The morning started off a bit on the feisty side, Cale didn't want to have anything to do with me or the nurse. After a couple hours he warmed up to the day and we had some fun taking pictures.
In therapy they tried getting him to play ball while sitting on the edge of the bed with out the rail. He caught the ball and didn't want to let it go. Even for a sweet picture...
He started to get mad that they were trying to take his ball so he showed them his fist!
Then because I was right next to him, he put my hand behind my back and held me hostage! Yes, I'm a smiling hostage! Haha!
Until he realized that I was his wife that he loves :)
A new thing today, Cale for the first time, has started closing his lips and swallowing! This is huge because so far, he keeps his mouth open all the time and it's hard to swallow with an open mouth...try it ;) So...once he gets down the swallowing when the ice or water is in his mouth, then we can try food! This is something that it looked like he wasn't going to be able to do. Praise God!
I also found out today that we are going to be in the area another 5 weeks. The Army is still deciding what they're going to do with him and when. It's in Cale's favor to stay here because he'll continue to get so much therapy.
This week has flown by! I can't believe tomorrow is already Friday. It's exciting to think about all that can happen in 5 weeks! NC, you're stuck with us for a little longer.
Here's a verse that Cale and I really like. It's helped in our marriage a few times... :)
Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Ephesians 4:2
