Home Sweet Home...



We are home!  The excitement of walking through our front door never grows old.  Gavin is doing well, although his kidney's still need to improve some.  We are still working on fixing some levels and because ofthis Gavin has not been able to receive his TPN but rather has been getting a much less calorie mixture.  We will be doing labs tomorrow to check his levels again and then possibly again on Friday. Gavin's liver and spleen continue to be very tender so we need to watch him closely for any sign of infection, as this is usually an indication of illness.  

Friday we go pick up Gavin's wheelchair!  We are all so excited, especially my right wrist, as it takes a beating while trying to maneuver Gavin's bag :)

Glad you are all together again!! I love the smell of "home." Oh the places you'll go once you get the wheelchair...I know the feeling of heavy bags and the wear and tear of the wrists!!! Have fun enjoying one another.
