Caden came off oxygen during the day on Sunday 11/11/12. That was exactly one week after being discharged from his 8-day hospital stay at MUSC. Now that he is well we have to turn our attention to his back. Caden has VEPTR rods (adjustable Titanium rods) implanted in his back to treat scoliosis. These rod have […]

Seven years ago today at the Medical University of South Carolina our family was blessed with a new addition. Caden was born via C-Section early that Tuesday morning as the presidential election began that would result in the re-election of George W. Bush to a second term. The picture to the right is of Sherry […]

It is not often that we can say it has been a really good day in the hospital, but this one ranks well above average for sure…even though we are in the ICU. Caden’s surgery was completed in record time and he is doing very well with the recovery process. Praise God! Thank you for interceding on […]

I ran into an old friend and co-worker at lunch this week. We both work for the same division of our organization but rarely get to see each other due to tasking.  He follows Caden’s Page via the email updates and asked me how things were going with Caden.  As a result of his question […]

Caden has been home from the hospital for a few days now. Just before discharge we had a visit from a very strange looking doctor from the MUSC Pediatric Neurology department. At first glance you might think someone from the psych ward stole a lab coat and was playing pranks.  This guy had glasses as […]

He is still on about 2.0 liters of oxygen.  The oxygen is not related to the surgical procedure at all.  We had Caden on oxygen before the surgery.  Caden will see the infectious disease department again next week to see what might be the next step in […]

Praise God! The good news results of the biopsy of my (daddy’s) esophagus came back late this afternoon.  The nurse left me a message simply saying that everything came back fine from the biopsy.  The down side is that the procedure I had last week has not accomplished the task of stopping the sick spells […]

Caden’s day was not so smooth, but his night has been great so far.  He did have a fever again, but the doctors have finally agreed to add an antibiotic to treat sinus and ear infections as well as pneumonia.  They are now giving Caden Rocephin via IV.  There is no diagnosis of pneumonia, but […]

Caden has been moved out of the PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) into a regular private room (new wing) of the MUSC Children’s Hospital. That is the good news.  The bad news is that he popped a 102.6 fever this evening.  His heart rate has been very high as a result.  There has been no […]
