After staying home for most of the week, and the fact that Caleb has done so well with the medication, we decided to let him play in the baseball game tonight. He did so good for missing 2 games and a practice. After the game, while they were in the huddle, Coach Tony told the team if he was giving out game balls, Caleb would have gotten it. He had two amazing hits (off machine) and made two stops at second base and threw the runner out at first both times. If those plays didn't happen, we wouldn't have won the game. :) That was a proud mama moment. My heart swelled with the fact that not only did he play great, but that the coaches noticed it and praised him during the game and after. After a rough few days, I know it did him good to hear how proud they were of him and that despite any discomfort he played great. The last inning they had Caleb at catcher and even though it isn't Caleb's favorite position, he did exactly what he was supposed to do. Later the coach said he didn't even think about Caleb's trouble when he put him back there, but he sure hoped it help "work things out". :)
