Recovery in full swing

Recovery in full swing

Friday, October 10, 2008

Great day yesterday!  We made it to Nashville after driving through the night & when we came to town we were able to go in and see Caleb at 1:00.  Levi flew in on Wed evening to spend fall break with his brother.  He was able to spend the morning with Caleb.  They went for a couple of rides in the wheel chair......and they were able to go outside.  

And then.......CALEB WALKED  almost to the nurses station!!!  He held the nurses hands for support. Levi was the witness........We spent a couple hours with Caleb & were able to go outside also.  We got a picture with Mom.  

They tried to hook up the internet in his room through his T.V.  There are a few snags that need to be worked out, but I hope that works well for him.  We were able to show him this website.  We didn't have time to really read much, but he was very interested in reading the blogs & comments.  So if there is anything you want to say to Caleb, he will be checking this site out in the next few days.  

He/we Thank you for the upcoming fund raiser at Applebee's.  He's very touched by all the generosity we have experienced!  We thank you from the bottom of our heart!
 
Today he will have more possible tissue removal.  I haven't heard about reconstruction today, although it's not out of the question.  He will be going in for surgery around 12:00.  I will post after the necessary phones when he is done.   

God is moving in incredible ways through this entire situation & we are all so Blessed to be included in the Blessing!!  
Love,
Tami (mom)

Caleb, it's been a long time since elementary school at PACS. I'm so glad you've been keeping the faith. There are a lot of people praying for you at PACS and CBC. You've been an encouragement to me to work hard to show the love of Christ to the unsaved people around me. Thanks!
In Christ, Heather

Caleb, it's great to hear you are doing better. I've been praying for you and will continue to. Keep it up, and don't get discouraged, I'm sure you still have a long road ahead of you.

Hi there- I don't know you or Caleb...but I am a former Lincoln, NE campus life leader and one of my former students is dating Caleb's best friend (Charlie I think?) and let me know about the situation. My husband is actually a resident at Vanderbilt and had the chance to meet Caleb recently. Since we live in the Nashville area I just wanted to let you guys know that if you know that if ANYONE needs a place to stay in Nashville while they come see Caleb- our house is definitely open. We live less than 15 minutes away from Vandy and have the space for visitors! Feel free to email me if we can open our home to anyone!! traci_davies@hotmail.com

In Him,
Traci Davies

Caleb and family....you don't probably don't remember me Caleb, I am Darcie's mom. You and her were in CCDC together and I met you once when I came to watch your skit. Darice thinks the world of you and your faithfulness to our Lord. I just want you to know that ever since she called and told us of your accident we have been praying constantly for you, your family and your heath team at the hospital. You have also been on our prayer chain at our church. It's so wonderful to hear such fantastic news. We pray God will continue his blessings of health upon you, take care...some day I want to meet you again back in Nebraska! To God be the Glory! Linda Blank
