Baby Caleb Wheeler

This sweet face is Caleb Wheeler. Little Caleb is almost a month old and has spent each day in the NICU at Children's Hospital at Erlanger. Caleb was born with Pulmonary Hypertension. His heart looks to be in great shape, but his little lungs weren't completely developed. He also had a collapsed lung, been on oxygen, and has a feeding tube. Caleb is getting stronger each day, and hopefully will be able to go home soon.
Unfortunately, this is a condition that wasn't planned on by the family. While they have been able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House, expenses have still incurred. Caleb would also benefit from an Owlet Monitor when he goes home. The Owlet will help to monitor his breathing while sleeping. 
Any support you would like to give to this family would be greatly appreciated. Our family is excited to get to see, hold, and spoil Caleb as soon as he is well.
