Caleb is still boring and we couldn't be happier. He lost a little weight today, which stinks, but helps convince us that the having surgery is better than waiting with no growth. He is working so hard to maintain that he has nothing left to add any weight.
Caleb's blood is still low on potassium. Low potassium levels can cause problems with heart rhythms. Luckily, they can give him IV and oral potassium to bring his levels back to normal. Right now, they are not very concerned. He is peeing out the potassium because of his diuretics and his kidneys are not showing any signs of damage at this point.
Today, they gave Caleb another blood transfusion. His hematocrit level was slightly low and because he is having surgery on Monday, they decided to juice him up a bit. Did you know that a form of doping is to use blood transfusions? He may not be capable of being a professional athlete when he grows up, but he can act like one!
