Saturday/Sunday Update

Gavin continues to improve - swelling is getting better. Surgeon will most likely close up Gavin's chest on Monday. Nurses have removed his catheter and have started giving him small doses (1cc per hour) of breat milk - this is not necessarily for nutrition but to get his "gut area" (the nurse's term) to slowly start working again. He is absolutely precious! Thanks again for the continued thoughts and prayers for everyone involved!!

We are really happy to hear that Gavin is getting stronger and vitals are stable. We check several times a day for updates. The pictures are really great. Love the OU socks!

Love you all and wish we could visit.

So happy to hear things are still steadily improving!! When Jon and I got to church this morning our preacher said, "When my alarm went off this morning the first thing I thought about was Gavin, so I layed there and said a prayer for the little guy." I almost cried right then and there! Many other people at church also asked about Gavin, as well as his sweet parents. Just remember that MANY prayers are being said on your behalf!!! I pray things continue to improve. Can't wait to see you later this week!!

P.S. Can I give Gavin a mullet when I come visit? That's a popular hairstyle in Tennessee. :)
