Today has been another great day for Cale! Everyone here can really see a huge change from last week! He's been staying more aware for longer periods of time. This morning for PT and OT, he helped get himself dressed, put deoderant on, brush his teeth, and later he did some walking. He did all of it with help, but at least he's trying!
For speech, she gave him a cup with a straw, and today was the first time he's closed his lips around it. She also gave him some coins to see if he could put them in the correct labeled pile, but this time, he just studied each coin. It was good to see him actually looking at the coin and not just holding it in his fist.
Even with all of his care, he's helping the nurses and responding with head nods again. Everyone is so impressed with him...including his wife! I'm so proud of him!
I love him so much. I was laying in bed last night, thinking about love and how I can look at Cale, and feel overwhelmed with how much I love him and then, remind myself, yet again, that God loves him even more than I do. Everyday with him is amazing, even if it's not the way I thought our new life together was going to go, by his side, it's perfect. I am completely head over heels for this man!
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth— for your love is more delightful than wine. Song of Solomon 1:2
