Day 17 - Going bald

Facebook post from 08/24/2012

Today was hard. Chemo finally caught up with Caleb and he asked me to shave his head so he would have less hair on his pillow and sheets. He was pretty upbeat this morning, but around noon he just got so tired that he fell asleep sitting up and he also had great pain in his left shoulder that brought him to tears. It is so hard to watch my boy endure this...but he is being really strong and he has a lot of supporters! I know that some of his cousins and uncles have already (or are going to) shaved their heads to show support for him. It is comforting to know that so many of you are praying for him and our family! Thank you doesn't seem to be a big enough word...

ESL: This is so sad to hear. What the pain in his shoulder from is PICC line??? I used to get some pretty bad pains in my should area from my PICC line, I put a heating pad on and it helped take away the pain. You guys are amazing stay so faithful as you go through these trials.
