Update...

We are home. Gavin is looking better however we were not able to keep him on the antibiotics -- for now. We may start doing random blood cultures to try to "catch" the bacteria when it is in his blood so we know what we are treating.

I had another long talk with one of the Diagnostic Doctors and she was was very helpful in clarifying a few things for me. I will not go into detail, especially since I'm trying to organize it all in my own mind. The one thing that I did walk away with was the reminder of how precious each day with Gavin and Madison is.

We are home for now and there will be a discussion between all three doctors this morning as to what we can possibly do to keep us home for longer than a week.

I cannot imagine the overwhelming nature of what you are facing. Here are some biblical words of encouragement.

"I took my troubles to the Lord, I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer." Psalm 120:1

Be glad for all God is planning for you. Be patient in trouble, and always be prayerful. Romans 12:12

We love you guys and as always will be praying along with you.

I am praying as always. I apologize for not commenting. I have been "driving by" blogs to catch up and that's it lately. I am glad you are home. I pray the Drs. can find a way to keep him home longer.
