This morning Caleb was suppose to go to St Elizabeth for an appointment with a surgeon to look at his left leg. We got there and there was miscommunication & there was no appointment. So we came back to Madonna where Caleb gets to go into the cafeteria & pick out his own meal. THAT was cool! He ate really well. Suzi (my sister) & her kids came to visit. Caleb had OT & PT. He has that for 2 hours in the morning & 2 hours in the afternoon. He is getting around so well. He has a wheelchair that he propels everywhere. He has a pair of gloves that help him grip the wheels.
He should get his left leg looked at by a Dr on Tuesday, and then hopefully we'll get an idea when they think they will be doing his skin graft. Today we talked to the social worker & we are looking at Caleb being here at Madonna for appr. 6 weeks. Then out patient. We are looking at him going to Immanuel Hospital in Omaha for out patient rehab & staying with Aunt Kristen & Uncle Jim.
It has been so good for him to be here. They are really getting him going on rehab!! They take very good care of his burns & are pushing him to do a little more each day. We are thankful that Caleb is doing so well.
Please keep praying for the rehab on his left arm/hand. We've had some positive input on what they think, but it is still has a ways to go. They are really concentrating in therapy on waking up those nerves.
Thank you so much for all of your prayers & support!! Love, Tami
