Everyone that knows Cale, already knows how much enjoyment he gets when he makes a new record or high score...well he did it again today! He walked SO far! It was really exciting and when he started to get tired, we told him he was almost done, and he pushed himself harder. After the walk PT said he moved his right leg by himself about 50% of the time. This is another huge step! During the second session, they rolled him a soccer ball, he kicked it every time, and used both feet! Every little thing that his right side is doing shows that his brain is continuing to heal everyday. Thank you Lord!
Throughout the day Cale counted with the therapist. I feel like every time he does it, I get so excited, like I'm going to pop out of my skin, but from them I got a "that's great" and then they continued on with whatever they were working on. I know it's not that they aren't excited, it's just now seeing what else he can do with this skill. I had some coins in my wallet today that I was hoping I could get him to count and work on some numbers but why would he give up money? Once it's in his hands, it's his! :)
The report today looked good, not anything new. I kept thinking all day about how much of a blessing it is that he's still in this unit, still getting all of this therapy...he's counting! Wow!
Adam is still in ICU and it looks like two more surgery's still. Please continue to pray for him and Amy.
