Oh my gosh. I never expected to check back and hear of improvement. This is wonderful news, though I know still precarious. I submitted Cal's and his family's story in church last Sunday to be read aloud as a sorrow, and asked that the congregation hold Cal and his family in their hearts and prayers. If ever I wanted to believe in the power of prayer, it is now.

Our family too was at Pointe Santo and witnessed this tragic event. We are elated to read that little Cal has shown some signs of improvement. I would like Cal's mom and family to know that there are many "Pointe Santo" families keeping them in their prayers. Thank you for the updates.
God Bless little Cal.

Hi Alice - to preserve some privacy for the family, I won't say where they live other than it's on the East side of the river.
Cal was removed from the ventilator yesterday and has been breathing on his own. He is responding with movement and is able to see. For Cal, life is minute by minute and you can imagine how his Mommy feels. She is doing the best she can. Cal is a little fighter and she isn't giving up on him!
I completely understand about the privacy conerns. I was there when it happened and was one of the people holding the Mom's hand. It is such good news to hear that he is breathing on his own and showing signs of inprovemant. I pray for him every day.
