So it's been awhile since I updated. But just wanted to let you know of a couple medical issues going on.
His Thyroid is really still bothering him, he seems very lethargic and moody at times. With levels like he has I am not surprised! He will go for another blood draw on the 19th to see where his levels are and then decide if and what medications are needed.
Caleb fell this past weekend, really hard. He doesn't not have the best balance and add that on to a yard he has never played in before, can be a recipe for disaster and it was. He was walking in the yard and then started to stumble and quickly lost his balance and fell face forward on to a sidewalk splitting his forehead wide open. His head made a noise when it hit the sidewalk that I don't think I will ever forget. He was cut pretty bad and we rushed to the ER where they did a catscan, which checked out OK, and then some stiches. He was a trooper. We don't think the numbing medicine worked at all for him so unfortunately, we think he felt all the stitches being done. Broke my heart. This is Caleb's first set of stitches not resulting from a surgery! He did not have much of an appetite for a day or two afterward but that could also be a part of his thyroid too.
Also, Caleb went back to his optometrist today for a checkup to see how his glasses were helping his lazy eye. His eye still has lazy tendencies, but when he blinks it corrects itself which is good. However, his doctor now want us to patch his good eye to try to strengthen the weaker eye for 2 hours a day for six months. We just saw her today so we haven't patched yet, but I will let you all know how it goes :)
Also, yesterday was Caleb's 4 yr Anniversary of receiving his Thymus Transplant! Thank you Dr. Markert and your wonderful team for all the amazing work you do!
Also, please don't forget if you are on Facebook there is a Caleb Hlebiczki is a Fighter page, where I post a lot of updates!
