Wednesday Happenings...

gavin shoes

Today was quite a day. I was all geared up for the Omegaven to begin early this morning but had to be posponed untill tomorrow due to a typo in the protocol write up. Things should be a go for tomorrow morning, but I'm holding off on the excitment untill I see it being hung on the pole.

We attempted to remove Gavin's Foley catheter but had no luck. I have to admit that this makes me very sad. I'm just not ready to think about another issue Gavin may have to deal with. We had a consult with urology today who recommended placing the foley back in and waiting until after Gavin's gets his line on Friday to remove it again. At that point it looks like Adam and I will need to strait cath Gavin's every four hours at home until his bladder recovers -- if it recovers. I am really praying that this issues will resolve over time. The urologist mention some decisions that may need to be made down the road if this continues -- all of which make me want to vomit.

Deep breath.

Please continue to pray for Gavin's recovery. He is making progress but it is so stinkin' slow. His body is so deconditioned that everything seems so difficult for him to accomplish. Enjoy the new photos -- and yes his little shoes are way too big, but so freakin' cute!

Oh goodness...I don't know how you're handling all the postponed-not yet-tomorrow-maybe later moments but I am so thankful that Gavin has such great parents to go through this with him...

He will one day testify about his parent's amazing strength of you of course you to his...

He looks SOOO adorable in those shoes!! Gotta rock the converse, right?!

Always praying,
Tiffani

Praying...praying...praying... and hoping those *&^%$ typos are really just part of the "Master's plan". Dear Lord, fill this family with your unexpected joy, grace and EASE this day. Remind them in some tangible way that You and You alone are in control. Reward these young, yet wise and faithful parents, a hundred-fold for walking this sometimes dark and lonely passage in faithfulness to You.
Love and prayers from MI.
