On the fourth of July, 2007 Caleb Potter was involved in a skateboarding accident.
He suffered serious injuries and continues to need all of our positive thoughts and prayers.
This blog is to serve as a space for updates on Caleb's journey of recovery.

There is not a night that... I sleep through...... without crying.....
There is not a night that .....I lie awake ....without hope!


Julie said...

Hope, we all have hope.

Thank you for popping on here Sharyn, it eases my mind to know you are still fighting the fight.
I pray you still have a strong support system surrounding you.

I too still check your site once a week hoping to hear how you are doing.. Greg (McGrath) my son, was on the Cape for a few days in late July visiting friends and catching up - he may have seen you and said Hi..
He has had numerous head injuries over his life, two really severe and I am so grateful he is still Greg. Wishing you strength and support from all around you...
You are an inspiration ....

Evelyn said...

I, too, still check in occasionally to see how you and Caleb are doing.

We are here to just listen and to let you just be.

The warm thoughts and prayers of many of us are still with you in the dark deepness of the night.

That candle light that is hope still burns brightly in our hearts.

I, too check in on you here, but also know that you are ever in my heart and my thoughts; I am standing beside you, still.

Be well Sharyn, one foot in front of the other.
As always, with hope and love,

Sharyn - Don't feel like blogging - that's fine. But when you write, it is as always provocative and thoughtful.
Saw Caleb at Cumby and he was acting his normal self. R

This is the first time that i am writing to you having read your posts off and on from almost day one. I'm sorry that it has taken me so long.
I have an ABI (aquired brain injury) that comes and goes and i have found great support from a site called Daily Strength - look under TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). Amongst the contributors, thre are a number of Mohers taking care of their sons as you are and this wonderful community of people offer suggestions, stories of recovery, and companionship to each other.
Also, I don't know if you would like this, but i live part of the time in Wellfleet and would be happy to meet you and Caleb some time. You will not be depressed by meeting me, you will think i am prefectly normal (hurray!) But i thought i may be able to help you and/or Caleb in some way.

Lastly, have you ever looked into a website called Lumosity?

Forgive me if these web sites are old news to you.

At least, now you know there is another person out there amongst so many others who read and care about you and Caleb and hopefully this knowledge will take away a little piece of your pain and add to your big bag of hope.

Merry Christmas to you at the Potter/Lindsay household. May the Hope come shining through.

Julie said...

Wonderful article on you in Cape Cod Life or Voice Sharyn!
I miss you on the blog, but understand that you are pretty talked out.


Roberta said...

hey Sharon - Went to the St Patrick's Day Dance at Pres Hall and got to dance with Caleb twice.

He was quite good and he was rockin' and rollin' with a crowd of eager partners. Great to see.

Your navy/white wool hat you would wear everytime you went snowboarding....I can still see it when I close my eyes. I knew everything was OK when you were around. I think of you often and carry your spirit with me where ever I go.

Hi Sharyn. Just checking in from afar. Thinking of you and wishing you all well...give Caleb a big hug and a kiss for me. Woo Woo!! :) I talked to some kids in town the other day...they were skateboarding around these hills here...not a helmet in sight. I told them all about Yellowbeard The Pirate. One of them went home and told his mom the story...she bought them all helmets.
