Update - Kathleen

Cale did great today being capped! They put the cap on at 8:30 am and didn't take it off until 6:45pm! His heart rate for the most part was staying good. I'm so excited for him! He pulled his trach out again...so it'll be nice to get it out! :)

Speech therapy went a lot better today too. He actually moved the ice chips around. She tried to get him to reach out for me and to use sound to get her to stop when she was pestering him, but he's not quite there. He did good though. PT and OT put him on the tilt table again. He didn't do too well with it. He moves around so much so they can't get a good reading of his blood pressure and he seems to get over stimulated with it. They'll continue to slowly work on that.

Hmm...what else? Oh! He sneezed! It was so happy! It was a big sneeze too! One of those little things, but are so big for me to see.

They did the xray yesterday and as far as his lungs everything looks good but they found a spot that they're not sure what it is, so tomorrow they're going to do a CAT scan to look into it more.

Keep praying for negative results with the infection!

  3. Can I just tell you again how proud I am of you. You are an inspiration to so many & a blessing to others. I believe that Cale will pull through, because I have faith in my Father in heaven.
