Tuesday Afternoon...

Things are rather frustrating around here. Gavin continues to be in pain and it seems to be getting worse. We did an ultrasound this morning and it did show that both his liver and spleen have enlarged since last week, but not real convinced that it what is causing all this. He also spiked a fever this afternoon over 103, cultures were drawn again -- just like everyday, so we'll see.

I'm just getting tired of watching him like this. It's just not fair for any of us. I know everyone is trying hard but it just seems like nothing is working.

We also have attempted to remove the foley cathater again a few hours ago -- still no urine but we are giving it 4 to 6 hours. With the amount of fluid he is getting he should be putting out around 50 to 75ml's an hour. If we don't see this the catheter goes back in.

Poor little guy.

Father, I know You are watching, You see what is going on with Gavin's body. God, please grant wisdom to someone to find the source of the pain that it can be dealt with. Speak Father, help someone hear Your words. Cause the organs left in his body to function as You created them to function. Jesus we cry out for grace and mercy...be their comforter. In Jesus name, AMEN

oh what a sweet prayer above and I echo it...

my goodness, you are strength and grace under pressure, girl and I am inspired that you are holding together but I hope that if you need to fall apart you have a moment to do that too....

I am beseeching our Heavenly Father with you and for you!

Praying for wisdom and peace. May the Lord give Gavin and your family a much needed break from all of this agony.

Father, You are greater than all men and we ask for your wisdom to be bestowed upon the doctors and nurses right now and for You to alleviate Gavin from his pain. We pray for peace and faith for his family and that You will provide them with the strength they need. In Jesus Name we pray, AMEN

Oh that sweet boy, I am so hoping that his little body can break past this pain and that you all can get some peace. I know there is nothing more painful for a parent to see their child in pain...I am so sorry.

You don't know me. I feel like I know you though. I read your updates every day and I pray for your whole family, especially Gavin. But, the rest of you two because it has got to be exhausting and absolutely heart breaking to go through what you are going through. When my daughter was little (she's 30 now) she had some life-threatening issues too, nothing as severe as your Gavin but severe, just the same. And, it was hard. Very, very hard. And it was frustrating every time she would have setback. So, I can relate. In a way. Just know that there are so many who care. If I were closer I'd come help you...but I cannot. I can pray though...and I will...and I do.
