An Angry Monkey?

I have been trying all day to think of a description of Cale. He's like a wild animal, I just can't think of which one fits best. He has been all over the place today. Several times, he has turned himself completely sideways in bed...

This picture doesn't even show him turned all the way! He's also grabbed, pulled, yanked on, pushed, and whatever else he could do to anything around him. When therapy tried to do stuff with him today, he just kind of ignored what they were asking and did his own thing. I've been wrestling with him all day, trying to keep him from pulling his feeding tube. At one point it was me and the nurse trying to get him situated and we were about to call for back up! :) The shirt he is wearing is from Mike Ehrsam and it says "Tough Cookie" well, it fits! I almost can compare it to being at the rodeo and watching the guys ride those bucking broncos.

I keep forgetting to ask for prayer with the infection Cale has. He first had the lung infection which is all better now, but then he came positive for a different infection that from the sounds of it, it's pretty expected when he's on so many antibiotics. The treatment was supposed to be for 10 days and then if the test came back negative they would take him off precautions. Well, the 10 days ended Tuesday but he's still having some of the side effects from the infection. Will you pray with me that it would just leave his poor body and he would be infection free? I would love to take him outside again!

I want to say again how thankful I am for everyone that is reading this blog and praying for Cale. It really means so much to me and encourages my heart everyday. I never thought the blog would be such a big thing or used so much. It's been a blessing! Every time I hear that someone is praying for Cale it's not just a small thing to me, it's huge! I am truly blessed and I feel like "thank you" is so small compared to what I feel. I know Cale would say the same.
