Looking a Little Rough...

-0393-0390

We are home after a long crazy day at the hospital yesterday. Yesterday Gavin received blood and platelets before going to the OR as his counts took a huge drop over night. He did well with the new line, though they were unable to do the bone marrow aspiration due to lack of staff. No big deal. These photos were taken on our way out the door yesterday, and as you can see he is looking a bit rough around the edges. He is doing well today and slept the entire day, which is a good thing as his body just needs to rest.

So now we get back into the swing of things. We have some crazy/good changes happening in the next month, which when the time is right I will share. Please keep us in your prayers are we tie up lots of loose ends in our life!

Thanks for helping us through yet another stay at DuPont!

I keep checking back for updates and I'm so glad you posted. Can't wait to see pictures of Gavin after he's been home for a few days. You can always tell in his photos when he has spent time at home in his own bed because even though his face may not be smiling, is eyes are.

Lots of love from Saskatchewan.

Poor Gavin. He looks worn out! Good luck and godspeed on all of your loose ends. I remember some of them and I know you must be excited to get going on that.

Strength, mom! :)

So thankful you all are back home. Its my favorite place to be. I have a feeling you might share that sentiment. I'm hoping for a long, long stay without anymore infections popping up. He's still amazingly beautiful even though he's been roughed up a little. Thinking of you all. Trish Adams

He might look a little rough around the edges but there's a fighter in those beautiful eyes. Praying for a peaceful, long rest for all of you!
