Caleb's sats need to stay up for a few days to be completely out of the woods. I'm convinced we need to keep lifting him up, and I will keep expecting God to respond!

From blue to pink...
I believe with all my heart that my baby boy is experiencing God's healing hand on him... as you may know, we have been in a critical time right now, monitoring Caleb's sats at home, watching with baited breath to see if his oxygen level continues to drop and if his lips continue to be blue. I am FULL OF JOY as I share the news that Caleb's sats are going up! His little lips have gone from blue to pink in the last few days and we are seeing numbers on his oxygen monitor that we haven't seen in months. At first I started thinking of this whole thing as a fluke until I realized... this is no fluke. Caleb has had blue lips and low oxygen for weeks. Yes, I can think of reasons why this is, but the truth is simply this: we started praying, and others started praying, and I have seen with my eyes the color in his face begin to change, and have seen the evidence on the monitor last night and all day today... God is with my baby boy. I don't understand all of God's ways, why some prayers are answered the way I hope for and others not, but I have no doubt in my heart that this week God touched Caleb and changed his oxygen level. His sats are in the high 70s and low 80s and that's right where the cardiologist wants them. God has given us a gift this week and we won't forget it.
