The Plan...

We are an "add-on" for the OR today to have Gavin's central line replaced, his femoral line pulled out and a bone marrow aspiration. "Add-on" can mean anything from early this morning to sometime next week -- I'm praying for somewhere in between.

It's been long stay here -- not so much in the number of days but rather the high level of stress. We are ready to go home. Please keep in prayer the many families that spend countless days in this place, particularly a little girl we met who will be traveling to CHOP after her long six week stay here.

You all are the best!

Praying you are "added on" sooner rather then later!

Hi Karen,
We met at the pool this past summer (i had the 3 girls and was pregnant). My family and I pray for Gavin and your family every night. I think of you often. This is an insane amount of emotional stress on your family. God Bless all of you and Gavin to give you the strength you need. Is there a PO Box or address where I can send you something? My heart goes out to your family.
