It All Makes Sense...

Caleb survived "Treatment Monday".  His blood count levels were abnormally low this week, so doctors had to postpone his chemotherapy for an entire week, because they want his body to be stronger.  Now we understand why he wasn't able to enjoy his special zoo outing.  A painful procedure brought many tears for mother and child, but a few good things also happened!

First off, incredible volunteers at the hospital let Caleb paint a fun cow picture for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.
This project helped keep Caleb's mind occupied & his hands busy in between treatments.
Hip hip hooray!  Caleb got to "breathe in" his medication for the first time.  The dosage will last 30 days.  Now how is that for advanced medicine?
Caleb first took a breathing treatment to open up his lungs, and prep them for breathing in his medications.

It took about 30 minutes for him to inhale the actual medication.  They filled his mask with bubble gum flavor, so that made it much more tolerable. 


  1. Oh how I remember the once a month brea thing treatments.

  2. I am so thankful that modern medicine has made the advancements that they have. I, too, have gone thru cancer treatment, and did not have all of these new ones. Sure would have been nice. Prayers continue for ALL OF YOU! Hugs.

  3. Just wanted you to know that I'm praying!

  4. Praying for you all. Hopeful for better days ahead.
