We can face tomorrow! Easter must be just what the doctor ordered for Caleb! He got to attend his first church service in seven months... because it was a sunrise service!
No usual concerns of germs for Cal's compromised immune system in this beautiful outdoor space. Earlier, the sky was streaked with pink, birds were chirping, & it was a magical place to be, just picturing how Jesus rose again. We all needed that.
|Our lil' Easter Bunny.|
Caleb also enjoyed the silly side of Easter & really had a blast with family!
|We dyed dozens of eggs. Fun, fun.|
|Starring from left to right: Cal, Zach, Mommy, & Daddy & all of our pets.|

|Thanks to both families for making it so memorable.|
Caleb's blood levels jumped up this week, which is fantastic! No more transfusions this time. There was a chance it would take several more weeks for him to recover, but he's right on track. What a blessing!
|Comforting a nauseous little guy. Cal is enjoying his soft baseball blanket from one of
my dad's high school friends. Thanks,
Unfortunately, it was a tough spinal tap today, but Caleb had his big brother there to help get him through it!
|Some serious brotherly love.|
Zachary even got to help peel off stickers from monitors, & Cal thought that was cool.
Caleb got chemo injected into his spine and then two other types by IV. He has slept most of the day, & Zach and I got plenty of snuggles.
A few highlights from last week: a new invention from a friend at the boy's school. Since our hands get so dry with constant washing, he came up with this ingenious idea: Soshen!
|It's soap & lotion, all-in-one. Gotta love that. Thanks, Ben. Beautiful handmade cross by his brother Grant. Great job guys.|
Last but not least, Caleb got to meet up with his Kindergarten class for the first time since September at the Houston Zoo!!!! That was huge for him. He was a little shy about having to ride in a stroller, but just being in the wide outdoors and with people who've supported him so deeply, it was a perfect day for him!
|So fun to see his little buddies again.|
|After the zoo, they presented him with a scrapbook all the students in his class have been making for him all year long, so he will feel like he's part of the class. Incredibly special to him.|
