A Much Needed Update

Hello all....so sorry for the delay. . . we have been very busy to say the least.

Well we arrived back in Pittsburgh on November 27th. Caleb did have his palate repaired and the recovery was difficult. While he was recovering from that surgery the poor guy tore his Nissan wrap (the tightening of the tummy to help with his reflux). So needless to say we had to have the wrap redone. Then we finally went home after New Years-thanks to all who send cookies, presents, etc. to us while we were in the hospital for the holidays, once again you all are awesome.

We were home for about two days, 40 hours, and Caleb got really sick and was life-flighted to Children's he was hypoglycemic (low sugar), hypovolemic (low fluid volume), and septic (had an infection. He was fluid resuscitated twice and almost went into cardiac arrest he spent two weeks in the PICU and step down ICU. He fought back and recovered well and was able to come back home. He is now back on TPN (IV nutrition) and low volume feeds (just enough to keep his gut active). I have learned how to take care of the IV line-very nervewracking. We have visited the ER three times since we have been home in the last week and a half. Brian and I woke up this morning and we think he now has a UTI so I just put a urine specimen bag on him and we will send that to the hospital to see what that shows--poor guy.

So needless to say I am sure you can see why I haven't updated in awhile. I miss you all so much and cannot thank you enough for all the prayers.

Now that I hope we are somewhat settled (knock on wood) I will try to update more regularly.

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb!!
