Two exciting things happened yesterday! Last night we were having a really good time and I didn’t want to spend it all on the computer.
First, Cale put his watch on!! He has been trying this for so long and has never been able to do it, but he finally was able yesterday! It was backwards, but at least it was on!
Second, a couple weeks ago we walked to McDonalds in PT from our house. This was a long walk for him and by the time we made it, he was putting a ton of weight on his cane and then the rest on me. I wasn’t sure how we were going to get him home! He ended up making it, but he was SO tired! Last night for PT we walked from our house all the way to Dairy Queen!!!! If you know how far it is from our house to Dairy Queen, please comment in agreement!! This was crazy-CRAZY!!!! Praise God! I would say he was more tired when we had walked to Mickey D’s then he was to walk even farther to Dairy Queen. His legs are getting stronger!!! His endurance is building!!! Wooooohooo!!! So cool!
Such excitingness (my word) going on around here!
On another note…
It has been rough. Really rough. Right after OT today, Cale went straight to our bedroom to lie down and I spent a short time crying and getting everything out and then hopped on the elliptical for a really long time. It felt good and was just what I needed! By the end my legs were noodles.
Cale’s days are getting more frustrating by the hour. This of course makes things really hard…for both of us. I’m soaking up and basking in the moments when Cale is in a good mood. It doesn’t come often lately, which breaks my heart all over the place. I try to remind myself that it’s all good. More awareness=more frustration.
I hate that things are so hard for him. I hate that he’s so miserable. I hate that he is so confused. I hate that he hardly enjoys anything. I hate that I can’t do anything to make it better. I hate that he has to walk this journey out. I hate that his brain was severely injured. I hate that there’s nothing to make it easier. I hate that…
Oh yes. My list could go on and on, but rather than keep going about it and bore you to death, I would just ask for prayer.
I seem to do that a lot.
I’m so thankful I can know that when I’m having a really tough
I’m so thankful for you joining our journey!
I love him on the easy days & the hard days!
