We have heard that the surgery will be done on Tuesday, which is a little later than expected but the the two surgeons, Dr. Dunn and Katz need a little more time to map out their plan. We just need to pray Gavin stays infection free for the next 5 days. Gavin's fluid retention is still a problem. He was looking much better least evening after the lasix but puffed up again overnight. His eyes are as bad as the other day but he certainly still looks very swollen.
It's going to be a long weekend. Not only to we now have so much more time to let our mind think and worry but my grandmother suffered a major heart attack and other injuries related to a fall and is also very sick right now and we are not sure how things are going to go for her. We are asking for prayer for our entire family today particularly my mom who not only faces the reality with her own mother but also the situation here as well.
Many people are asking what they can do for us besides pray. I don't like to ask for things but one way to help is meals. We rely soly on food purchased from the cafe which, with an extended stay not only gets expensive but also monotonous. Besides that -- your prayers, support and messages on this site and through email are really helping us through this stressful time.
