The Phone...

My heart jumps anytime my phone rings. My mind automatically assumes it's the hospital calling to give bad news and unfortunately I'm usually right. Last night we received a call from Gavin's Doctor who informed us that Gavin's cultures are now growing fungus -- our old enemy previous to Gavin' bowel removal. Not only is it in the line but it is also growing out his bowel fluid as well, which means it's made it's home in Gavin yet again.

Gavin will be admitted on Monday to start the process of getting him clean. We plan on giving him the blood products he needs as well as more IVIG. Needless to say we are all very bummed -- but we are focusing on having a good weekend.

So sorry to hear about the fungus. Continuing to pray for you daily. I actually had a dream a few nights ago that Madison came over to play with my daughter Avery--if only we weren't all the way in the south they could actually play together :)
