Caleb's Post Surgery Appointment

Caleb had is follow up today at the Dr's office. He is recovering amazingly well. You would never suspect he just had surgery on his back of all things just over a week ago. They let him get out of bed last Saturday (we came home that afternoon) and he has been on the go ever since!! He gets a little sore sometimes but it doesnt slow him down much!

The Dr. said he had a little bit of blood leak and clot in a pocket beneath the incision. It appears to be breaking down now but we will be keeping an eye on it to make sure it does not get any worse. Otherwise he is doing great and we dont have to see the surgeon again for another couple of weeks. We have a follow up appointment with his Colorectal Dr to talk more about the constipation issues he has had but overall he is doing wonderful!!

Thank you to everyone for all the prayers and generous emails while Caleb was in the hospital!!
