Friday's Scoop...

Things are still relatively quiet today and we hope it will stay that way until Tuesday. Gavin is doing better today but we are still seeing fluid retention especially in his face. The albumin we gave him two days ago didn't raise his levels so we giving him another infusion today. His white count is also back down to one -- so pray that we can keep him healthy over the weekend. We have a few other slight concerns but I'm not going to even mention them because they are small and hopefully they will stay that way.

Gavin, Madison and I went down to the gym this morning for some therapy time, which was a lot of fun. Gavin's hasn't had any therapies in a long time due to him always being sick, but he feels good right now and I wanted to try to find him some equipment to use. We found a great desk like table to place in the crib for him to play on and color, while sitting in his chair. So far, it's a huge success! Madison was just thrilled to see a part of the hospital she has never seen.

Madison and I have a date tonight. We are going to a local cafe for some cupcakes and then we are having a girls night at Ronald McDonald House. Truth is -- she will probably watch tons of TV and I will hopefully fall fast asleep! Madi and I both need some time away together so Daddy will be taking the night shift here at the hospital.

Thanks so much for all the responses on the meals. If you are from our church look out for some information on Sunday where you will be able to sign up on a list. If you are a friend from elsewhere you can contact my good friend Dawn who is helping me coordinate all this and can be emailed at dawn@mstar.org for more information. If you have already contacted me and we made arrangements -- thanks!


You all are simply amazing. I know I say that a lot, but your kindness has completely touched our lives!
