Madison created this work of art this morning -- made me smile, very big. Just wanted to point out daddy's hair and the fact that she wanted to make sure that I knew that there was a difference between adult teeth and baby teeth. Of course there is the ever present ostomy. I find it really interesting that in the past Madison always would draw lots of lines and pumps coming from her brother -- I'm not so sure she really sees the medical equipment anymore. Kinda cool. In fact, most children really don't take note of Gavin's tubes unless they sense their parents being uncomfortable around Gavin. The one thing that seems to bother children the most is the mask Gavin often wears over his mouth to protect him from germs. Today I over heard a child ask his mother, "why does that baby have a diaper over it's mouth." I would have loved to hear the explanation.
Anyway, things are rather quiet around here. Gavin is doing ok, though still having periods of lethargy. We are continuing on all four antibiotics so that should help keep him clean for the next week or so. We are just trying to enjoy every second at home.
So happy to be home.
