I was able to get Gavin into his wheelchair today and we took a short stroll around the hospital. I'm not sure if he actually enjoyed it or not -- I know he certainly did not enjoy the actual act of placing him in his chair, even with the seat all the way back. He is very stiff and does not like to bend his abdomen at all. Gavin is still not himself. He had a rough night with lots of retching and moaning.
The positives are that we have weaned him off the Dilaudid pump and he is now on PRN doses. He seems to be doing pretty well with the wean. We have plans to go down to the OR tomorrow to place the broviac and then 48 hours later all antibiotics will stop. VERY SCARY -- for all involved.
The Omegaven should begin later this week, for those who asked.
Thanks as always for your continued support!
