Liver seems to be producing Protein

So the liver seems to be producing protein...so where is he losing the protein is the question.

Well . . . I did not get to post about something they found before we left Duke. About two weeks before we left Duke they found a questionable mass in Caleb's chest. They tested for different types of Cancer and do not believe it is a cancerous type of mass. They are wondering if it is a lymph fluid build up. Possibly due to a lymph vessel getting nicked during one of his surgeries and leaking out into his body. So. . . when we left Duke they suggested we keep an eye on this mass to see what happens. Well now that he is losing protein, Dr. Markert is wondering if he is dumping the protein into his mass. Dr. Markert suggested that they do another x-ray to see what his mass looks like. I haven't heard back from any of the docs at Pittsburgh yet so. . . we will see. His Albumin gets checked again on Monday so we will so how that level is. I hope and pray that it stabilizes and starts going back up.

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb!!

P.S. I will be adding pictures to this post hopefully later on today.

Hey Hlebiczki's...just wanted to say hi and let you know I'm thinking of you...I love you guys!

I'm so jealous that Jenny was able to see Caleb (through the glass door of course) on Saturday! I hear he has a head full of hair and is quite handsome! :) I also heard that Haleigh was flirting with him and blowing him lots of kisses! :)

Can't wait to see some pics when you have time...

God Bless & Lotsa Love,
Jess :)
