You might remember back in March when I said that Gavin had had surgery in JAN, Feb, and Mar and that I hoped not April because I was booked for the month. Well, God had different plans! Gavin will be having surgery next week to put in a permanent feeding tube into his abdomen and also to wrap his stomach to help prevent reflux. This will be a positive surgery because Gavin will no longer need the NG tube down his nose and throat and he won't be in pain with refluxing. So, although we don't want him to have to go through more, it will be good in the long run.

Gavin settled into his new room on the floor well. He had a great night except for running a temperature again. When we moved into the room yesterday Caleb made sure that the nurses were on the ball. He went into the bathroom and pulled the help cord right away! I heard a siren type noise and then a couple nurses came running! So, we are confident that Gavin will be well taken care of! They might just get him well quick to get this crazy family out of there!

Hope you have a great day! Keep up those prayers! Thankyou!

Love, Alicia
