Today I received the following email from our PiP Member, Beki

marge  thank you  could i ask for your  prayers? I have
had the hardest 9 weeks of my life, read  here   _Caleb is in  the Hospital_
http://www.sacrivox.com/caleb.html        and you will understand...this is
about my son...Also here Caleb Is In The Hospital blog http://www.sacrivox.com/blog/
(blog is our daily updates for friends and family)...go back to the beginning...when you  have time.....
briefly, he went to the hospital coughing up blood and they found  a mass in  his lung which was not supposed to be cancer but was...
when they  removed it there was a freak accident/complication which stopped the blood flow  to his whole body below his lungs and heart...
there followed many many hours of  surgery to save his life resulting in the loss of his kidney and most of his  colon.....three extremely major surgeries in 26 hours and many many complications since making his recovery very very slow and painful. He is only  21 marge...so much for someone his age to go through......I have been living at  the hospital 18 hours a day until last week when i really had to go back to  work. Please pray for him...for his recovery. for relief of his pain, for the  cancer to truly be gone

thanks so much,
beki

Please, yes, let Beki know that our prayers will be with Caleb and all of the family...

This is not good...so please let her know, Marge, if there is anything else we can do?

God be with Caleb, his family...

this is the time when prayers are heard.

Karilea~
I have sent her an email letting her know of this thread ... and asking what more we can do~

I did notice on the FIRST BLOG LINK a place for DONATIONS ... ?? ... maybe for some that might be the way to help, as Caleb has no insurance~

I'm sure each will find a way to help ... but I sure will find out from Beki what more is NEEDED~

Prayers are greatly appreciated ... as always~

I did a quick scan of Caleb's problems, but didn't find the donation link...yet. Thank you, Marge.

I am sure that those who can, will help out as they can...

in the meantime, we know how powerful our prayers can be...and it seems that from this site? Sometimes they seem a bit more powerful than we ever expect them to be, and in ways that are amazing.

Keep us apprised, my friend.

On the first link it appears as this -

Caleb Reese is in the Hospital

UPDATE! Ė Click Here for the Blog
UPDATE! Ė Click Here for the Photo Gallery

Hey everyone, I'm sure most of you have heard that Caleb Reese has landed himself in the hospital. Silly man's got some weird stuff wrong with his abnormal lung (the left one). Most of us have been quite well aware that there was something abnormal about him, but did not expect that it had anything to do with his lung. We still believe that this is not all.  

Now for the gritty details, Calebís left lung is abnormal and in fact he hasnít really used much of it his entire life.  Well, to be specific he hasnít used the lower half of his left lung his entire life.  For some reason, this abnormality has been causing a blood clot for quite some time now, and on Monday night in a fit of coughing rage, his lungs decided to expel part of that blood clot with a heap of fresh blood to keep it company on itís short trip to the outside world (staining his carpet in the process).

So he was rushed to Hoag Hospital in Newport, thanks to Neal Shelton, and admitted to the ER.  He spent a few hours with ER docs and nurses scratching their heads.  Then whisked us off to a lovely isolation room in the brand new Gross Womenís Pavillion.  Interesting side note for this tour, Caleb was not only the first patient in the room he stayed in, he very well may have been the first male patient in the whole building.

The nurseís were quite nice, and some were kinda cute too.  It wasnít until after the bronchioscopy, which is where they stick a tube with a lens on it down your throat, on Wednesday that we really knew what was going on.  They finally took him off Isolation deciding that he definitely did not have Tuberculosis, and we no longer had to wear those stylish masks!

As a side note, Caleb does not have Health Insurance and whereas he will be applying for aid from the state, this little jaunt into Surgeryville will most likely total to several thousand $$'s. If you would like to help out, you can make a donation using the button below. Sorry, it's not tax deductible, didn't have time to go thru the government red tape.
MAKE DONATION icon just below it.

Hope that helps.

Thank you all so much for your concern and most especially your prayers...we know that is what has gotten him this far. The doctors tell us over and over again how amazed they are (but God is amazing isn't He?) because Caleb should not be here....they say perhaps because he is young and, except for the cancer, was very strong...if he were a 40 year old he never would have survived all this. But he has survived, and now we must keep him in prayer until he is completely healed and I have to believe he will be.

Today we had a 10 hour benefit concert fo rhim at a local club, 10 top rated southern california tribute bands played for 10 hours with all proceeds going to Caleb. it was an incredible day...Caleb is well known to  and well liked by most of the bands who donated their time because he roadies for his boss when his bands play.There was so much love in that club today, and they raised $2500. We are so thankful.. But mostly I am thankful to have had the opportunity to see how much others care about him...how much they really love him too. He appaently touches many many lives we know nothing about...till today. Listening to them speak about him I am proud to be his mother. So...

SPecific prayer need tonight...he has been complaining of pain in his upper leg which is new...before it was all below the  knee.SO they di dan ultrasound at his bedside and found a bloodclot in his thigh. They are treating it with medication and we hope very strongly it will be gone in a few days. In the meantime, pleas epray fo rhis pain and fo rthe doctors to have wisdom in treating it. Thank you all again.....

quick update - well, it seems they will begin radiation on his lung and on the mass near his spine on fri or mon. They seem confident it will wipe out the microscopic cells in hi slung but less sure it will really help the other newer mass. The scan he needs to thoroughly look for cancer throughout his body is an outpatient deal...they don't have that machine at the hospital so ther eis no way to do it. I asked why aren't they rushing him down to do MRI's everywhere at least and they said we can do that so i said then please push for it...but why did I have to ask? why did they not just do that on their own? They seem still very reluctant to deal with the mass in his pelvic area near his spine.,.....I am not sure what they are afraid of. Even now when they are telling us they believe now (they did not before) it is part of the lung disease they do not want to do surgery when theytold us that is ALL you CAN do for this cancer...they seem to think he would not be strong enough but he is very much healed now....better to look and know for sure what we are dealing with I think.

We are checking mor einto City of Hope but that is a hard choice to make because it is a good hour away...no one could stay with him all day, we could only see him on weekends I work an hour in the opposite direction so I could never get up there in time to see him after work. And if something happened it would takeme sooo long to get there......if this i s all the time we have I don't want him to be alone somewhere far away.

Oh how I relate to your heartache. I'd sure vote for having him at City of Hope even though it's a trek.  They are highly rated for cancer work. I went to their site a lot when my dauughter,Rebecca (Whtdove) was undergoing treatment.  I'm asking our Lord to give you all strength to endure the treatment.

God bless you all.
