#1 Husband!

Yikes! Another busy day! I'm making progress (maybe!) though. The report didn't really have anything new. I will say, it is so exciting to see the changes on paper! I get to see them happen everyday but for some reason seeing it in black ink makes it feel official. I think because it means I'm not the only one seeing it! As far as how much longer before we move...unknown. I'm still not worried about it because Cale really is getting awesome care here.

Today they gave him a new wheelchair to try out. It's a regular one that can be controlled by the wheels. The therapists just wanted to see what Cale would do in it for this first time. I was impressed! He reached down and used his left hand to turn the wheel. We'll have to work on getting the right hand to work too! Another step!

So...a moment to brag ;) Even though Cale is coming out of a coma, he still spoils me! The speech therapist gives him a small massage thing that he likes to turn on and off. It was really funny the first time she gave it to him, he only would hold it with two fingers! Shortly before I left tonight, I had my head on his chest and he was holding the massage thing. I asked him to put it on my back and he did! He even moved it around for awhile! Not only did it feel nice getting a massage, I was cuddling with Cale at the same time :) How wonderful it is to be loved by him! Heehee!

The last few days while I've been hunting for a new home, I have been battling for control. I'm having to constantly remind myself (and be reminded by others!) that God is in control and I just need to trust Him! It's so much easier that way!

I've always loved this verse!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6

  1. I just continue to be amazed at Cales progress....and your strength and it just confirms that God has HUGE plans in store for both of you...You are a strong women of God Kathleen and you should be proud not only of Cale but for yourself as well!!! When he comes to 100% he is going to be so dang proud to call you his wife and for sticking by him through this time of challenge!!!

  2. Kathleen,
    Sunday afternoon I was napping and had a dream. As you know, I read the blog daily before bed and say a prayer for Cale.

    In this dream, Cale was walking and talking. Still with some difficulty due to the injury but he was walking unassisted. I thought I would share this with you as Cale seems to be progressing.

    I will continue to pray daily. Gid Bless,
    Alyssa
