Well, I am back in NE & we had a safe journey. Thank you to my brother & his wife for the ride home! It is with such mixed emotions that I am here. Caleb's dad & grandpa will be staying with him until another family member is able to go. For the moment I need to take a respite to keep the balance in my life, because this is going to be a very long process. The mom in me wants to be there for every visit, but I remind myself that Caleb is in God's hands ALWAYS.
I spoke with Marc this morning & Caleb was able to get some sleep last night (thank you Lord) which led to a more "normal" Caleb at the visit today. That could change by the 1:00 visit. I remind myself that he is heavily medicated for pain, and he will not be himself, really, for quite awhile.
He is experiencing a low grade fever that they are trying to determine the cause of. So far the cultures haven't shown anything. Please keep the threat of infection in prayer.
I would like to take a moment to thank all of you for the support that has been given. WOW! God is so good to provide such an amazing support base to help us all through this, whatever our role is. Whether it be family that is with Caleb is person, family & friends that are with Caleb in prayer, Todd & Tammy for holding down the homefront, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Grandparents, all of Caleb's wonderful friends, the people that really didn't know him but have been touched by this situation & led to send a card, the support through our respective jobs through this trial, all the churches that have him on their prayer lists, I am hoping that I haven't forgotten others & if I have, please forgive me, but I/we THANK YOU all so much!
God will get the Glory through this. That is my utmost prayer!
I will be calling to get an update every morning & will post it as soon as I am able.
p.s. When I ask Caleb to smile for me, he flashes the most beautiful smile!!
