Gavin and I are worn out! We haven't been getting much sleep or rest. The poor little guy is really suffering from reflux right now. He doesn't seem to be in any pain from the recent surgery, but since the surgery he has been gagging and spitting up a lot. He tries to sleep, but then cries and acts like he's going to throw up. It seems to really hurt him. I am concerned that when he spits up it will be aspirated into his lungs, which with Gavin especially is not good. He already always has extra fluid in his lungs and more could cause infection, pnuemonia or more congestive heart failure. I hate seeing him continue to suffer! It is definately wearing on me! I keep wondering why this suffering has to keep going on for him! Please pray for him and me!
We have an appointment with the surgeon who is going to do the stomach wrap and G- tube today. I pray that it can be done soon. This surgery should help prevent a lot of this. Right now the date is set for June 12, but this could be changed because the surgeon already has two cases and may feel that is enough to do in one day. Please pray that it can be done soon and that it goes well!
You could also add some prayers in there about my summer home with the boys! I'm already going out of my mind! I've decided that boys are crazy and disgusting! The things they come up with and find funny is beyond my comprehension! I won't share any stories because I'd only be embarrassed, but I assure you that I could use your prayers in understanding them and dealing with them all home together EVERY day! I'm sure it will get better once we all get used to it again and when things settle down some with Gavin, but in the mean time.....
Thanks for your continued prayers and interest for our family! I'm sure you're very interested now that I've got you wondering about what those boys are up to, but for now I'm not sharing! Maybe some day when I am able to laugh about it!
Also, please be in prayer for families and staff of the crash victims from the U of M hospital. I just learned that one of their Survival Flight planes crashed and 6 have died. Gavin rode with them twice on a helicopter.(Not the same people on board, but part of their staff.) The service they do daily for patients is amazing! I know they will be greatly missed!
Love, Alicia and Family
