he look handsome! Hehe! :)
Also, today PT and OT wanted to take some more steps today. He was having lots of trouble with his right leg. When they first started he would move his left leg, pause, and then move his left leg again. It was like it didn't register that his right leg didn't move. As they walked him today, they moved his right leg, but he did the left on his own. He was having trouble standing straight, but that will come :) Here he is...sorry it's sideways...
Today is 10 weeks since the accident. I was watching some of the older videos, it's amazing how far Cale has come. Really. We were so excited when he first started to lift his hand and then his arm, and now he's walking to his bed! Everyday, we are another step farther in recovery. I'm so proud of him.
Tomorrow is the day I'm asking everyone to spend the day fasting and praying with me! Thank you so much for coming along side me and encouraging me so much.
