Kai and I are by Caleb's side bright and early this morn, anxiously awaiting the arrival of Max and Jan...Caleb has had yet another slide backwards- but only a slide, I think..As the day progressed yesterday, he became more lethargic and shut down. After reading the CAT scan, the Doc's appeared to say that his left cranial ventricals are swollen and that he will have to taken off the intrathecal IV..the one line which directly feeds the brain his antibiotics. (which is what has improved his condition so far) The Doc's say this is pretty routine, but we are always disappointed and dismayed when this sort of thing happens. Frankly, we were just getting used to the full bore, full on healing mode and I know this back and forth is to be expected, but it is trying. We will spend the day with him and I will report back to you in the morn -- nothing more to say!
