I can't write anything else about the day before I get this out...WE'RE LEAVING NEXT WEEK! Ahh! California here we come! When I was laying in bed this afternoon, I had my phone on silent, and ended up missing a call. 10 minutes later, I saw that I had a voicemail...it was the nurse case manager from Ft. Bragg, calling to let me know that things have happened a little faster then we all thought! As of right now the plan is to leave Wednesday, possibly Friday. I'll no for sure on Monday. Eeeek! It's exciting because this program he's getting into is AMAZING, but I'm going to miss the staff here at Wake, and everyone that I've met here in NC so much! It's also going to be sad to leave my brother, and Cale's brother! I think it's funny that I feel surprised that everything has worked out like it has. Is God not the one in control? Hasn't he promised me that He would provide for us and lead the way? Aren't I supposed to trust Him? All I can do is continue to sit at His feet and be in Awe of who He is. He's the King!
Cale makes progress everyday! As I'm typing this, Cale is currently hiding under his sheet. I was trying to cuddle with him and he pushed me away. After several attempts, I asked if he was mad at me. He nodded "yes"...hmm. I told him I wasn't sure what I did, but I'm very sorry. "Will you forgive me?" I asked. His reply was 3 taps and then he crossed his arms and turned away from me! His whole body! How can I not laugh at that? He has gone from not moving at all, to turning his body all by himself! I finally told him I would just sit at the end of his bed, and he pushed me to move down. Here I sit, while he's under the sheet. He wouldn't even give me enough sheet to cover my toes! ;)
Yay for a praise! Adam and Amy are back! Adam is doing sooooooo good! He opens his eyes and looks around. He's tracking Amy already! So great!
I know that since the accident, I haven't been great about calling people. I'm not always good about returning voice mails, and I don't always manage to answer text messages. I don't always get around to answering facebook messages or comments, and a lot of times, if I do reply, it sometimes takes me a while or it's very short. I know sometimes I've made plans and had to cancel. I'm saying this all to say, I'm sorry if it's been you that hasn't heard back from me or you that I've had to cancel on. Also, thank you so much for understanding and for showing me grace. I feel so incredibly blessed to have so many, beyond amazing, people in my life. Thank you.
In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. Psalm 33:21
Here's some pictures from the last time we were in California together! :)
