Hit the Bullseye!

Today was the last family meeting! :( At one point, I had to decide not to look anyone in the eyes because I knew I wouldn't be able to hold back tears! I'm going to miss everyone here so much! As one of the staff was giving an update on how Cale is doing and what their discharge summary was going to be like, I scanned at the faces around the room with great respect for all of them. I realize that the nurses, therapists, doctors, and everyone else, are working and this is what they do for a living, but like I've said before, we have been so blessed with everyone along the way that has worked with Cale. At all three hospitals, we've had nothing short of the best!

This afternoon we shot some arrows again! Cale hit the bullseye! Last time he was all over the place with his shots, even with help, but this time we could tell his shots were even better and then of course, so were his hits! :)



(Cale's arrow is on top and mine is right under his!)

Here is Cale on the way to archery. He's being creative and blocking the sun! :)


I noticed last night and then again tonight, something really exciting! When the massage therapists are working with Cale, usually, he falls asleep. Sometimes it takes only minutes and his whole body relaxes and his breaths become so deep. Well, when this happens, Cale is now breathing through his nose! Such a miracle...I love it!

All of the animals/insects/human listed above, like to travel, be lazy, work, take on adventures, with a group of some kind. None of them do these things alone. I love that I have been so incredibly blessed with so many friends to travel this journey with! I am not a fan of doing things by myself at all! Thank you so much for being a part of this road we're on and for sticking through the tough days and the muck that sometimes needs to be walked through. You are so special to me!

If Cale and I were arrows, this would be us :)

  4. Kathleen, I love you. I know you have been a blessing to those who have served you. Remember when you were gone a few days, and coming back there was a note from the therapist(s) saying welcome back. They will miss you TOO!!!!! I trust your move will be smooth. Hugs, Marion
