Monday Evening...

It's been a long day. Maybe Gavin's doing a tiny bit better-- but I just don't know. Everyone put their minds together today to try to figure out why Gavin is still is so much pain. The conclusion is that we think it's a few things combined -- inflammation, phantom pain, anxiety and maybe a few other things. We went up on his pain meds so we'll it he finds relief. Gavin is still running temps, though they are slowly coming down. He has been running a little over 101 all day but nothing higher.

Right now he has been sleeping for a few hours and I pray he wakes up a "new and improved" Gavin.

I'm so very sorry for his pain. I wish it weren't that way for him and for you as you have to sit back and watch him struggle. You remain in our thoughts and prayers. Trish Adams

Keeping sweet Gavin in my thoughts tonight. I hope that the doctors and nurses can find a way to sooth his pain and that he rests and gains the strength he needs to get well.
