Gavin is going to have an upper GI test done today to see how bad of a reflux he has. If it's bad enough they will move the tube he is being fed through past his stomach so that there is less of a chance for the formula and medications he receives to come back up. We've also talked about having a permanent tube placed into his abdomen (called a G tube or J tube) to give him his nourishment and meds through. This would mean another surgery, but in the long run it would be better for Gavin and us. This tube would allow for Gavin to not have a tube down his nose and throat, which would make him more comfortable, I'm sure!

He was a little more fussy than he has been the last few days yesterday. It may be due to refluxing which hurts. Please continue to pray for Gavin. Thanks for your support!

Caleb and I are headed up to spend the day with the Vinster. I'm sure Caleb will keep Gavin happy and distracted!

Have a great day! God is Good!

Love, Alicia
