Last night while I was with Nikki and the boys, I was telling Nikki a story about one of Cale's shirts and all of a sudden I realized, I have no idea what shirt he was wearing the day of the accident! I knew he was wearing his new hoodie that he had just bought, but what shirt underneath? Tears came to my eyes and I felt so desperate to know, I had to find out. I even called my brother to make him check in the bag that I asked him not to throw out, Cale's clothes, cut, and bloody, but I had to know. The shirt wasn't even in there. It must have been forgotten at the hospital. It was so unexpected and I felt silly that it bothered me that way. It was so unsettling not to know. Poor Nikki had to deal with my sudden emotions!
Cale had a good day. He sat in his chair for 3 hours today. I think that's the longest he's been able to tolerate it. This evening he turned himself on his side, tucked his arm under his head, curled up, and fell asleep. This is the first time I've seen him really try to get comfortable and sleep like he used to. Something small but so encouraging to me. He also wouldn't let go of my hand. I liked that :)
This is going to be a busy week and for the next few weeks, I'm going to be having to make some decisions that are going to be kind of hard. Please pray for wisdom. I'm seeking so much what the Lord will have me do, but I have to be willing to have open ears to hear, and right now I'm not sure I want to hear too much.
...and just to clarify :) when I said the other night that I went "for drinks" with a friend, I had a latte, dark chocolate and hazelnut in fact, and she had a smoothie. :)
