Quick Update

Many of you have asked how Caleb's doing since surgery on Tuesday.  We've been able to space his pain medicine from every 4 hours to every 6 hours & decrease the dose from 12 mL to 8 mL.  He's still having some incision pain on his abdomen & his head.

Caleb is walking with assistance for a short distance.  He can move his right leg and arm, but prefers not to move them at all.

He still can't seem to get comfortable in any position for longer than 30 minutes. We spend most of the day and night moving him from one position to another.

We're praying we will start seeing more improvement in his mobility very soon.


  1. I agree with that, glad I caught this before shutting down. Thanks for the updates & have a good weekend.

  2. Thanks much for the update...I will be going to bed soon and that is when I pray for your son!!! I pray that he starts progressing!!!

    Love The Donaldson's

  3. There's nothing more tender than fresh incisions. It's just a crying shame you've all had to endure so much!

    I hope and pray life for Caleb begins to get better, the pain continues to subside and he's able to live like a normal little guy.

    I hope and pray that life for you and Richard begins to have more good days than bad. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

    Lots of Love,


  4. Praying that you all will be surrounded with God's comfort, peace and strength.
