Gavin continues to do well at home. He's more fussy than usual the last couple of days. I think he's beginning to get spoiled. He's fine if someone is holding him or giving him attention. I asked for it though! I wasn't happy when he wasn't crying, right?! He's still a very good baby, but just showing us a little of that attitude again.

As for his brain function, we still don't know how much was lost, if any. He's not quite back to his self before the seizures, but definately getting closer. He still takes anti-seizure medicine and hasn't had anymore seizures. He goes in for an appointment with the neurologist in July for a follow-up. Only time will tell. I would probably put him at a level of a 3-4 month old. He is 8 months now. Whether this is due to brain damage or just being sedated and ill for so long, we don't know. Keep this matter in your prayers please!

Have a great day! Thanks for your support!

Love, Alicia and Family

Hey Alicia, Keely sent me this poem and said she also emailed to you....but I think it's such a wonderful poem, that I thought I would share for your 'family'!! I love you!!

A meeting was held quite far from Earth
It was time again for another birth.
Said the Angels to the Lord above-
This special child will need much love.
His progress may be very slow
Accomplishment he may not show.
And he'll require extra care
From the folks he meets down there.
He may not run or laugh or play
His thoughts may seem quite far away
So many times he will be labeled
different, helpless and disabled.
So, let's be careful where he is sent.
We want his life to be content.
Please, Lord, find the parents who
Will do a special job for you.
They will not realize right away
The leading role they are asked to play.
But with this child sent from above
Comes stronger faith, and richer love.
And soon they'll know the privilege given
In caring for their gift from heaven.
Their precious charge, so meek and mild
Is heaven's very special child.
