Update...

I thought we would be out of here by now -- I was wrong. Gavin's labs are still not right. They are still trying to correct the electrolyte imbalances and bring his BUN and Creatine, which are measures of kidney function, down. I was told that we may be able to go home tonight but I'm choosing not to believe anyone until I am fast asleep in my own bed tonight.

These past few days have been so difficult. Our family is not together and I miss Madison and Adam terribly. Gavin is asking for Madi and well.. that just about breaks my heart.

Please God... give us a small break.

I pray daily for that break for you guys. Somethings got to give.I will continue the prayers and you all continue to try and stay strong and faithful.

I hope tonight's the night - maybe the WHOLE family should sleep in your bed!! I can't imagine what you're going through, Karen. I know you are a reluctant hero...but believe me when I tell you that your strength, even when you feel you have none, is an inspiration to many. Including, I'm sure, your children. What a lesson they are learning from you...how to remain faithful and believing in the midst of despair.
Thinking of you....
