Gavin continues to improve! He is back in a crib bed, (When on a ventilator they put babies in a regular hospital bed) and I love seeing him more normal in a baby bed! It also means that he is doing better! When Caleb and I got here this morning Gavin was wide awake checking everything out. He is definately more aware and becoming more like himself! This makes my heart soar! I have been so worried about the possibility of brain damage, so it's so good to see him beginning to interact with everyone more! He's not back to where he was, but has made so much progress in the last 24 hours that I'm feeling more confident in him neurologically. I've been praying a lot about this and asking God to help me with doubting when I pray. I feel such relief when I do this.
Everyone here at the hospital that comes to see Gavin in the last day is very pleased with how well he is doing! I guess he should be called the come back kid! He keeps giving us and the doctors heart attacks, but then always bounces back! (By the Grace of God, of course!) I had a talking with him and told him Momma's heart can't handle much more, so he better shape up! I also told some of the staff that they would have to pull me screaming to "the floor" again! It is my hope that they will keep Gavin in the I.C.U. until he can go home. This way he can be watched more closely and there will be less of a chance of this happening again. I think that they thought I was kidding, but I'm not!
Please continue to pray for Gavin's brain function and that he can remain healthy! Pray for our family's patience. Pray for the doctors and nurses, that they are given wisdom. We sooo appreciate your prayers and support!
Have a great day!
Love, Alicia and Family
