Thank You!!!

Thank you for ALL the prayers!!
 
Today has been so much better! Still rough BUT no explosions! The staff were in and out of the room and he was willing to do what was asked. He wasn't afraid to tell them he thought this place was dumb and he didn't want to be here...but that's pretty normal! ;o)
 
Cale has a new friend! One of the other patients has a service dog and she lets Cale hang out with him often! This brought smiles all through out the day! It also made me even more excited about us getting a service dog! There is such a difference...we've already talked about Basil with everyone though! Cale keeps talking about him and then we have to say we don't have him anymore. I always try to follow up with how we're getting another dog! And we both agree it'll be good!
 
 
I also found a running partner! I haven't been able to run since Sunday when I went with my brother and with the schedule here being so busy I didn't want to get out of the habit and not be able to! Lately I've needed to run. It's been my little time to get out frustration and clear my head. Well, about 5 minutes after meeting one of the other wives, I asked if she was a runner. It was maybe a random weird question to ask so quickly but I'm desperate! Haha! Turns out she is! She has run several marathons but hasn't trained in a few years. She's happy to get back to it and so am I!
 
So thankful for our extra blessings today!
 
Again, thank you for the prayers!
 
I asked Cale if he has anything to add, he says, "Eh."
 
:o)

  2. Oh, my sweet Friend, My heart is singing right now. I am so blessed at how well Cale is doing today. Isn't it a sign of healing, that he is able to say what he thinks. By the way, I was thinking about Cale saying he wants to go home, at least he isn't saying he wants to go to his moms. He knows where his home is. I enjoy these little "blurbs" as to how you are doing. I love you, Marion

    I'm so glad today has been a better day! We'll keep praying that each day produces additional blessings for you and Cale. Tell Cale that Luke and I played Garbage tonight and thought about him! We will be watching for updates and praying for you both as you adjust to the new program and new surroundings. Love, Kathy

  4. So happy that there were no explosions today. Praise God for answered prayer. Psalms 33: 20-22 "We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you."
    In Christ,
