Gavin's New Wheels...



Our life has been forever changed -- for the good!  Gavin and I are both in love with his brand new set of wheels.  This was the best move we could of made.  Gavin now has an entire new world to explore, as he is upright and can see what is going on around him.  I am just loving the way the chair is easy to maneuver and also is great at carrying Gavin's load of medical equipment.

On another note, Gavin started with fevers again last night.  His Gastric drainage is telling us an infection is brewing as the bacterial overgrowth is very obvious.  Thankfully we have the absolute best doctor around who gave us a script for a seven day dose of both IV anti fungal and IV antibiotic.  Does he even understand how super-duper of a man this makes him?  Needless to say Adam and I are excited as we leave for vacation tomorrow morning and were worried our trip was going to have to be cancelled, for at least Gavin and I.

Please pray for a safe and healthy vacation!

I'm curious which make of "wheels" he got? I've been looking at all the options for Reagan and it's just mind boggling trying to decide which is best!! I'm so glad you found a good fit for Gavin!! I hope you have a wonderful vacation and don't forget to take some pictures (I know they'll be gorgeous)! Hopefully we'll have great things to tell you about HBOT when you get back!
