Playdate at the Pool...

So far Gavin seems to be doing fairly well.  He is having quite a hard time with the heat and his body regulating his temp.  He has a constant fever when out in the sun, which confuses me to no end trying to figure out if he is sick or just unable to cool himself adequately.  

We have been enjoying spending time together as a family and right now we can't even deal with the thought of going back to the "hotel."  Yesterday we had a play date with my friend Dawn and her little girl Ava.  I got up the courage to put Gavin in a chair inside the baby pool.  He really shouldn't get his lines wet -- but every child should be given the chance to play in water!  Gavin didn't really enjoy -- but Mommie did and it helped keep his temp down!

Enjoy the photos...

Hey guys! I wish I had the guts to put Ryan in a "pool". On the note of temp instability, they do make cooling vests for kiddos, I only know this through my p2p network. Don't know how to get them but, if you join the parent-to-parent network, I bet they could help with any questions you may have. Enjoy your summer!

Since I've been reading your blog and praying for Gavin, I'm going back to the beginning and reading about Gavin's life, the pictures in this slide show melted me. He's so beautiful!
