some good news, but please keep praying.  He's still very, very sick.
 
From Caleb's grandmother early this morning:
I just checked in on Caleb....They have been able to pull some fluid off while maintaining his blood pressure, have lowered one of the cardiac support meds and labs are looking much better! Mom and Dad are still resting. Keep praying and praising...♡♡♡

From Caleb's mom just now:  
Caleb has had a very busy morning. Although he's been tolerating the change in breathing machines the last few days, he hasn't really made any progress. His lungs are still collecting lots of fluid. They had to basically put him back in ECMO this morning, but it is still right heart ECMO, not both sides like before. This time it is more for his lungs and not so much his heart. This way they can oxygenate his blood and do all the work for his lungs. They are still very sick. They need to be able to continue getting more fluid out of them since they aren't really improving and they needed to put him back on a regular vent to do that and also oxygenate his blood for him. The oscillator could do that but the regular vent can't. He didn't tolerate these changes super well and dealt with lots of low blood pressures. After having to give him lots of volume, a transfusion and starting him back on dopamine, they seem to have stabilized. Caleb is still very sick. His heart actually isn't the biggest worry at the moment. It seems to be picking up a little better, but his other organs are really struggling to get in line. He has had a huge inflammatory response to so much trauma and he has lots of edema in his lungs and other places.

Gosh, if it isn't one thing it's another. What a trooper he has been, though. Sending extra prayers.

Caleb has been in our prayers and even though I follow the updates on your FB, I joined the group to follow updates from Caleb's parents as well. Things were improving over the weekend and I've not checked FB this morning yet. Still praying for Caleb and his family. There is so much power in prayer!
