|LOOK AT HIM GO!!!!!|
Candlelighters encouraged him to paddle his own canoe. He dug deep inside - and DID IT.
We wrote special messages on our balloons.
|Big brother, Zachary, even dressed-up his balloon, to make Cal smile.|
There's something powerful between horse and child. I think "Sugar Ray" shared a powerful message to Caleb's sad little eyes.
Caleb hopped on him without fear and again... that smile.
Later, in the darkness by a campfire, a spokesperson from every cabin came forward, made a wish, and lit a candle. We sent the candles away on a "wish boat" in the water. Before the lit-up ribbon sailed by, there was only darkness.
|Caleb's Daddy got a "buzz cut" to show him how cool short hair is!|
To wrap up the special weekend, we were each given a piece of yarn. We all tied our pieces together and we were told to remember that we all have a "common thread" and to count on one another in times of need. We hugged each other, while listening to "The World's Greatest" by R Kelly.
When we got home, Caleb completed 30 days of swallowing a total of 592 pills. (YES, I counted every single one of them and charted each victory!) :) Many days - 20 pills per day! We watched him go from drinking 4 huge glasses of juice to get them down in an hour to just half a glass in one minute!
He also just made the bold and incredible statement, "Cancer is not in my body anymore". I cried myself to sleep, but for the first time, with tears of utter joy. We will find out this Friday if his prediction is true. Please keep this brave, strong little boy in your prayers. We stand amazed at him. We know it's YOU, helping lift him up through prayer. God bless you all. The overall theme of this past weekend was based around Katy Perry's song "Roar". Ironic that one of our dear friends gave Caleb a stuffed lion, with an engraved name tag "Courage" & the Bible verse Deuteronomy 31:6 - Be strong & courageous. (Thanks Heather!) Caleb is proving to be just that.
