Monday Update...

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!

Please share with Gavin.
Think about this time next year.
Forget about the moment-by-moment and just feel the luxury of believing God for a better day this time next year. I'm believing that with all my heart. Stay strong. Tell God you canNOT do this anymore, He will have to do this through you. He will, you know.
Sister, I am praying for all of you. With loads of love.
God bless you all and may the sun shine brightly on you and give you peace. May the wind be always at your back. And may God hold you tightly as you walk a pilgrim's path. Praying an Irish song for your heart.

My dear Gavin, It was so good to be with you yesterday. Even though we could only stand by your crib and hold your hand. It was time so precious. Pappy and I love you so much. Love, Grammy Owens PS Thanks Madi for a fun afternoon. You do know all the best places to play! Hugs and Kisses
