Yesterday, we found out that Caleb's surgery will be on Tuesday, January 18th.

The visiting nurse checked Caleb out on Monday. He was 10 lbs, 14 ozs. That means that he would have gained an ounce. I think that is a little misleading because last week I did not change his diaper before he was weighed and the nurse zeroed out the scale with a diaper this week. I am claiming three ounces for the last week - either way, it is going up not down, so that is good.

Caleb's oxygen saturation was about 70%. The low oxygen saturation and the slowing weight gain are the indicators that it is time for the next surgery. Now if we can just keep him healthy for the next two and a half weeks.

We think that he is having a little trouble with acid reflux, so the pediatrician increased his Zantac dose. Hopefully this will help. When he has a problem, he screams or looks like he is choking. It looks very painful for him and it scares me!

Overall, everyone seems happy with where he is at. He is getting such a personality and really likes to smile at new people. So far, so good!
