One Eyed Jack...

Can you tell by the above photo just how "great" our day was? We started out the day with Madison and I coming back into the room only to find Gavin covered in blood and 4 nurses trying to save his one and only IV -- it was saved, which was the only highlight of the day. Next Gavin decided kick the excitement up a level and surprise us all with a very badly infiltrated scalp IV, hence the above photo.

The major bummer of the day was the last ditch effort to save his line failed and we officially lost his Central Line. As we speak, he is back in the OR having a new line placed -- thank you to the OR staff for squeezing us in tonight.

He still has not received his blood due to lack of access and sadly he is really feeling the effects. Hopefully that will be first on the agenda once we get back upstairs. We should be able to come home soon as long as his fevers stay away.

Ohhh Gavin buddy I pray that you feel better really really fast. I'm also praying that your sister feels Jesus's arms around her and that she is filled with peace, and listens to what Mommie and Daddie say :) And Jesus wrap Karen and Adam in your arms and remind them that you love their little guy even more than they do and that anything you've done before you can do again, anything you 've said before is still true and you ARE a God who heals, so in the name of Jesus I rpay and say to these mountains, In the name of Jesus MOVE! I know that was a long post, but I just felt like I wanted to type out my prayer for you guys :) May you truly feel the arms and prayers that are being lifted up for you and for all those who care for Gavin. Love in Christ Raeann Schoudt
