I'm proud to say that it looks like the "corner" has been turned! It's like a switch went on in Gavin's little body finally reminding it "oh, ya -- this is how I'm supposed to function." His pain is almost at a zero, though it's hard to tell since he is seriously dopped up. His symptoms of withdraw are still very intense and are making him so jittery and sweaty, I'll be requesting to go up on the Colonodine patch today and hopefully that will help him.
The things left to accomplish are as follows:
Wean down Narcotics.
Take out Foley catheter -- and see the river flow.
Remain fever free.
Have negative blood cultures.
Begin Omegaven and monitor labs for 4 days.
Pack our bags and run towards the door like our bottoms were set on fire.
