Home Sweet Home!!!!!!!!

Caleb is home! After 8 weeks Caleb was given the final signoff with a clean bill of health and sent packing on Thursday morning.

We want to thank all the great nurses in the NICU at Baylor Grapevine. They did an awesome job and they blessed us through their caring of Caleb while he was there. If you need a great place to have a baby go with Baylor Grapevine.

Cat and dog don't seem to have a problem with Caleb home. Jayce and Kallie come back from Round Rock on Saturday so we are excited to have the whole family under one roof...Finally. Praise God for the journey.

We will continue to post on Caleb's progress with updated info, pics and videos.

Praise God from whom all good things flow.

End in Sight !!!! / Jayce, Kallie and Caleb reunite



So today Jayce and Kallie were able to see Caleb in person for the first time in over a month. They lifted the ban on children 12 and under from coming into the nursery because of the swine flu. On Friday Kallie will get to hold her little brother.

Weight update: 5lbs 11oz

So the end in sight part...Valerie discussed with the doctor today Caleb MAY be able to go home next week with monitors. They would really like to see his brady's go so they are going to keep him at least another week. He would go home with monitors that would tell us if his oxygen saturation level drops or his heart rate drops.

Thank you for praying for miracles and God's favor!

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.

BONUS...check out the video of Caleb checking out the picture Jayce made for him. It's a message that the nurse's love...Eat, Breathe and Be Happy. Why do we make it so complicated?

Tube-Less !


Sunday night Caleb, as he has done many times before, ripped out the feeding tube from his nose. The only difference is the nurses left it out! Caleb has been feeding from his momma or the bottle since and we hope he plans to keep it that way...another step home!
This is the first time since Caleb was born that he hasn't had something stuck up his nose or mouth or taped to his face. Pics to come...he is such a handsome boy.
From time to time Caleb has been having these apnea episodes where he stops breathing. At this point that is what is keeping him from coming home. Everytime he has one it means another week in the hospital.
Have we mentioned before that we are ready for our baby boy to come home?
Weight update: Caleb is up to 5lbs 10oz
Once again I want to thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers. Thank you to everyone who has brought us meals...we are so blessed to have such amazing friends and family.
Then he took the cloak that had fallen from him and struck the water with it. "Where now is the Lord, the God of Elijah?" he asked. When he struck the water, it divided to the right and to the left, and he crossed over.
