Gavin just got out of surgery. The surgeon says that he is happy with how things went and that everything should go well. I'm waiting to be able to go in to see him. The anesthesiologist decided that Gavin should stay on the ventilator until he is fully awake from the surgery to make sure his airway stays protected. He is recovering in the I.C.U. Pray that they will be able to get him off the vent today and that Gavin does well with his recovery! They plan to keep him for about 3 days.

I'll keep you posted on how he's doing. Thanks for your continued prayers for Gavin!

Love, Alicia and Family

YAY!! So glad he's out and the surgeon said things went well. The next 3 days will be all about relaxing and getting strong again - for both you AND Gavin, Alicia! :o) Keep us posted and let me know if there is anything I can do from here. Can't wait to see the little guy without a feeding tube down his cute little button nose!

Hugs and love from Lansing,

FANTASTIC NEWS! I've been sitting on pins and needles as I always do during Gavin's surgeries. THANK YOU LORD! Praying the surgery will get rid of the nasty acid reflux, and I'm so excited that he doesn't have the feeding tube in his nose any longer! Hopefully soon he will be off oxygen and what a relief that will be...we won't have to worry about how to pick him up and can more easily transport him from room to room. You will actually be able to leave the house with him once in a while, without all the tubes, etc! I'm so happy!

Love you all.
