Gavin is home from the hospital! He came home yesterday afternoon. He is doing so much better! He was sent home on a small amount of oxygen which we are to wean as he tolerates. We are so thankful that he is feeling better and that we can all be home again together! It sure does make life a lot easier! He seems very happy to be home too. He's been 'talking' lots to us and seems to be very content.

We had a great time at the Buddy walk on Saturday! We were all sad that Gavin wasn't there with us, but it was fun seeing all the adorable kids walking! It gave me great hope seeing so many with Down syndrome doing so well! It also made me sad thinking that Gavin may not advance as far as they seem to have come. It was very uplifting to be there though! Everything went great, besides my freaking out for a couple of minutes when I couldn't find Nolan and Caleb! I'm so thankful to all of you who came to support us, Gavin and the association! Thanks also to those of you who donated! A BIG thankyou to Jill who put so much effort into making the day and fundraising such a success!!!

We are very blessed to have so much support and love in our lives! Thankyou!

On a side note: Does anyone know of a baby who is on Similac Neosure formula? Gavin has been on this, but was switched while hospitalized. He's kinda on a diet! He impressed the doctors so much with his weight gain that they decided he didn't need to be on this kind anymore. We have 12-15 cans that I'd hate to have go to waste! Let me know. Thanks!

Have a great week!

Love, Alicia and Family
