According to the site,

Caleb is making steady improvement but it has not been without a cost. He has been through 3 surgeries so far. During this last one the doctors finished the removal his right eye and they also had to remove some of his brain tissue. This may not sound like good news but it actually helps. The tissue that doctors removed was already dead and by removing it the swelling of Caleb’s brain that has been slowing his recovery will now be somewhat reduced.

Once again, it seems as though there is a light to every dark tunnel. So far, Caleb has received over $100,000 in donations to assist with medical expenses, according to an article from The Associated Press.
