Events...

Yesterday Gavin was admitted to the PICU because we lost his femoral line and once again his poor vein access reared it's ugly head. They were able to rewire a new line and also place a tempera iv in his jugular, which has since clotted off.

Overall Gavin is doing pretty well and he should be getting his new line in a day or so. He still has some strength to regain as he is still unable to get himself into a sitting position, which isn't helped by his very large belly.

Today has been a very boring day with the highlight being Madison vomiting all over my lunch after stealing a red beet off my salad and thus inducing the flow of vomit. We did get Gavin into his chair today and took him for a walk, which he enjoyed!

Hopefully tomorrow I will be updating from the OR waiting room!

In the name of JESUS, May the Lord pour out His healing Hand over your Gavin. May He continue to strengthen you and uphold you. My heart aches for you. I am a mom of five and I can tell that the strength of the Lord is upon you. His grace is definately over you. I wish I could just give you a big hug. God bless you. I follow this through Travis Cottrells site. May the Holy Spirit continue to bring you to my mind.

Lately, I have been crying a lot. All the pain and suffering really affects me. When I cry and pray, Gavin is at the top of my list. I wish there were something I could do to help! I don't know how you do all that you do! You will be greatly blessed for your constant devotion to your family and Gavin's precious life! My heart aches for you all. I know you don't know me, but if there is anything I can EVER do, it would be my honor! Thoughts and prayers, Emily

Hoping for better days and a private room of your own soon! A fresh, clean central line and no more bugs!
