Chnage of Plans -- For Now...

Yesterday I spent the majority of the day packing and getting meals ready for our trip to the hospital. Yesterday evening after I had come up from packing the car,  I went to take Gavin's temp one more time and ---- the fever was gone.

Normally you would think I would be very happy about this right?  Well not really.  All it means is that we have to unpack a weeks worth of life and repack it again in, most like, the next week and do it all over again. Sometimes I just wish we could get it over with, get back on IV antibiotics and have some safety.

So here we are.  At home, trying to just remember to live in the moment and not play the "let's-wait-and-see-when-Gavin-will-spike-a-fever" game!

Thanks for your prayers.

Hey Karen,
I continue to pray...and hope...and wish. You and your family are constantly on my heart. I'm glad his fever disappeared (magic?!) but I'm sure the up and down is getting kinda' old. I am a *little* sad you're not there - I'll be there Monday with my Gavin to get a swallow study. Keep living for the moments!!

Hello. First time reader. I just found your blog today and began reading it. What struck me the most is that I, too, have a Madison and a Gavin. My Gavin has Autism. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

I finally met Gavin last Sunday at Morningstar. My heart goes out to him and I pray for you all constantly. He is one special little boy. Those huge blue eyes just got me.

I am glad you do not have to go back to duPont right now. Still praying.
