Surgery Over & Resting Quietly

Caleb's surgery is over and he's back in the room resting quietly.  The doctors said he did really well through the surgery. They were able to pull about 8 cc of fluid from the cyst. A CT scan is scheduled for tomorrow to check the progress. He has an incision at the base of his skull where the catheter was inserted. There is a tube running under the scalp midway up his head to a incision about 3 inches long where the reservoir was placed.

He's already had 3 popsicles and is ready for his chicken nuggets, mac & cheese, & a cheeseburger. As soon as the orders from the docs are released, I can place his order. We're going to let him sleep until then.

Thanks so much to everyone for all of your prayers. We so appreciate it.


  1. So thankful to hear he's resting well. Praying for good news on the CT.

  2. Thanks so much for the update. We are very thankful all went well. Now, we will pray for a good report from tomorrow's CT scan. My prayer for you and Richard is peace beyond all understanding will be all over you both.

  3. Thanks so much for the update. You have all been our thoughts and prayers all day. My nephew has called me every hour asking how Caleb has made out. :) He's 35, but has Cerebral Palsy and is more like a pre-teen. It sounds good so far, I'll be anxious to see what the CT scan says.

    Love & Hugs,
