Step Down?!?!?

Well for those of you who didn't get Aunt Jen's email. . . There is a rumor that Caleb may be going to a step down room today. This depends upon the results of an echo they did today. If all looks good and a room opens up we will be heading back to the floor!!!

Brian and I went over to visit with the nurses on the floor too to see if they had heard the rumor also and they did. They also are trying to pull some strings for us and get us a bigger room (as most of the rooms are very small). Thank goodness!

We also got a visit from Dr. Markert today and she will be on vacation next week BUT . . . she did say that if he continues to make baby steps in the right direction that they are going to start looking for Thymus Tissue for Bubber!!

His girth (belly) has been rather large and this happens when he feeds. They don't have him on his max volume of feeds because we don't think his gut can handle it at this time. We are hoping that his lipase and other enzymes along with his electrolytes stay with in the norm as they have since he has been out of surgery. However, we are not sure if bypass effected the enzymes or if the feeds being stopped for a couple days effected the lowering of the enzymes. . . we will have to wait and see.

Well all. . it is my turn to go back in and visit. I will post more later and will post the pictures as promised.

God Bless you all.

God Bless Caleb!!
