I am in the recovery area with Caleb right now, watching him sleep. Thank you so much for praying for him, and for me, today - that has been so comforting. I want to give a quick update to you while he's still sleeping.
The endoscopy went fine - a few irregularities but nothing to account for the pain, though the doctor biopsied in two places.
However, in the colonoscopy there were two more areas of interest. He took additional biopsies in both areas and will try to rush the results back from pathology by Friday.
The plan is to continue on with the pill cam as soon as it can be arranged. There is an area of his intestines that was not visible by either of the procedures done today. They want to make sure that absolutely every area has been seen.
Caleb will sleep off the anesthesia and then we'll head back to where we're staying, returning later on this week for the pill cam we hope.
My mom, dad and brother were here with us this morning, but it's just Caleb and I this afternoon. It's actually peaceful and quiet here right now. Just me, Caleb, the nursing staff and the Lord!
Thank you so much for your outpouring of e-mails and prayers for us. It means more than you can ever know.
PS. Back at home tonight...still high pain. Oh Lord, come near to Caleb as he continues to suffer.
