Prayer Chain, Please

Caleb had to be admitted to Texas Children's Hospital on Tuesday.  His blood counts have continued to hit an all-time low, and his white blood cells have now bottomed-out. 

Doctors are racing to test everything possible to figure out why, as he has been off of chemotherapy now for 9 days, to help the numbers go back up.  They just started a fourth IV antibiotic, in an attempt to treat whatever is causing this and to help keep his fever down. 

A blood transfusion does not help white blood cells, so there is nothing anyone can do now.  We just have to wait for his levels to start to rise on their own.  

Caleb is not allowed visitors, as his body is too vulnerable right now, so his family of four is there by his side.  I slipped out of his room, before the sun came up, for work this morn.  My managers are amazing!  It's a huge blessing that they allow me to leave right after the newscast to be with Caleb, so I will be back at the hospital before he even wakes up.  His dad and big bro are by his side until then. 

We are praying that God wraps his arms around his body, protects him from germs, and raises his blood levels.

Thank you for always being there for our family.  We keep reminding Caleb:  only 5 months of treatment left!  We're almost there.  God bless you.
