Quick Update...

Gavin is doing better!  He has had his eyes open and is communicating with us a bit!  Also, we help his TPN last night and just ran his fluids at a low rate, which seems to have allowed his body to get rid of some of the extra fluid.  I think we are going to be able to stay home with maybe just an outpatient transfusion.

Thanks!

Hello friends.Without a computer at the hospital I have relied on my big girls for updates,as they have come to love you all as well.My heart has ached for the sadness, stress and uncertainty you have had to process and proceed with but as always,I know and knew, Mr. Gavin will show us things in his very own wondrous timing.He is truly a small but mighty fighter and will continue to do this slow and steady.Love to you all and sending you prayers of strength and healing to sweet Gavin.
