A Wish...

-5385

After my long sad story about how we just can not be admitted -- Dr. R let us go. Actually - his labs were looking a little better so he felt we might be able to correct his electrolytes at home.  We'll see.  There is still a chance that we may need to come back.  One day at a time.  Gavin is still a mess.  I was hoping that the blood would perk him up, but it didn't.  I'm trying not to get so stressed out over it and just take one day at a time and try to find the progress, even the smallest glimpse, and thank God for it.   I actually felt better after spending some time with his doc and basically just spilling it all out.  I got the chance to review with him all the things that are going on and somehow -- I'm not sure how -- but somehow that made me feel a little more organized in my own mind.

Our evening ended on a very positive note -- Gavin is being granted a wish from the Make a Wish foundation! This is a great organization that helps fulfill wishes for terminally/chronically ill children and their families. Our wish ladies came out last night to interview our family, find out what our wish is and meet Gavin and try to determine what would make him happy.   We had lots of fun and the night ended with a feeling of joy -- that something positive will be happening for our children!  That makes me smile!

We are praying for a quiet week.  I will post is something is new to report.

Girl, I am so happy that you were able to spill it out...that you were able to hear things that in whatever way helped you understand things better..

I am happy that Gavi is getting a "wish" and that it will bring joy/smiles to ALL of your faces.

I am happy that God is God and you are His...

You are a family of tremendous strength! You remain in my prayers. Sometimes we just need to vent it all out and know that someone is listening. I'm sure it helps if that someone has knowledge about your fears also. :) I wish there was more we could do for you guys! I pray that He protects you all under the shelter of His wings!

If ever a family deserved a wish, it would be you! I'm so glad that you will be getting away to spend some quality time together and make some wonderful, happy memories! Continued prayers for more time at home and return of Gavi to his real self! Thinking of you...

I don't always post, but I pray for you and your family daily. I came over from Travis' blog. I just wanted you to know that I am still praying for you. I live in East Tennessee, next to the Great Smokey Mountains. If you ever want to come to Dollywood or see the mountains, let me know. Our family has a place (my grandmother's home) that you can stay for free.

He is so beautiful!
God must love him so much to be touching our hearts for him. I pray for him and have been prompted by the Holy Spirit to continue keeping him in my prayers.
And all of you...
Prayers and love from rainy Georgia!

I have been lighting a 7 day vigil candle for Gavin every week. God's light is shining for him in many many places. May his healing power touch Gavin and his strength be yours.

God Bless

My son Ricky got his wish (a Disney cruise) in 2006 and it was amazing. They make the whole experience so special.

Enjoy!
