Biopsy is Done

Well all again sorry for the delay...we are still waiting on our fixed computer.

Caleb had his biopsy this past Friday. We won't know anything for at least a week. We are praying hard that the Thymus has grafted and they see some T-cell function. They have also mentioned that we MAY be heading back to Pittsburgh Children's around the 26th. However, this is only if Caleb stays healthy. So we are praying hard that he continues to stay healthy and infections stay away. We are hoping once we get back to Pittsburgh we can get Caleb home shortly after that to get him out of the hospital and decrease the chances of him being exposed to something. He has learned to wave and blow kisses-I have to say it is too cute!! He amazes us more and more and what a flirt.

My brother Ben worked miracles and got a company, Windcor, to donate windows for our home. Thank you so much to Windcor and Ben. Our friends and family worked tireously all day yesterday and got them all in for us. Thanks to Ben, Dad, Chad, Gary, Shani, Justin, Jimmy, Russ, Brian and more on getting those in for us. We have also found out that Pandhandle Restoration and Cleaning is going to clean our house for us thoroughly with the full gear for us at no charge. In addition, Sean Jamison, is going to put new flooring in Caleb's room at no charge. Thank you to all of you for such unbelievable generosity to our family. Again, we will not be able to thank you all enough.

Well all, I will let you know what is going on as soon as we know.

A couple prayers for a couple people who I know are going through some rough times right now: Josephine Wilson-who fell last week and broke her ankle and finger. I love you gram; The Welch family whose daughter is fighting AML (typer of cancer); Keep fighting Sam. Christi's family- who lost their house in the San Diego fires. I love you all and are praying for you all.

God Bless everyone!!

God Bless Caleb!!

I look forward to the day when I can blow a kiss to Caleb and he blows one back to me!! The love of friends and family teaches us to be so grateful for the blessings of the smallest joys - and the amazing huge ones.

My love to all of you-

I know Sarah has been really busy and without easy access to a working computer. I will let you all wait for a much more educated explanation, but for those of you who read the comments...
They are back in Pittsburgh!! Caleb had his first Palette repair surgery and the recovery has been challenging but he appears to be headed on the right track. Please continue to keep them in your prayers and hopefully Sarah will be able to post some really great news soon...like that they are home in West "by God" Virginia where they belong!!!

God Bless you and your families!!! GOD BLESS CALEB!!!!!!

We Love you Caleb. You are so strong, so beautiful, and oh so special!!!

Love-
Aunt Jen
