Caleb Brown Moves To Scottish Rite Rehab Facility

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Caleb Brown, the two-year-old Nashville boy who was struck in the head by a large rock at Fall Creek Falls State Park, has been moved to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite.

His father, Tim Brown, said on the family Facebook page, "Ok, we are finally getting settled here at Scottish Rite. This place is AMAZING! The doctors, staff, PT's and OT's are awesome. They looked Caleb over earlier and will be looking him over more tomorrow, but at first glance, they said that they think Caleb will do great with his rehab! He laughed a lot more tonight as ...we were playing with him. More purposeful movements too!"

Caleb had been at T.C. Thompson Children's Hospital since the Oct. 18 incident.

He has still not spoken, but family members say he has made significant progress in a number of areas since he was airlifted by LifeForce.

Mr. Brown wrote prior to leaving Chattanooga, "We close a major chapter in our lives tonight, and begin a whole new chapter tomorrow as we get ready to go to Atlanta, for possibly the next 2 months. We are so thankful for everyone at T.C. Thompson and Ronald McDonald House. What a wonderful and inspiring group of people! They did a fantastic job in ...getting our son through the most critical times. God bless every one of them."

The family released video showing Caleb smiling and responding to his grandfather playing with him. You can see the video on their facebook page.

Exempt Volunteer Fire Departments From Procurement Policies - And Response (2)

The Hamilton County Commission just grouped a bunch of departments together in an attempt to reign in the CVB. I haven't spoken to any commissioners, but I truly believe it was unknowingly. By mandating that all non profits that receive 25 percent of their revenue follow county procurement policies, they might as well have padlocked all local volunteer fire departments. We expect ...
