The Latest...


And the latest news is -- absolutely nothing! Dr. M did come around later in the day and unfortunately didn't really have much to say. He saw that Gavin's spleen is very large and firm as well as tender but we really don't fully understand why this happens especially when his cultures are still negative. His fevers are slowly going away, in fact his last temp was 100.0. Gavin has only put out about 40cc's of urine in the past 24 hours. Yikes! We attempted a bolus earlier in the day but it only made him poofy so now we are giving another bolus along with a round of lasix to try to pull off the fluid.


In summary, we had a very boring day and now we need to see some pee!

Another pee-pee dance, o.k. I can do it...gosh darn, if we knew how much "rollercoasting" this adult life would be, I would've practiced more at Six Flags! I'd like to stomp and kick the ground like a toddler for Gavin, but it wouldn't change a thing, so I'll keep talking to GOD. I hope someone is supplying you with caffeine....

p.s. we are under house arrest-MONO this time, totally rare for babes as young as mine to get-only the Nagy's...
p.s.#2 When is Omegaven coming? We are starting the fish oil through the g-tube since our supply is diminishing :(

Prayers continue in California along with a pee-pee dance or two. Sorry things are at a stand still. Nothing more frustrating as the weekend arrives.Our prayers are that tomorrow yields answers and that precious Gavin and you find your way home soon. I know home brings with it a host of it's own issues and worries but at least you are home,together.The way it should be.Prayers for that and more.
