We've been awake since 3:10. Caleb woke up saying, "Mom, they stuck this in me AGAIN!" His IV had to be reconnected at midnight in preparation for his procedure this morning around 7:30. His hand is very sore. Thankfully, he'll be able to have the IV removed from his hand after this procedure. Really need more sleep now. More later.

Caleb's hand has really been hurting this morning where his IV is inserted. Richard & I have been praying for him. He turned to Richard and said, "Daddy, thank you for praying for me." Makes me so happy to know we've been raising him to be a man of prayer.

From Richard: In the midst of his storm, Caleb says "thank you for praying for me." God is at work in this mans body. Lord thank you for healing my boy Caleb.

From Richard: I want to thank everyone for your prayers. Our God is the healer. It is through his grace which we have peace. God never said it would be easy. However he did say He would never leave us. He gives us the hope and I am thankful for this. Lord thank you for your healing.

Caleb was just brought down to the day surgery unit. His procedure is scheduled to start at 7:30am & should take about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Then to recovery before heading back to the room. Lord, guide the hands of the surgeon so this port is inserted quickly, easily & with no complications. Amen.
He said when he comes back to the room, he wants donuts & IHOP.

Caleb did well having his port inserted. He got back to the room about 10am & immediately asked for a donut. He's been eating small bits since he returned. Full breakfast spread: eggs, sausage, ham, pancakes, French toast sticks, strawberries, & milk. More later.

The doctor has said that (barring any complications tonight) we will be released tomorrow morning!!! We have a 10am appt tomorrow then we'll get to go home. Caleb is very excited about leaving. Please pray there are no complications so we can still be released tomorrow. Thanks again for all your prayers! It means so much to us.
