Happy Sunday! :)
Cale had a pretty busy morning. The nurse said that yesterday he had a slight temperature so they did some blood tests and a few other tests just to make sure they aren't missing anything. Everything came back with out any big worries. The chest x-ray showed the same spot they had seen before. The nurse said they might address that tomorrow.
At 9am this morning it had been 24hrs that Cale had been capped! I just called the nurse station and he's still capped! If he makes it through the night, the trach might becoming out tomorrow! That's going to be so nice for him!
They also did Cale's weekly weight and he's down to 105lbs. He's still loosing so much weight even after they've increased how many times he's getting fed. I know he'll get it all back soon enough.
At 11:00 today, I hopped in my car and drove an hour to visit my sister-in-law and my two sweet nephews. :) The idea has been there for a couple weeks to go, but I haven't wanted to even think about driving a whole hour away from Cale. Thursday night, I realized that after 60 days of being in a hospital all day, everyday, that maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to get a way. It ended up being a really nice drive. I got to play outside with the boys and cuddle with them on the couch watching Princess and the Frog. It was a great afternoon! I was able to get back to the hospital and spend more time with Caleb before I headed for the hotel too. I'm excited for this next week to see what he's going to do next! First, it looks like the trach will be coming out so that is already another huge step, on top of whatever else he's going to surprise me with!
