We finally were discharged from the hospital after 3 weeks! Denae, Caeden and I were so excited when we got released at around 10:00 am. We had developed some very good relationships with some of the nurses at the hospital and they all cheered when we walked out. The nurses were sad to say goodbye but also very happy that we were being discharged. They all said they were going to miss Caeden. Denae and I learned that our son is already starting to flirt with the girls!

Caeden was originally admitted into the hospital with a line infection and then this past Monday we found out that he had developed a condition called cholangitis. He is on an antibiotic called Zosyn. We have to administer this three times a day over a period of about 30 minutes each time. After his 14th day of treatment we will discontinue the antibiotic and hopefully he will not have to go back on any antibiotics any time soon.

Thank You all for all of your continued support and prayers through this very difficult time. Everyone has helped us stay positive throughout this and while in the hospital. Caeden only looked sick when he had his fevers and other than that you would never be able to tell that he has this progressive liver disease.

Denae and I were able to see Caeden's personality prosper while in the hospital. He has become very active and loves to lie on his back. He likes to move his legs and arms really fast. When he wakes up in the morning he is always very happy and loves to smile. He has the biggest smile!


  1. You are so blessed by that beautiful little boy. I know times have been hard and scary, but the three of you have learned what it is to be a family in such a short amount of time. Families are not always easy and they are sometimes scary but, they are always worth it. The smiles and joy are worth it all. He is so cute, I love the pictures. He has the biggest eyes and the brightest smile. It makes me so sad that I am not around to watch him grow. But in these pictures I see what wonderful parents you both are. I am proud of you both. I hope you will continue to update this from time to time when you can. I am very happy that you are home and that Caeden is doing so much better. I love you all and I know God's hand has touched you.

  2. Oh I hope everything becomes easier now. I am happy for you guys that he is home and hopefully home to stay. I am so bumbed I didn't get to see you when I was down there. Hopefully soon.

  3. Hey guys, Caeden is getting so big. His cheeks are actually pudgy. And he so does look like a model. Your dad said that Caeden has to have more tests. You know you are in our prayers and will continue to be. Stay strong he will be better soon. We love and miss you all!
