Loss For Words...

Gavin


I really have nothing to post. Gavin is still running high temps and this time the Tylenol didn't bring it down at all. Clinically I think he looks worse, but his culture is still negative. We are going to give another IV med to try to help with the fever and make him feel a little better.


The IVIG went well yesterday and he actually seemed to be feeling a little better after the infusion, but that was short lived


I'm here alone with Madison today and to be honest I am so tired. Thankfully, the Child Life program is open today so I just dropped her off, where she hopefully will have a fun filled day of play time.


I am so frustrated and tired of all this. I just wish we could have the next year spelled out for us -- I want to know exactly how things are going to go, which I know, no one can tell us. We are just looking for some peace amongst this chaos -- I know it's there, I know He is there, it's just so hard to find sometimes.

I wish I had some words for you. Problem is...I'm not God. That's a real stinker sometimes. For you as much as for me. Answers....... Everything would be easier with answers. There are times where I have literally begged for them. I am sure that is where you and Adam are at right now. Praying for all of you this day and every other. Lord, bring them peace. Bring their bodies rest and their spirits peace. In Jesus name, Amen.

I cannot begin to imagine what this must be like for you and your family. You are right, though. HE is still here, HE just may not be evident. Stay strong and know that many of us out here, friend and stranger alike, are praying for Gavin and your whole family that you will experience some peace. Hang in there :)

I was forwarded to your Blog from a friends blog I was following.. I was immediately captivated by your little boys beautiful blue eyes.. He is just beautiful and what a fighter.. We are strangers, but I have a little boy with his own set of health issues from having Down Syndrome.. I am praying for your peace and that of your precious little boy.. Believe me the Lord is right with you, you may not always feel it but he IS there. God Bless you all..

I am at a loss for words as well. All I can say is that Gavin (and your entire family) is in my constant thoughts and prayers.

I send constant prayers for strength and peace to you all.At times like this, I find it so difficult to find clarity with plan and purpose.So instead I stay ever faithful that somehow,someway He will see us through it.I have often wished for a crystal ball,the ability to see the future but have opted out for fear of seeing something that which would leave me unable to carry on with the here and now and more importantly the chance that the miracles and wondrous moments to come would be spoiled.I pray so hard for those miracles for you all and for precious Gavin.Fight on little man.We love you in California.

*sigh*
I wish there was something I could do...
I wish there was something *right* to say. Hang in there is so trite. Keep the faith...well, I'm sure you are. Thinking of you doesn't quite cut it.
*sigh*
I'll say lots of prayers for little Gavin - I hope he turns a corner and I hope you get a good night's rest.

my heart aches for you and mighty gavin...so I can only imagine how much more yours aches. There are no words for these times, sometimes just tears and those bring healing too. Love you and praying. I know you will find what you are looking for, just when you need it the most. I hate that miles are keeping me from giving you a hug and a latte.
