News :)

When you have a son on the other side of the world where day is night and night is day, you might tend to wake up during the night and check your phone for new e-mails (especially if your son is in the hospital). When I woke up around 12:30, this is the e-mail I found:

"Dear Leslie and Lance,
Home for a minute, so I wanted to drop you a quick note. Caysen looks soooooo much better this am and his temp is trending lower and lower. We were there about 3 hours and he looked great and smiled and talked and snuggled bunches. The neurologist came in with Caysen's pedi and we all talked and he decided that due to his marked improvement they would NOT tap his shunt today. Praise the Lord!!!! :) It is just so amazing to continue to see His hand moving on Caysen's behalf. He will have his blood retested tomorrow and if his white blood cell count and his CRP are going down then he will not need the tap. He will continue on IV antibiotics for the next 72ish hours and possibly go home on Monday if all continues to improve like it is now. We will keep you updated.


Things are definitely looking up for our little guy! Please keep praying that he continues to get better and that we can go get him soon :)
