Not Sure What is Going On

So we have had some sort of virus(s) going through our house.  Caleb woke up Sunday sick and then Camryn woke up Wednesday with a tummy bug.  We had though Caleb shared his germ with his sister, but he then came home yesterday sick from school. So is it the same bug, different bug, a medical issue?  We shall see.  Please keep my kiddos and family in your prayers.  It has been a rough week with illness and some other family issues going on and we could use some thoughts and prayers.  Thanks friends.

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb and Camryn!!

Blood Draw and Ears

Hi all,
So the blood draw went well.  It was one stick with some maneuvering.  They had to wiggle the needle around once they stuck him to get in to his vein.  His veins are so little and tough, from being stuck so many times, that sometimes when they think they have a good vein, it still proves tricky to get in to the vein. But they got in and now we wait for the results. 

We noticed in the last few days Caleb has been pushing on his hearing aid a lot when we think he is trying to hear better.  We also noticed he has more crud coming out of one of his eyes too, again.  So we called his pediatrician and got in there ASAP.  Diagnosis, double ear infection.  We think this may be why he was running a fever too on Saturday. He is such a trooper.  You really, despite Saturday, wouldn't even know he was/is sick.  They say CHARGE kiddos have a high tolerance to pain.  Well the doctor said the ear infection was nasty and this proves his tolerance is high. 

Thanks all for checking in and your emails and text messages.  Thanks for keeping us in your prayers!

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb and Camryn!!

Good Vibes Please :)

Hello all,
Well Caleb had a rough weekend.  He woke up early Saturday morning and wasn't feeling well.  We think he was having some constipation issues, which in turn for kids with shunts can be even more uncomfortable as that can cause headaches and pressure as the fluid from his brain has nowhere to drain.  We were told a while back that some kids with shunts, who get constipated, can experience intercranial pressure and headaches and we are wondering if this is what ocassionally happens to Caleb when he has his GI issues.  Poor kid was pretty miserable. He did wake up Sunday a much happier kid, thank goodness.

I will be taking Caleb after school today to get blood work done to check his levels for his new dose for his Thyroid Disease.  Please send him good vibes that it is a quick one stick test.  Last time, was not and I hope this time goes a lot smoother.  Thanks!

God Bless you all!!

God bless Caleb and Camryn!!
