Hello out there in blog land- I have missed hearing from all of you, but find it difficult to sit down at the computer as often as before with soooo much to do. Caleb is progressing - sometimes it feels like a snail pace, but he is going forward and I have to remember that it was the turtle not the hare that one that famous race. Leb is now ambulatory so we are finding it condusive to doing his therapy as an outpatient rather than an in home where we could not convince a speech therapist to travel this distance. Is Wellfleet in another country or something? He likes his work at RICH and does it willingly knowing that this is key. He is now making little jokes when they occur to him and we are delighted at this as this is a reminder of Caleb's former self - always so full of laughter and always with full intensions of making us crack up. We are quite simply blessed to have him home and blessed to be able to feast our eyes on him at all given hours of the day. Kai has been traveling home every weekend which is a strain for him, but he insists on it and Max has been my right hand man, always eager to help out with his big bro when possible. Max is generally in charge of the day's walk with Caleb and Spud and I feel this bonding is perfect for the three boys even tho Caleb was caught eating the dog's treat during the last trip and Spud was pissed. Caleb's appetite is enormous .
As for me- well I can only say that out of this tragedy - a tremendous treasure has been placed in front of us. We are stronger now than ever and we are each seeking out the gift that Caleb has brought to us. This has touched each of us personally and has shown us that a slightly lower form of us has transended into a slightly higher one-- we are becoming a better self.
As always- blessings to you, mumsie
