Hope you all enjoyed your memorial day weekend! We thought we would have a boring one stuck at home, but Gavin is always so thoughtful in making sure that we are kept busy and full of excitement. He decided Saturday that he had had enough of his feeding tube and while momma was in the bathroom he yanked it right out! This used to be no problem when the end of the tube was in his stomach, because then I could just put another back in. This tube is placed just past the stomach and needs to be placed under x-ray to make sure it's in the right spot. So, we spent half the day at the hospital waiting to get it replaced. Jacob and Nolan were away for the weekend, but we had Caleb with us. His summary of our trip to the hospital? "That was a lot of fun!" Well, at least one of us thought so!
Gavin has been more fussy than usual and still not smiling much. It's beginning to wear on me! I pray that after these next surgeries, he will be more comfortable and happier. He does still sleep through the night, which is a saving grace! Without this sleep I think that I would be a wreck considering how worn out I feel from everything else.
We hope to find out when he'll be having the surgery in Ann Arbor tomorrow. We'll let you know when we do.
Thanks for your continued prayers! I feel I'm really needing them this weekend! Pray that I can have the energy (physical and emotional) to do all that is needed to be done right now. Pray that Gavin stays healthy and is more content. Pray that his surgeries are scheduled soon and that they go well! We appreciate all that is being offered up for our family! THANKYOU!
Jacob said something that lightened my heart today. He said that just like Joseph in the Bible had to go through stuggles, our family has had to go through them with Gavin. He also said that just like Joseph's struggles brought about great things, he sees great things happening to our family through our struggles with Gavin. He said he sees it everywhere. He is right! We are struggling, but we also know that God has a purpose for all of this, just like He did with Joseph! This gives us great comfort! Sometimes children are smarter than us adults! I really needed to hear this today! I thought I would share this with all of you because maybe you could use a reminder too!
Love, Alicia and Family
