It has been an interesting few months for Caleb.
|His health has given us a few big scares, and his cancer has made us cherish family more than ever.|
|A few hours later, he was diagnosed with a rare terminal illness. |
|This is a brilliant man, who takes the time to teach the boys all kinds of things!|
|My dad is a loving man to his children, grandchildren, and has been a wonderful husband to my mom for 53 years!|
We are asking for prayers to help make my dad, Don Wilson, comfortable. To get him off of oxygen. To allow him some more time on this Earth. To keep him positive. To keep him strong. He's one of the Godliest men I've ever known, and that is going to get him and all of his family through this.
Caleb is unexpectedly off of chemo this week. His blood counts took a big nose dive. We are working to lower his stress levels. He can't go anywhere in public, as one germ could be detrimental for his health. It was tough for him to not go to the hospital to see his granddad, but luckily we're hospital-free now and my dad spent the evening with us last night.
To backtrack, Caleb wrapped-up baseball season, and we were so happy he got through it.
|The smile shows you how much he loves it.|
|He was so very sick and our attempts to cheer him up didn't work for days. It ended up "just" being a spinal tap leak, and we have never been so thrilled, relieved, and thankful in our entire lives.|
|Caleb was shocked that doctors gave him the "green light" to eat sushi. Crazy kid loves fish so much in any & every form.|
|Heather is the amazing friend who came up with the "Courage of a Lion" for Caleb at the first of his diagnosis, and he relies on that all of the time!|
|One of my besties, Beth, also came up with an all natural dye-free paleo cake and spent hours making it for him!|
|He loves being able to "legally" write on his walls!|
|The Houston School of Massage therapists on the course REALLY spoiled him this year. Now he's ready for next year's tourney RIGHT NOW.|
|My thoughtful boss also provided lots of fun entertainment for the boys!|
|Daddy David gets creative when Caleb isn't feeling well - and takes him on a walk anyway... the manly way to do it!|
|I'm also wearing my "Courage" lion necklace for added strength. Thanks, Laurie!|
