Thank you so much to everyone for your outpouring of love, prayer & support. We are so overwhelmed. Fortunately, Caleb doesn't understand what's going on at this point. We pray for God's strength, peace & wisdom in all we do. We know He is in control & this will be for His glory. The reports we received so far are not encouraging, but we will not give up. We choose to believe the report of the Lord, which says that Caleb is healed and whole.

Well, it's 4:23am & Caleb is WIDE awake! He's more alert than yesterday & is going for a ride around the unit in a wagon as I type. His right side is showing improvement, which means the steroids they're giving him are helping reduce any swelling present. MRI in a few hours & we'll begin to have a better idea of what we're dealing with here. Thanks to all for your continued prayers.

6:30am & Caleb's starting to get more & more upset because he can't have anything to eat or drink. He's not had any solid food since breakfast Sunday morning. He can't have liquids until after the MRI & no solid food until we get the okay from the speech therapist. Please pray the speech therapist comes early and gives the okay for solids.

8am - Neurosurgeons came back in. Head of neurology confirmed that tumor is inside the brain stem & inoperable. Projects that treatment from oncology will be radiation & chemotherapy. Won't know more until meeting with oncology group, which will likely be after the MRI.

‎Still waiting to have MRI. Richard convinced me to come downstairs to eat. I don't want to. I feel guilty eating while my baby lies upstairs begging for a Popsicle & I can't give it to him. This is sheer torture. Lord, please hold us in Your arms so we can get through this.

From Richard:  Caleb is healed. Mark 5:25-29. Caleb is reaching out to touch His garment. God is our healer.

From Richard:  MRI just started. It will be 1.5 hrs before he is awake and ready to eat. We are moving rooms to oncology now.

From Richard: Caleb is back in the room. He asked for agua, popsicle, and apple juice in that order. He is now asleep.

From Richard:  We had an initial meeting with the oncologist. We've been given a couple options. One is the "standard" treatment for this type of tumor. The other is an experimental study with additional medication. We need guidance on what to do. The "standard" treatment has a 15% survival rate after 1 year. The experimental study has unknown results, but hopes for a longer survival rate .
