Caleb had a really rough night last night. He had two episodes where he stopped breathing and instead of getting himself out of it, the nurse had to give him a nudge.
The reflux is causing him a lot of discomfort and it is causing him to be congested and that makes it hard for him to breath.
They had to put him in a oxygen dome (it lays right over his head) and it's suppose to cut out the humidity in the air he breathes. The hope there is that it will help the congestion.
Praise God that he knows exactly what Caleb needs and I ask that you call out to Father that he would abundantly bless Caleb.

Today he weighed 3lbs 12 oz.
Tomorrow he gets to try and eat from a bottle!
All big steps for a little boy. The nurses keep making comments to the fact that he shouldn't be doing all of this yet. Prayer works!..and keep praying that Caleb will be strong enough to get all he needs from the bottle so he can move on to eating from momma and then get his feeding tube removed.
Keep reminding them of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen.
2 Timothy 2:14
v15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

Now in his nursery Caleb is famous for two things: 1. He has the cutest hiccups and 2. If you are in charge of Caleb's care it's not if he will poop on you it's a matter of when. We have video of the first and we will spare you having to see #2...it is very funny though..I got to see Valerie experience Caleb's #2 talent the other night. He has yet to get his old man...that's my boy!
He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Now on to Caleb news...big boy is up to 3lbs and 10 oz! His feedings continue to go really well and it has been amazing watching him grow on a daily basis.
No more oxygen! Last night it was determined that he was doing well enough not to need the oxygen anymore.
We know Caleb is in the right place right now but we miss him. We are ready to have our family all together. Please pray that God will continue to bless Caleb's growth.
Today's message at Jason's funeral was... how do you live out God's love and pass it on to others?... how do you pour out to others what has been poured into you? Thank you to everyone that pours out to our family what has been abundantly poured into you.
Do everything without complaining or arguing.

His feedings went really well today and he kept everything down. Today he weighed in at 3 lbs and 8 oz! The nurse told me yesterday that over a 7 day period they like to see babies gain 24 grams and he had gained 27 grams (I believe those were the exact numbers).
Caleb is doing great. It's amazing we can see him growing and visibly changing everyday.
For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility.
Bless you guys!
