I think we may have made some progress today --- do you hear my sigh of relief? Although Gavin continues to be in very intense pain we did manage to break his fever with the toradol, which provided him with some relief. The toradol only lasted a short time but at least it gave Gavin -- and us a break. The ultrasound of his belly look pretty good. There was not as much fluid as thought but there was some concern about the thickness of this abdominal wall. His one side has a large section of edema, so we need to keep a close eye on that.
The photo above was the day of surgery -- doesn't he look great? I was thinking that I just needed to look back to help me look towards the future. This will end, Gavin will get through this.
Lets pray for a nice quiet evening here in PICU room 17.
