Gavin is going home tomorrow!!! The doctor came in and said, "We are sending Gavin home today." I was shocked, happy and worried! I asked for one more day to clean the house real good and organize his stuff. (My mom and aunt and friends are going to help-THANKYOU!) I'm so glad the doctor agreed to the extra day! The doc said that Gavin has been ready to go home for a couple of days and that they were keeping him here while they figured out the surgery plan. The plan now is to have the surgery done at U of M. This is good and bad news. The bad news is that we'll be away from home and a lot more planning will need to be done. The good news is that they can do the pacemaker surgery and G-tube surgery at the same time, instead of one week apart. So, just one surgery will probably be better on Gavin. We didn't want this, but God's plan is always better than ours! We don't know when the surgery will be, but probably in the next couple of weeks.
Gavin looks great today and is doing very well. We have a lot of things to learn before we take him home. (How to work the feeding pump, med schedule and how to give him his nebulizer treatments.) So, we'll be busy in the next 24 hours! Pray for us! It will be somewhat scary taking him home at first. I know we can do it, with God's help and your prayers!
Have a wonderful Mother's Day all you moms out there! A BIG thankyou to Julie and her friends for the thoughtful card and gift that they sent me! I cried. This year will be especially special having all my boys at home!
