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.|
|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.|
