Hurry Up Cale!

Oh goodness! I've been a little busy bee this last week! It's funny how not too long ago all I was doing was sitting in the ICU room all day everyday and life seemed so slow, but at the same time a blur. Now, I feel like I'm running nonstop and it's all still a blur :)

I didn't have internet access last night to give an update, so I'll try to do my best to cover everything from yesterday...

First, Basil is cone free! This means, the constant sound of him scratching plastic all night is gone! Yahoo for more sleep! Also, a couple soldiers from Ft. Drum came to visit. One of them was deployed with Cale all last year. It was fun to hear deployment stories and giggle at how adorable my husband is. :) He's such a funny guy! It really encouraged me to see the guys root for Cale. For awhile now, I've been hearing Cale groan and do certain movements, but I think to a point it kind of becomes normal? Well, these two soldiers who haven't seen him since before the accident, were so excited about all of it. SGT Elosh kept telling Cale about everyone who has been asking about him and how they all know he's such a fighter. I'm hoping Cale could hear and understand so he could be so encouraged too!

I was reading an old message from Hannah the other day and I realized that for a while now, I haven't been reading scripture to Cale. I do every now and then when I read something that really encourages me, but I was reading it to him everyday. So, yesterday I took the time and read to him! Part of it was in the beginning of Luke when Elizabeth becomes pregnant in her old age. I told Cale he better get going and be healed so I'm not old when I become pregnant! ;)

I didn't get to see him for very long today. He was resting pretty good while I was there. I'm not complaining I'm just sharing a fact...I HATE those yucky yellow gowns!!

"I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."

  1. Kathleen,
    You spoke at my church today and I wanted to thank you for sharing your faith with us. I know that God has a perfect plan for Caleb and for you. I don't know the details but do know that it is based on Jesus. That is the only plan there is. God loves you very much and will never turn his back on those he loves. I came by to meet you after the service and I want you to know I am praying for Cale and am also praying for you.

  2. Kathleen, I was one of many at Salem Baptist in Apex who heard your testimony today. I want to encourage you that your work is the work of the Holy Spirit in you. You will never know how many lives you are both touching, but God has not finished yet. Keep fighting the fight of faith, the assurance of things hoped for but not seen, because there is POWER in your faith. When medical wisdom fails, God's power is evident because His power is perfected in weakness. I will be praying for your family, for your faith, for Cale's recovery. As the mother of four sons, I will pray for your parents and extended family as well. May God lift you moment by moment, and remind you of His continual presence and love. I am completely convinced that Cale knows you are there, and will respond over time to His presence in you. I have seen miracles of healing, of understanding when there seemed to be no response. God bless you. Basil is lovely!
