Up 'n Movin'!
A trainer & family friend is helping Caleb build strength through simple stretching exercises. (Thanks Peter!) We're so happy to see Cal UP & are anxious for him to get more active. Caleb's chemo causes odd aches and pains, but stretching seems to bring sweet relief. It's great to have a Pro with creative & fun ideas. Many exercises include a visit from the "tickle monster", because we know that laughter is great medicine too. :)
Change of heart! Caleb's gone from eating about 20 meals a day on steroids to wanting NOTHING. We haven't been able to talk him into taking one bite of food all day, so the roller coaster of ever-changing side effects continues. We're pushing fluids to keep him hydrated. He seems at peace & is enjoying only taking 5 pills per day, versus 20. We try to find the little joys each day. It's working. Smiling seems to come more naturally these days. We feel your prayers & know that you've "had our backs" the entire time. God bless you all.
