God has answered one of my prayers!!

First off... KALEB IS COMING HOME!!!!! We are so excited! We have been told that he will probably come home sometime next week. So me and my best friend have been CLEANING CLEANING CLEANING my apartment. I don't want any germs to be anywhere in my house and considering that it has barely been lived in in the last 2 months, it needed cleaning. We also had to make room for medical equipment that is coming home with him. I am so excited to have him coming home. The next great thing is that they are taking him off Phenobarbital. YAY! I am glad that I mentioned something and kind of put my foot down on that one. The Neuorologist agreed with us and said that it def. prohibits brain activity drastically which means that it basically shuts it down so much that the brain can not even do its healing. So this is also GRAET NEWS.

I hope that everyone had a great 4th! Remember to thank those who have given you your freedom and most importantly thank God for this great nation.

I am praying that everything stays on track for Kaleb going home. I am SOO EXCITED! I know it is going to be completely different than before, but I think being home will help his recovery. Home is the place he LOVES most. Thank you God for answering our prayers. Thank you to all of you who have prayed for this day. There are still mountains he will have to climb. He will still be in and out of Doctors Offices and the hospital, but this is still a HUGE step forward.

This one is from today as well.


The countdown has begun.

Kaleb is still doing Very Well.

He is so much more awake since they hae started wheening him off of the phenobarb. He moves much more and makes more noises. He still doesn't blink though... It is so weird. They are shooting for Thursday to have him completely off of the Phernobarb. After that he will have to stay 3 whole days to ensure that he doesn't have a seizure. If all goes well, Kaleb will be coming home by next Monday! I am excited, scared, happy and nervous all at once. I think it will REALLY hit me hard when he gets home that he is changed. I mean the last time he was home he was sitting in his Walker and smileling up at me in the kitchen. I miss his smile so much. I thing that being home will help him so much though becuase that is where he was the happiest. He LOVED to be home. I just miss him so much. We have tons of pictures up of him and I look at them and think "God please just give one more day with him the way he was before." I took those days for granted before. But I know in due time that he WILL be back to normal... It may take a couple years, but I am ready for it. I am going to do EVERYTHING I can to rehabilitate him back. He is my full time job now and I will be the HARDEST worker!

God will bring us through this... Look how far he has brought us already! I will ask and ask and ask for Kaleb's miracle until he gets it. I will pray with out ceasing. I know it will happen. It will happen in God's time and we just have to be patient.

I am sorry if I haven't excepted your friend request. Unfortunately the only way that I can keep people from writing inappropriate and HURTFUL comments on my page is to stop accepting friend requests. We have ebough hurt in our lives already and negative comments just hurt us more. I know it is just a handful of people and I appologize if you have been waiting. Please understand where I am coming from.

Like I said the countdown has begun and I am planning on blogging everyday until he gets home (as long as all goes well). Please remember to Pray for him because he still has a long and bumpy road to travel. Also, Please pray for everyone involved in this.
