Update...

We are here -- inpatient that is. I'm actually feeling a bit better being in this place -- some closure to this horrible week. The plan is to pull the line tomorrow, after an ultrasound so we can look at the clot and just make sure there are no dangers surrounding the removal. Gavin is doing ok -- he obviously is not 100% but he's hanging in there. The ID doc came by and confirmed that this fungus situation is so difficult. We are trying to keep him healthy by giving him treatment but the treatment we are using is selecting more resistant forms of yeast, which is scary. Sadly, there really is not much we can do about this.
Adam and Madison just left for Ronald McDonald and Gavin just fell asleep. We are about to start Gavi's Ampho and I think I'm going to run to target to pick up all the things I forgot at home.
Thanks so much for all your prayers -- seriously you all are amazing. We are so grateful for the huge support you all provide. I'll update again tomorrow.

Karen,
I've been following your dreadful week - I'm so sorry it was so rough in so many ways! I was so angry (even though you were so kind!) about the person who clotted Gavin's line. Arrgh. Good luck tomorrow...I'll be praying.
kate.

We will keep the prayers coming for a better week ahead and for Gavin as he faces new challenges. Stay strong and give that little one a hug from all of us!
