It has been another difficult week here in the Owens' house -- not so much physically but just mentally. Adam and I are still struggling with watching Gavin's blank stare but I guess it's getting a little easier. Maybe.
Gavin is still running fevers on and off. We are now 48 hours on antibiotics so I am praying that things start to improve. He will certainly need blood early next week as we can all see the color draining from his little body. I was able to talk with the doc via email yesterday and sadly I didn't really get any information other than what we all know -- Gavin isn't doing well. Our doctor reminded us that Gavin has proved him wrong on more than one occasion and we are all praying he will do it again. Gavin had a scary episode of dropping his oxygen saturation yesterday, which had me very worried and about to run to the nearest ER but thankfully he was able to pull out of it. Lately when Gavin sleeps it seems like he is so fatigued that his body literally shuts down, including his breathing. He takes such shallow breaths that I think yesterday it caught up with him and he woke up grunting for air and hyperventilating. It took about an hour but then returned to 98% or above.
Yesterday Madison started cheerleading and just loved it. She did a really good job and even though I wasn't in the class watching I would sneak a peak through the window and she was having a blast! I love seeing her happy, especially when I know things are a little tense here at home.
Thank you all for your prayers. Keep them coming.
