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.

Just another bump. We should come home tomorrow if his kidney function further improves.

Please say a special prayer for Madison as she is having such a hard time dealing with all of this. I had just got off the phone with her thinking we were coming home and now here we are.

We are asking that if you see us out and about, please try not to touch Gavin and keep some distance is you are sick. Gavin can get sick very easily right now as his body took a big hit during this most recent illness.

So much for having good luck. Gavin was just too sick for the original plan so here I am waiting for Gavin to get out of the OR where he is having his line removed. He really gave us all a scare this morning but seemed to be doing a bit better before going downstairs. Now the issue is his access. Originally I had wanted a midline placed in, which is just like a normal IV in his arm only longer and can last longer. Well Gavin no longer has a midline so then the plan changed and they were going to place a femoral line in the OR. That fell through because not only does he have fungus but the OR was not set up for both a removal and placement.

I'm fully aware that the above statement probably makes no sense to most people but I needed to write it down and clarify it all in my own mind. Basically we are going to try to treat him without pulling out his line. We'll just have to see if it works.
Once again Adam and I are so grateful to each and every person who reads this blog. Your prayers and support are an inspiration to us. Thanks so much!
