Yesterday was a long day. Cale ended up having a hard day. He was not just a little agitated, he was very agitated. Right before transportation arrived to pick Adam up, the nurse was putting Cale to bed and he smacked her twice in the face, we also had to put restraints on him because he almost pulled out his peg tube…he’s a wild man. It’s a good thing to see him changing like this, it means healing is happening!
When they came to pick Adam up, Amy was able to ride in the ambulance, so I followed behind. He had a minor surgery last night, which is helping them to know what to do next. It sounds like he’s going to be going through two surgeries today.
A lot of not-so-happy emotions flooded me last night. When I went back with Amy to see Adam, it wasn’t the room, but the monitor screen, that reminded me about how many hours I spent starring at it. It’s weird being on this side of things, just waiting and sitting in the waiting room. For awhile last night, I was wondering what I was doing here. Sitting with me were ladies that know Amy. They know Adam and have been through the whole journey with them. I just met them! Lord, what am I doing here? All I know is that He said “go” and I will be obedient. I’m praying that I will be a blessing to Amy, and that God will give me the perfect words to encourage her heart.
I’m so very thankful to everyone that came to be with me while Cale was in ICU or through any part of this. You are very special people in my life, and there are no words to express how much it really means to me, and to Cale.
Amy and I left late last night and went to her house. We were up early, Amy headed right back to NCU to be with Adam and I went to the hospital with Cale for about an hour. He looked good, very sleepy. PT and OT came in while I was there, and he tried to sleep through it! When I walked in this morning I noticed how Cale has gained weight. He still isn’t back to what he was weighing before the accident, but because he’s lost so much muscle, he looks fuller. I’ve never seen him with a tummy! :)
Just so everyone isn't worried about me...I am taking care of myself. It is a large load to carry, being there for Amy and going through all this myself. God is giving me the grace, and He is enough to sustain me. Thank you for caring!
