Happy to be Home!







Gavin is very glad to be home and we are so happy that he is! We got home yesterday evening and it felt so good! Gavin slept so good last night, in his own bed, and so did we! I even had to wake him up this morning at 9:00 so that I could do his breathing treatments. (Thanks Grandpa for taking my big brothers to school so that I could sleep in!!) He never sleeps this late, so he must have needed some extra sleep after being rudely awakened all week long by those pesky nurses and annoying oxygen masks!

He came home still coughing a lot, having to do extra breathing treatments than he normally does and having to take steroids for the next 10 days, but HE'S HOME!!! Thanks for your prayers, help and support! We are so blessed!


"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!" Psalm 150:6
