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.

Moving upwards and beyond

I have been vacant from this blog for quite some time now- but believe me I have been busy and occupied. If any of you are still checking in, I am here to update, and with some very good news. Tomorrow Caleb and another brain injured young man will be moving into The Potters Room, a residential home for brain injured here in our very own Wellfleet. I am so thrilled! When I reread my last post and realized I was not good company for anyone, I pushed myself out of depression by spearheading this project...something I knew I was destined for. Caleb is a bit reticent, but as always his positive attitude and his fortitude shine through...and he is excited to be moving forward. We will be looking for one other young man..and then the house is complete for now! I have missed all of you who stood by us, and hope that somewhere on your radar we still exist. Blessings to all of you- and I will keep you posted. Love, Sharyn and Caleb

Sharyn, what awesome news! But I suppose we shouldn't be surprised - your strength and fortitude have been truly amazing. I'm happy for Caleb and, as always, completely impressed by your ability not only to survive, but to build something positive from the ashes of despair. Hats off to you!
Best always, Jerry

My wife and I spent some time in P-Town this summer and you and Caleb were in our thoughts and prayers.Good luck in the future to both of you.
