It's been 4 months since the accident. It's crazy to think that I'm still going through this, Cale is still going through this. I was so sure that by now we would be going through rehab and Cale and I would be laughing together again. It's not quite how I pictured today would be, but of course none of this is what I pictured! I was thinking on Monday about how this was a big week, 4 months is a long time, and I wondered how I was going to handle it. Was this going to be a hard day? Would it be full of tears? Would I be able to get out of bed? Well, to my surprise, I'm not only having a great day, but I'm so overwhelmed with thankfulness and blessings! I'm definitely not going to say it's been an easy journey so far (as you all have read!) but as I look back through it, God has completely been with me and gone before me through every step. He's given me strength when I felt so weak and small, He's given me peace from the very first night, He's provided family when mine is across the country, He's provided joy when I was feeling robbed of happiness with Cale. He is amazing, truly amazing!
The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11
Here is Cale 4 days after the accident
Here is Cale today Praise God!
My heart is so full of love and thankfulness for the Lord. I'm still sitting here amazed that so many are STILL praying for us.
I had my meeting with Beth today and as I was looking over the report with her, I was noticing so many encouraging things! Wording has changed, like, emerging response, increased tracking, increased use with both hands, increased awareness, with his sitting balance, it now says moderate assistance rather then max. How exciting!
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
Peace that He gives is definitely not anything the world can give!
