Another Amazing Day!

Today is the beginning of a short week of radiation. Caleb does not like to have his port accessed at all, but he still handles it like a trooper.  After radiation, he came home and ate his 2nd breakfast. Then we all got ready to go to the park (Caleb's suggestion).  The boys played on the slides, climbed, jumped, rolled, & swung for about 45 minutes.  This may not seem like much to some, but 3 weeks ago, Caleb was only able to climb the slide one time before he was so exhausted he wanted to go home.  Today, we almost had to drag him away. And, that was only because his dressing over his port had come loose and we needed to get it taped back together to keep any problems from arising.

We stopped at Sonic to pick up lunch then headed home. After lunch, Caleb went with me to have Candy Cane's stitches removed. We got home and then Caleb asked to take a walk around the block. Richard and I discussed whether we should bring the 3-wheeler with us because if he got tired halfway around, neither of us would be able to carry him back because we were taking the dog too. So, we told Caleb we were taking the 3-wheeler for Caden to use. That way, if Caleb got too tired, we'd just switch out kids in it. He walked the entire block!!  Sometimes even running ahead of us for a bit!

God's glory shines all over him as we watch his healing taking place. Enjoy some pics from the park today:
