Well I should have posted last Friday because we had another DR visit for "nasal cavity" cleaning or as we affectionately call it the "nose picking"! The Dr. numbs Caleb's nose by spraying stuff in it then uses suction and a long curved tweezer like thing to clean stuff away so he will not get a sinus infection while he is healing. Caleb needs to use a nasal rinse 2X's a day and lots of saline nasal spray so the weekly Dr. visits will be effective. We go back again tomorrow at noon.
As of last Thursday, we will have about 3 more visits, then a CT scan mid-August at which time Dr. Newkirk said he will be able to tell if the tumor is growing or not and based on that we'll know what happens next! Caleb is feeling very good, has been released to go back to Taekwondo but must "take it easy", which means no head shots while sparring!!
