It's not Teething-Prayers Needed

So the docs just came in and Caleb's labs for today are really out of whack. Some of his electrolytes are really abnormal, which they are hoping they can fix with a new bag of TPN (IV nutrition). His hemoglobin (blood level) has also dropped. They believe that these abnormalities are either due to fluid overload (which he doesn't look like he has visually) or that he is starting to show early signs of infection. They also said in the back of their minds there also has to be concern for bleeding as the hemoglobin has dropped. They are going to change his TPN, adjust his diuretics, and do a urinalysis.

Honestly, I am so scared for him. This just isn't fair to him!! He has proven he is a fighter, I don't understand why he has to continually prove it. Every time the word infection comes out of their mouths I feel sick. The last two times he has gotten an infection we never really knew what he was fighting.

They are going to pull another set of labs tonight at 8:00 to see how his electrolytes are. I am just praying so hard that this is just a fluid/TPN issue and not an infection. Please pray for Caleb!!

God Bless Caleb!!
