So...the sleep over lasted until 12:30am. It was exciting to stay while Cale fell asleep and then myself...except that I kept waking up wondering if I felt sweat or pee. Now, it wouldn't be a new thing for me if it was pee, but my mind was stuck on making sure he made it through the night. I had worked out a plan with nursing so my alarm was going to go off at 1am to let me know it was time to help Cale to the bathroom. I started to feel Cale move and quickly out of my mouth came "Boy, lets go to the bathroom!" I think he thought I was crazy-but that's not new either ;) After getting him back in bed, I leaned over and gave him a sweet kiss and said "Can I go to bed?" because he is the best husband ever he said, "yeah it's okay".
Here we are, all ready for bed! :)
Cale did amazing in therapy! I was so impressed with how hard he was working. In OT they worked on some more writing. Usually Cale will do a few words and then he's done and wants to move on to something else. It gets so hard for him because his left and right hand still battle each other. I was a little late getting into OT and when I walked in, there was a stack of papers that Cale had already worked on and was still writing! He did it for 50 minutes! I'm so proud of him! When he was all done, we looked back through each of the papers to look at what he had done. Cale said "I suck." What?! I was sitting there completely amazed by what he had just done! He started pointing at all the ones he messed up on and said "Ewe!" Oh goodness! I pumped him with some encouragement!
Look at all he did!
He also worked crazy hard in PT! Pat first tried to get him to walk with out anything, but Cale was having so much trouble because he was so scared. Pat gave him his hand and Cale's confidence shot way up! Pat was making sure that he wasn't giving Cale support, rather just something to hold. Here's a video for you to see how great he's walking!!:)
I had another meeting today. Plans have changed again (and of course will probably change again), but we were at least able to come up with an idea that I feel so great about. All of it is still up in the air, at least until after Monday when I visit the other facility. It really helps that there's such a great team of people here working with Cale! We're blessed!

Tonight was Bingo! Together we had 8 bingo's and Cale won a hat! He picked it out and had the biggest smile on his face! He put it on right away and wanted to show everyone. It was so great!
