so i havent posted an update about caleb in a while, i linked to a video that has pictures and video of this whole journey (warning, at 4:24 you can hear my sister in law screaming for help, it's hard to watch), theres also a link here, Link , of a full written out update. He is doing WONDERFUL. He's surpassed all of our expectations!!! Just thought I'd drop y'all a little update :)

Thank you for the update on Caleb. I've greenlit it to appear on both TFD & the Main page so everyone can share his wonderful progress. :-)

Did shortie get a promotion or am I retarded?

Hmm...very strange. I just checked it and it's working fine for me. You might check the link in LeadFootSpiderMonkey's original post and see if the video works there.

No, I'm an admin. I've never been a mod.

BTW-you can check our profile and it will tell you whether one of us is an admin, a mod, or both (aka modmins).

And no, you're not retarded, just slightly confused. :-D

Good news is great news. Most news is bad news, so this is a nice change of pace. I remember this story from day one, and I'm glad things are looking on the bright side for Caleb.

Sorry, I don't have a clue. I've never used an iPad so I wouldn't even know where to begin troubleshooting.

However, the link I mentioned in my previous post does have the update for Caleb, if that's any help.
 
2012-07-05 02:33:29 AM  
The video works fine for me.

It does my heart a lot of good to see the little guy doing so well. Here's hoping that he only gets better. :)
 
2012-07-05 02:37:45 AM  
Oh yeah, I forgot about this. Good news.
Great work, doctors. Great work, Caleb's brain.
And most importantly of all, great work, Vegetales' Cucumber Dude.

Oh, and uhh... hmmm... must use tact, must use tact...

Is there a story somewhere based more on modern m.. wait... uhh... did...
Well, the science...

Does there exist a summary or diary using a more... err... factual... You're religious and that's great and all, but... uhh....
Did you thank the doc... do you think... you know, the... using the technology...

Yeah?
 
2012-07-05 02:54:37 AM  
Holy shiat, LFSM. That's not safe for work.

I'm going home now. If anyone wants me, I'll be hugging my kid.

If you haven't already check out the link in her original post. It has a lot of information about what happened to Caleb and all the progress he's made since he was so grievously injured.
 
2012-07-05 03:45:41 AM  
That's great. I'm so glad for the update.

Caleb, if somebody is kind enough to save these notes for you to read some day, I'm somebody who also should be dead and made it anyway largely through the hopes and efforts of other people. We've been given another chance, and it's a good one in a good world. Like me, you'll be fine. All my hopes, and I send you lots of hugs ;)

Very, very happy news! Thank you for the update.
 
2012-07-05 04:38:02 AM  
Awwww!!! What an ordeal for the little guy and all of you!!!! He is doing amazingly well, thank goodness. Miracles *do* happen. ***hugs to you guys***
 
2012-07-05 05:14:34 AM  
Larry the Cucumber and all the other Veggies do magical things through the heart. Now, I will have to sing the Cheeseburger song.

You go Caleb!
 
2012-07-05 05:22:58 AM  
Can't see it. Due to the music used in the video youtube blocks it for users in Germany because the content mafia demands so.

That sucks.

For those who can't watch the video, LeadFootSpiderMonkey provided a link in her original post that goes to a written update, plus links about how Caleb was severely injured and progress reports from that time up through now.

Glad to hear the kid is doing better but like God-is-a-Taco mentioned, too much god is good!oh we're blessed B.S.

Well I prayed for the machines. So ... you know, that's why they worked.

So was it determined if that rock was just one that came down, or was it someone that had tossed it down?

Caleb's father is a minister. Get over it.

If believing in God helps them get through this, let them believe without bashing it.

Something like this has to be incredibly hard on a family. I cannot imagine having to go through it myself. I've had some serious family medical issues to deal with, but nothing this horrible. I lost my faith a long time ago, but that doesn't mean everyone has.

It's easy to be on the outside and talk about how the Doctors and staff are doing everything that's helping their son recover, but they're also being told by those same people a lot of worst-case-scenarios. Medical staff just can't get your hopes up like that. Even their high estimates are still damned low, because they'd rather err on the side of caution.

When you're being told all these horrible possibilities all the time, you need hope. It's essential to going on day-to-day, which is essential for the healing of their son. For this family, that hope manifests itself as a belief in God.

Let them have their hope their own way.

There are plenty of threads for Farkers to debate the merit of Faith and healing, and God's role in tragedy. Let's not make it this one.

LeadFootSpiderMonkey, I wish you and your entire family the best. It sounds like you're doing a fantastic job helping your son. It takes a strong family to deal with an ordeal so well.
 
2012-07-05 08:44:56 AM  
I'm very happy to see that Caleb is doing so much better.

LeadFootSpiderMonkey: I'm sorry you've been through such a difficult time. You and Caleb will be in my thoughts.

This was the first I'd heard of it, so it was terrible news and then great news all in a couple of minutes. Now if you'll all excuse me, I need to hug my boys and then find a nice isolated place where I can lose it in peace.
 
2012-07-05 09:12:32 AM  
I was not around here when the incident occurred, but after watching your 15 min video, I can fully understand what had happened, and I am very happy for you that your little boy is doing so much better now! As a father myself I can not imagine what you must have gone through (and still go through) with this, and I fully believe that God is watching over all of us, and allowed this to happen for a reason, one that we may never know, but it is wonderful to see the amount of prayer and support that total strangers can pour out in a situation like this!

"Grandmom, why are you crying?" asked the three-year-old sitting in my lap.

"Cause I'm happy, Pumpkin."

Thanks for the update. Every now and then, Caleb pops into my thoughts. It's one of the few things that actually gets me to pray anymore...
Continued success for you all!

Came in to say something snarky. Stepped back out for a sec because it got really dusty in my house watching the video. What a trooper.

So happy for you guys :)

Between the dust from this drought and the onions being cut in my kitchen...dayum...

Glad to see he's getting stronger day by day.

My Victoria turns two in a week. I couldn't imagine something like this happening to her. It makes me really happy Caleb is progressing well. Here's hoping it continues! Atta boy!
 
2012-07-05 10:33:24 AM  
This is really great. I am so happy for you.

You only get one life. Be good. Do good.
 
2012-07-05 11:14:52 AM  
I got it to work. It's dusty in here. I have a two year old and I can't imagine.....

Wonderful news! Sweet kiddo!
