While it took a few weeks for Caleb to adjust last time, we know he'll do the same this time! He had to come home early from school today after feeling really weak.
|Now Caleb is up to 17 pills at a time. That's tough for him to swallow. Can't wait 'til Cal's bedtime routine only consists of brushing teeth and snuggling up with a good book!|
Besides good humor, Caleb is quite the adventurous little boy! On September 13th, we celebrated his life, since that's the date he was diagnosed two years ago. He wanted to try indoor skydiving. With special directions to his "air instructor" to help protect his port, we agreed to let him do it.
|Caleb's the lil' guy in blue. :-) He loved it!|
|Caleb found the strength to zip line with his buddies! (Thanks to the Mize's for the opportunity!)|
|Yes! That's Caleb on the top beam, about to swing down. There is no slowing him down!|
Did I mention mechanical bull-riding?
|Yes, he tried that, too!|
We believe Caleb's faith is what keeps him going so strong! His prayer warriors are playing a huge role in his quality of life. He entered some of his artwork in Texas Children's art contest for the Periwinkle Foundation. His love of God shines through for everyone walking down the halls of the hospital to witness.
|The third floor bridge of Texas Children's Hospital is filled with special art from patients and their siblings!|
|Caleb submitted the painting above him - with the cross in front of a sunset. He told me he wants people to realize that God sent him on a different path than most kids, but a lot of good has come out of his leukemia.|
|Zachary chose to paint something with lots of meaning for the Periwinkle Foundation. He says, "Just like bees & butterflies pollinate flowers to keep them growing, chemo - the color of periwinkle flowers - helps keep my brother alive".|
