Hello Omegaven...

It's here and it's infusing! So far Gavin has begun the Omegaven with no issues and we are looking forward to seeing our little boy grow thanks to the much needed calories the new fish fat can provide. Other that the Omegaven it's been a rather quiet day. The foley is back in and Gavin is more comfortable. His withdrawal is about the same. We are looking into some rectal forms of both Valium and the Dilaudid so that the narcotics do not keep us here.

Dare I say we have a tentative discharge of Monday -- I'm not getting my hopes up, but it's just kinda nice to think about it. :)

The video brought tears to my eyes! One, because you were able to watch the miracle lipid flow, the other because I missed that magic moment with Ryan.
That will be how you will hang it at home. Did you get the video? I can send you our silver tabs. We also taped around the tabs for extra security. We never went anywhere during Omegaven time. The bottle can't tip and the spike can slip out. Let me know if I can be anymore help.
Big smiles,

I was awoken at 4am with a migraine and have been using that usually painful time lately to lift up others in prayer. Gavin was high on my prayer list (beaten only by Abby Riggs). Please know that even though people may not post, you are constantly being surrounded by cyber prayer warriors approaching His throne on your behalf.

With much prayer for healing flowing thru the Omegaven,

Congrats on the Omegaven. Good to see Gavin with that bottle hooked up to him.

We have some plastic rings that slip on the bottom of the bottle that make hanging easier than usin the strips or tape, let us know if you need a couple and we will send them.

After months of praying for the Omegaven...fighting for it...I'm sure it mustbe surreal. I hope it's more than you thought it would be. And I hope you go home Monday to escape my cooking!! :-)

I'm so glad.
