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.


  1. May God's Love, Peace and Blessings for ALL of YOU continue. You are so fortunate to have so many wonderful people helping you every step of the way, including those here, who read, and may or may not post, but certainly are praying for you.

  2. We never realize how many good people we have in our lives until we need help. Thoughts and prayers your way?
